The Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party’s 2012 Campaign team, Nana Akomea has debunked claims that the refusal by former President J.A. Kufuor to comment on Nana Addo’s “all die be die” statement, is a clear indication that he does not support Nana Addo’s position.

Former President Kufuor declined to comment on the statement when asked by the Castle Press Corp after his meeting with President Mills at the Castle on Tuesday.

“Why don’t you go and ask him…..ask the maker of the statement?” former President Kufuor said in his response to the question.

But Nana Akomea said the former President did not go to the Castle to discuss the ‘all die be die’ statement, but rather national issues pertaining the development of the country.

He said Nana Addd did explained what he meant by the statement in his recent news conference in Ho so it was of no significance for Mr. Kufuor to again explain the statement.

“Kufuor is a matured person, at least he has been president for this country for eight years, so he knows how to discuss issues in the public”, Nana Akomea told Adakabre Frimpong Manso on Adom Fm’s Dwaso Nsem on Wednesday.

Nana Akomea stressed that former President Kufuur was right in telling the media to go and ask Nana Addo the meaning of his ‘all die be die’ statement if they still have issues with it.

Nana Akomea however said he believed the former President will at the appropriate time, come out with his views on the controversaial “all die be die” statement.
