Fred Amankwah-Sarfo is not a member of Akufo-Addo Campaign Team

The attention of the Office of Nana Akufo-Addo has been drawn to the cover story of The Chronicle of Wednesday, May 5, 2010, with the headline, 'Akufo-Addo Fires Gov't Again: Mills is Visionless'.
The statement issued by Fred Amankwa-Sarfo gave the misimpression that it was issued on behalf of the campaign team of Nana Akufo-Addo. This statement has been widely circulated and in media interviews granted on it, Fred Amankwah-Sarfo was addressed as a member of Akufo-Addo's campaign team.
The Office wishes to place on record that no such statement has been issued by Nana Akufo-Addo's campaign team and also that Fred Amankwah-Sarfo is not a member of the campaign.
We have since met the enterprising Mr Amankwa-Sarfo, who happens to be a passionate and committed supporter of Nana Akufo-Addo's presidential bid for 2012.
He admits that the statement was issued in his personal capacity and that any impressions given by his statement that the words expressed were directly from Nana Akufo-Addo or his campaign team was deeply regrettable.
We will encourage him and other patriotic Ghanaians who are committed to the 2012 project of the New Patriotic Party to bring back hope to Ghanaians to continue with their constructive criticisms of the Mills-Mahama administration and their defence of the truth and Akufo-Addo's remarkable service and contribution to the cause of party and country.
