Flagbearer of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) and CEO of Nduom Group of Companies, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has come out to state categorically that he is not involved in the preparations towards this year’s Oguaa Fetu Afahye. This came up after a lot of allegations sprang up claiming he is looking to take over the organisation and sponsorship of the festival through his multimedia companies. Read full statement below;
” I wish to inform the Ghanaian public that I am not involved nor am I connected with preparations towards the 2016 Oguaa Fetu Afahye. I have not met nor held any discussions with the Oguaa Omanhene or the Afahye Planning Committee or anyone even remotely connected with the festival. I do not know the owners of Cape FM or its management and have not been in talks with them with regards to the Orange Friday event.
I am busy minding my own business – Groupe Nduom and Progressive People’s Party campaign. The elders, the youth and everyone in Cape Coast must know that I respect Oguaa culture and traditions. I am from the Oguaa sister town of Edina. Therefore, I will not and cannot do anything to disrupt such an important festival. Also, those who for political reasons want to drag my name into anything potentially negative going on in Cape Coast must cease and desist from such attempts as they will not succeed. I wish the Chiefs and People of the Oguaa Traditional Area an enjoyable and successful Fetu Afahye Festival. Papa Kwesi Nduom 8 August 2016″
