It said Mr Kufuor "vehemently detests the developing trend in disinformation that mischievously seeks to draw President Kufuor into issues that he has not commented on."

"The former President is as concerned as, perhaps more so than, others for the wellbeing and stability of Ghana, and in his own way is doing whatever he can for the nation to get on top of the seemingly intractable difficulties currently engulfing our society, and would be the last person to play petty and uninformed politics in the circumstances.

"At any time that Mr. Kufuor deems it fit to comment publicly on national issues, he would not hesitate to do so. But, he would definitely not be drawn in, on other people's terms and agenda," it added.
