THE ASHANTI Regional National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described as false, reports that the party’s chairman at Ahafo Ano North Constituency, Samuel Awuni, who was stabbed last Sunday evening, has passed away.

Raymond Tandoh, the Ashanti Regional Secretary, told DAILY GUIDE during an interview that Samuel Awuni was alive and that the rumours about his death were untrue.

Reports of Samuel Awuni’s death went viral on social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook early Friday morning.

Mr Awuni was allegedly stabbed in the head and the face with a sharp knife by Adams Alhassan, the party’s constituency treasurer, when the two men engaged in a fisticuff over control of a party car.

The reports indicated that he passed on early Friday morning following the severe wounds he sustained when the treasurer stabbed him twice with a sharp knife in public.

The rumour mill also had it that the leadership of the NDC in the Ashanti Region was aware of the death of Mr Awuni but they wanted to keep the shocking issue secret for obvious reasons.

But in a sharp rebuttal, Raymond Tandoh stated that there was no iota of truth in the wild reports, pointing out that Mr Awuni was alive so the NDC members should not believe the wild reports making the rounds.

According to him, Mr Awuni is no longer on admission at the hospital because there has been significant improvement in his condition. Raymond Tandoh said Mr Awuni has been visiting the hospital on a daily basis to nurse the wounds on his head, saying, “Interestingly, when reports emerged that he had died, he was at the hospital nursing his wounds.”

The NDC scribe stated that he was shocked to the marrow when news started to spread about Mr Awuni’s death on Friday morning, adding, “so I sent people to Tepa who confirmed that Mr Awuni was alive.”
