The National House of Chiefs has rebuked people trying to attract its Head, Togbe Afede XIV into the questionable Agyapa Royalties deal.
The National House of Chiefs gave the caution adhering to the circulation of a statement supposed to have actually been released by Togbe Afede to condemn some supposed ethnocentric comments made by flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama on the agreement.
In a release, the Agbogbomefia of Asogli State encouraged Ghanaians as well as the media to ignore such statements by “individuals clearly looking for methods to legitimize wrongdoing.”
“The House wants to state without equivocation that neither the President nor the leadership of the House has issued such a statement or press release. It is therefore preposterous for any person or group of persons to attempt to draw the President and the National House of Chiefs into the controversial Agyapa/Asaase royalties transaction,” the release said.
The National House of Chiefs has further prompted the Inspector General of Police and the Director-General of Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to investigate into the matter.
