Deputy Majority Leader Adwoa Safo has denied asking President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to purchase Kantanka SUVs produced locally by her father Apostle Kwadwo Safo.
According to her, the publication by Ghanaweb.com with the headline 'Adwoa Sarfo challenges President to buy her father's vehicles' and attributing the story to her official Facebook account is false.
“I would like to state that I have never authored those words on the said Facebook page which the writer claims to be my official page,” she stated in a statement.
According to the Dome/Kwabenya lawmaker, the said official Facebook page bearing the name ‘Adwoa Sarfo Kantanka’ and several others created in her name are fake and do not represent her. “I do not bear the name Kantanka. Besides, my name ‘Safo’ is not spelt with an 'r' [Sarfo] as depicted by the impersonator,” she clarified.
She noted that she had taken steps to report those pages to the appropriate authorities and entreated all media practitioners to double check their facts from her office before publishing any story about her.
The legislator also warned people impersonating and using her name on social media to “immediately put a stop to it” as she would not hesitate to institute a court action against anyone caught impersonating her.
