The Member of Parliament for Assin South, John Ntim Fordjour has rejected claims that he breached COVID-19 safety protocols by gathering his constituents to distribute items to them.
Media reports had suggested that John Ntim Fordjour gave hand sanitizers and veronica buckets to crowded residents of Assin Akrofuom.
The reports had said most of the recipients were not in face masks and did not observe any form of physical distancing while receiving the sanitizers.
A statement signed by the acting NPP Secretary of the Assin South constituency, Elvis Bosomtwe however said those reports were “mischievous propaganda and palpable falsehood in circulation”.
Describing the MP as a “law-abiding citizen”, the statement said Mr. Ntim Fordjour “has not under any circumstance, breached COVID-19 protocols as some faceless persons or entities would want to mislead the public to believe”.
It, therefore, urges the general public “to utterly disregard such falsehood and treat it with the contempt it deserves”.
