Former President John Agyekum Kufuor’s office has denied claims that the former head of state has departed from the land of the living.
The report was incorrect, according to a statement published by Kufuor’s office and signed by Dr. Kwabena Osei-Adubofour, his Senior Aide and Spokesman.
It reported the former president was OK and going about his business.
We wish to completely refute such an occurrence and announce unequivocally that the former president is very much alive and well, according to the statement.
“We, therefore, urge the general public to disabuse their minds of these malicious and uncanny rumours that spring out of nothing,” the statement said.

Reports of the demise of Former President John Agyekum Kufuor are false
The Office of Former President John Kufuor has, over the past several days, been inundated with persistent rumours of the supposed passing away of Former President John Kufuor.
We wish to categorically deny such an occurrence and state emphatically that the former president is very much alive and well.
We, therefore, urge the general public to disabuse their minds of these malicious and uncanny rumours that spring out of nothing.
The office further urges those who may be behind the propagation of such wicked untruths to desist from them henceforth; there have been far too many.
We can only speculate that the perpetrators do so out of mischief-making and possibly for unfathomable political purposes.
We pray for God’s continuous blessings on our former president.
