The President of the Volta Regional Surveyors Association of Ghana, Surveyor Maxwell Kwame Lukutor has debunked allegations that, his outfit is engineering political agenda setting against some individuals in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region in the run up to the December 2020 polls.
The 2019 National Democratic Congress parliamentary aspirant for the South Tongu who lost narrowly to the incumbent Member of Parliament Honourable Wisdom Kobena Mensah Woyome said, his office has planned nothing negative against his contender neither is he engineering any diabolic political agenda against any individual who believes in the NDC agenda to win the December 2020 polls for the flagbearer Mr. John Dramani Mahama and the MP for the South Tongu Constituency.
Surveyor Maxwell Kwame Lukutor in a statement intercepted by Coverghana.com.gh wishes to use this medium to categorically state that, he has no hand in whatever theory anyone either close to him or a distant admirer and a supporter propounds, but remains true to his party, the NDC and call on those using his name wrongly for their parochial interest to desist forthwith.
“It is a common knowledge that I, Maxwell Kwame Lukutor, contested in the last NDC Parliamentary Primaries and lost narrowly to the incumbent. I conceded defeat, gave him a phone call and widely circulated a congratulatory message to him.” He said.
“Subsequently, there were some meetings between us at different levels, organised by different people all in the bid to broker peace. I made my position clear that it was a contest and anyone of us could win hence I habour no ill feelings against him and I am ready to work for our beloved party, the NDC, at whichever level the party deems fit.” Maxwell Lukutor disclosed.
He further noted that, “Fast forward and getting close to the election, some unfortunate stories started playing out and people, for whatever political reasons, started attaching my name to those issues. A particular one of mention is voting ‘skirt and blouse’ in the South Tongu Constituency.”
“I wish to use this medium to categorically state that I have no hand in whatever theory anyone either close to me or a distant admirer and a supporter propounds. I remain true to my party, the NDC and call on those using my name wrongly for their parochial interest to desist forthwith. I am not part of any agenda setting in the constituency and will never be part. I hold dear the principles and beliefs in democracy.” He disclaimed.
