Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has denied claims on social media that he wrote the Chief of Staff requesting to give the State six months of his salary.

According to the fabricated press release, the former president made the offer as a show of support for the government as it works to lead the country out of the current economic crisis.

In a statement by the former president through his personal assistant, Dr. Kwabena Osei Adubofour, the claims are false and should not be taken seriously.

“The attention of the Office of former President John Kufuor has been drawn to a fake reportage on social media and in some sections of the traditional media to the effect that President Kufuor has written to the Chief of Staff at the Presidency to request that six months of his salary should be forfeited to the state.”

“This Office wants to emphatically state that the reportage is fake and should be treated with the contempt that it deserves. We are at a loss as to the object of such reportage and call for rational reflection on the use of the present avenues of communication that the digital age affords all of us.”

“A communication emanating from our office will never get the former President’s last name of KUFUOR wrongly spelt. The Office of former President Kufuor, therefore, urges the general public to utterly disregard this mischievous piece,” the statement read.
