Popular Kumawood actor Agya Koo,has denied media reports which quoted him to have said that parents in Ghana should send their children abroad due to the poor living standards in the country.
While throwing his opinion into the mix on how parents can fully protect their kids based on the recent spate of killings that have engulfed some parts of the country recently, Agya Koo was quoted to have allegedly urged parents to take their children to America.
The veteran actor is said to have said this on Friday, September 3, during a radio discussion on Kumasi-based radio station, Agyenkwa FM.
“Currently, most parents in this country are not comfortable even when their kids go out to play because they fear something might happen to their children. For me, if you are a parent and you have what it takes, send your children to America or other safer countries. The killing and kidnapping are too much in this country,” he is quoted as saying.
However, Agya Koo known in private life as Kofi Adu in a Facebook video has denied the reports. adding that it was part of plans by some persons to incite hatred from his political party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“It hurts when people try to ruin your reputation, they can use just a single day to bring you down. Some online platforms are trying to wrongly accuse me of something I didn’t say. In fact, I can never say that. They claim I have issued a strong warning to parents to send their children abroad. Those circulating the news did not call me to confirm the story.
“I never said that, as we know, they couldn’t even provide a voice or a video of me saying that. Just because I am famous and also close to the NPP, they want to say this to disgrace the party but I want to let them know that this cannot shame the party,” said the actor.
He has asked the public to ignore the publication adding that he is still a staunch supporter of the New Patriotic Party and the Akufo-Addo government.
