The office of His Royal Majesty, Ndan Yaa Naa Abukari II, the King of Dagbon State in Ghana’s Northern Region, has vehemently denied ever having blasted Hon Kennedy Agyapong, a New Patriotic Party(NPP) Presidential hopeful according to an official statement issued in Yendi, Friday.
This was in response to allegations carried by some online media portals to the effect that, the King had taken a swipe at the latter during his recent courtesy call on him at the Royal Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.
“This is a palpable falsehood and a figment of the author’s imagination.
“Hon Kennedy Agyapong was accorded high respect and dignity befitting a contender to the high office of President of Ghana during his visit to the Palace.
“His Majesty and the Royal Court appreciate Honourable Agyapong and could not have made such derogatory remarks to him.
“His Majesty did not certainly use words or language on Honourable Agyapong, a person with enormous respect for the palace.
“The Gbewaa Palace therefore condemns this wicked and despicable lies and political propaganda and caution all and sundry to desist from patent distortion of statements and remarks by His Majesty the Yaa Na, especially during the visits of politicians.
“The Gbewaa Palace is apolitical and wishes Hon Kennedy Agyapong well in his campaigns” the official statement signed on behalf of His Royal Majesty by his secretary, Alhaj Abdul-Rahman Mohammed, concluded.
