I have not quit politics – Akufo-Addo

The office of Nana Akufo-Addo has rebuffed speculations that he has relinquished plans of contesting the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries ahead of the 2016 general elections.
An Accra based tabloid, The Al-Hajj, reported on Friday that the twice defeated presidential candidate had finally thrown in the towel due to his age and poor health.
A statement signed by Nana Akufo-Addo’s aide, Kow Essuman and posted on his facebook wall stressed: “Nana Akufo-Addo has made no such decision. As indicated before his departure to London last September, he will make known his future in Ghanaian politics on his return to Ghana, which will be very shortly”.
It described the report as “blatant falsehood” adding that “this alleged news item only exemplifies the unacceptable face of creative journalism which seems to be the specialty of the Al Hajj newspaper”.
