I’ve not attacked Ken Agyapong – Mac Manu

The Campaign Manager of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Peter Mac Manu, has issued a disclaimer regarding allegations that he described Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) Kennedy Ohene Agyapong as a mole within the NPP.

A publication on indicated that Mr. Manu had made comments to the effect that “Ken Agyapong is a deep-rooted paid agent of the NDC planted to destroy the NPP”.

In a disclaimer, however, Mr. Mac Manu said: “For the record, I have not made any such comments about the Hon Ken Agyapong and I have no basis for doing so. The story is obviously yet another desperate and shameless fabrication from one of the many discredited online news portals operated by assigns of the NDC ostensibly to set NPP leadership on a failed collision course.”

He said he was currently on a campaign tour, meeting with people from the Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions “who are working tirelessly for the NPP's victory in the December elections”.

Mr. Mac Manu said he “would normally not respond to such obvious falsehoods on the Internet but it had become rather necessary to expose this vicious propaganda and lies from the NDC”.

He entreated all members of the NPP and other Ghanaians who are unhappy with President John Mahama's administration “to remain focused on the all-important agenda of removing the NDC from office come December 7 and not be distracted by the usual NDC lies”.
