-Winneba Zongo Chief Declares And Says “Farakan Does Not Speak For Me”

Contrary to speculations in some media outlets that the Member of Parliament(MP) for Effutu, Hon. Alexander Afenyo Markin was the one who wrote a reprimand letter purported at the time to have been authored by the Winneba Zongo Chief, Alhaji Saliki Sulemana Salaga, the latter has finally cleared the air.

At a press conference held at his Zongo Palace on Friday, Alhaji Sulemana Salaga denied knowledge of one Abdulai Ishak Farakan, who, held a press conference some few days ago in his name and posted on social media, alleging that, a letter which was actually written by him (Alhaji Salaga) was rather written by the MP for Effutu, Hon. Markin.

The press conference was attended by some journalists from the Central Region, and some Moslem leaders in the Winneba Zongo community.

Among others, the purpose of the press conference was for Alhaji Sulemana Salaga to indicate that, he actually wrote the letter, which he wrote to reprimand Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni, Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, which letter was purported to have been written by Hon. Afenyo Markin.

Addressing the media at the press conference, Alhaji Saliki Sulemana Salaga said, it is not true that, Hon. Afenyo Markin has forged his signature and that, he personally wrote that letter to express his displeasure against the behavior and attitude of the UEW VC towards the MP for Effutu.

He also expressed his outrage over the manner in which one Salifu Bawa was posting falsehoods on social media against Hon. Afenyo Markin.

According to Alhaji Sulemana Salaga, he never gave one Ishak Farakan, the mandate and authority to hold any press conference on his behalf, adding that, “I don’t know him from anywhere.”

The Winneba Zongo Chief also cautioned one Kofi Annan, who operates a radio station in Winneba, to desist from using his name in his radio programmes in an attempt to tarnish the image of the Effutu MP.

According to Alhaji Sulemana Salaga, he is privy to the manner in which some constituencies in the country wished they had an MP in the caliber of Hon. Afenyo Markin, who is a performer and called on all to ignore the propaganda war being waged against such a hard working MP.

Alahji Sulemana Salaga and the other Zongo Chiefs at the press conference took turns to shower praises on Hon. Afenyo Markin for sponsoring twenty four Moslems from the Winneba Zongo community to Mecca this year.
