PRESS STATEMENT

Unfortunately, he gave up the ghost, despite strenuous attempts made by health personnel at Agogo Presbyterian Hospital to revive him.

The Hon. Member Parliament for Asante Akim North Constituency, Andy Appiah Kubi and the entire NPP fraternity are still anguished by this event.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

Following this rather agonizing event, my attention has been drawn to a rumour circulating in town that the Hon, Member of Parliament for Asante Akim North Constituency, Andy Appiah Kubi is behind our brothers death, with people seeking to suggest that Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi, used our brother Kwabena Amaning for ritual sacrifice in order to enhance his political fortunes in the constituency.

This has generated controversy from the public especially, among NPP members in the constituency.  

I wish to state that as someone who is a product of Christianity, I will never contemplate such an evil thought, let alone perpetuate it.

I wish to admonish the public and all NPP faithfuls within the Asante Akim North Constituency not to be hook winged by this obvious hatchet job intended to smear the name of Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi.

Long live the NPP,

Long live Asante Akim North Constituency,

Long live Ghana.

...Singed…
