Actor Alex Kofi Adu, popularly known as Agya Koo, has cautioned his critics to refrain from dragging him into tribal politics.
According to him, the 2016 general election should be based on issues devoid of tribalism and insults.
Agya Koo’s comment follows a demonstration staged by some residents of Odumase Krobo in the Eastern Region, demanding from the flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo, his position on tribal comments purported to have been made by Agya Koo against Krobos whilst playing a role in a movie.
The group said Agya Koo described Krobos as people cursed by a dreaded Akuapem fetish priest to forever remain prostitutes.
Speaking at a press conference, Atta Boakye, Agya Koo’s manager, stated that there is no iota of truth in the demonstrators’ claim, adding that Agya Koo is innocent.
Atta Boakye accused the group of dabbling in unnecessary tribal politics which will not help the society to grow.
Agya Koo and other movie stars based in Kumasi declared their support for Nana Akufo-Addo last September ahead of the 2016 election. They launched the ‘Agenda 57% 4 Nana Addo’ to solicit votes for the party.
