The Office of the Vice President has quickly reacted to online publications claiming that Mr. Amissah-Arthur visit to Eastern Region sparked the chieftaincy dispute which left eight people injured on Monday.

A statement issued by a Presidential Staffer, James Agyenim-Boateng, on behalf of the Veep, described the publications as unfounded and without merit.

RE: EIGHT INJURED IN SUHYEN CHIEFTAINCY CLASHES

The Office of the Vice President has noted with dismay a number of online publications, with the above headline, claiming that a chieftaincy dispute has recurred in Suhyen, near Koforidua in the Eastern Region, following a visit by the Vice President to the town on Saturday.

The said publications are unfounded and without merit, especially as Mr K.B. Amissah-Arthur did not visit or call on any chief (as claimed by the publications) in Suhyen when he inspected the community’s involvement in the National Sanitation Day exercise, which came off in the Eastern Region last Saturday.

We therefore wish to correct the erroneous publications and urge the general public to disregard same.
