Spokesperson for suspended National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party [NPP], Nana Yaw Osei has refuted reports making headlines in the media as Christmas and New Year message issued on December 24, 2016 by  Mr. Paul Afoko.

The alleged statement signed by Paul Afoko read “I pray for God’s blessings for everyone and urge members of our party to use the yuletide to do a self-introspection with the view to reforming our conduct for the good of the party and country”

The false statement captured Mr. Afoko cautioning the NPP not to disappoint Ghanaians as they voted massive for the party in the just ended elections. “Ghanaians expect a lot from us and we must not dare to disappoint them.”

However, speaking to Primenewsghana, Mr. Afoko’s spokesperson Nana Yaw Osei stated categorically that no such statement has been issued by Mr. Paul Afoko and therefore any message allegedly coming from Mr. Afoko’s end as “Christmas and New Year message” is totally false and must be treated in its early days with contempt it deserve.

Nana Yaw Osei also stated emphatically that, he is responsible for every message from the camp of Mr. Afoko, and even if his boss want to send a message out he as a spokesperson will be briefed ahead of time.
