However, the Office of the former President believes the Commission has not been fair to Mr. Kufuor. “You called the Land Valuation Board for their side of the story, but you failed to invite President Kufuor or any of his ministers for their side of the story,” his spokesperson said.
The Spokesperson for the former President, Frank Agyekum, told Atinka AM Drive host, Kwame Adinkra, that the action of the Commission gives a wrong impression about President Kufuor.
Mr. Agyekum said the office had taken the matter up and it is investigating whether the said compensation was paid or not, adding, “we will give full statement after the investigation because as we speak, the Commission has not given us the report.”
He said the Commission could have invited the Attorney General at the time for clarifications.
According to Mr Agyekum, the Former president is unhappy about the fact that the Commission failed to invite him, but went ahead to make findings on the matter, adding “it’s not fair to say President Kufour did the payment by himself because he worked with a technical team”.
