Former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings says she has not asked the leadership of the NDC to apologise to the newly elected Member of Parliament, Lydia Seyram Alhassan and Ghanaians in general.

Media reports suggested that the former First Lady had asked the NDC to apologize to Ms Alhassan for their "Bloody widow" comment.

Former First Lady reacting to reports circulated in the print media, radio and TV networks headlined ''Wicked NDC is a threat to women freedom'' -Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, she stated that ''I wish to state emphatically that at no point have I issued any such statement''.

According to Nana Konadu, who is also the President of Developing Women for Mobilisation (DWM), formerly 31st December Women’s Movement, an NGO,stated that “the Facebook page is fake and being used by some unscrupulous cowards who cannot or do not want to write things in their own names but are bent on destroying my name.”

The former first lady said,“ I do not need to stress that I have been advocating and fighting for the rights and the cause of women for over 30 years on various issues affecting women''.

''However, I abhor lies, deception and connivance of schemes to attribute to me statements which I have not made,” she added.

It is for this reason, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings stated that “I want to clear the air for Ghanaians that I have not issued a statement on any occurrence in Parliament nor on Parliamentarians''.

Mrs Rawlings also called on all those carrying the falsehood and outright lies to put an end to it.

“I want to send a word of caution to the perpetrators that impersonation is an offence and they should desist from this act before the law catches up with them.”
