Renowned news anchor and television personality, Gifty Anti, has broken her silence after years of speculations that she dated former President John Agyekum Kufuor while he was in office.
In a bare-it-all interview on Personality Profile on Drive Time on Joy FM with Kwabena Anokye Adisi (Bola Ray) Thursday, Gifty said the rumours were wicked lies designed to tarnish her image and of the sitting president at the time.
She stressed that even though she was close to the former president, who ruled the country from 2001 to 2008, they “never” dated.
“I have been close to the family. I’ve been close to him, he treats me like his friend, his daughter,” but there was nothing, she stated.
The StandPoint host said that contrary to the wild rumours that she had a frosty relationship with Mr. Kufuor’s wife, Theresa Kufuor, “she is like a mother [to me]”.
The former president’s wife, she noted, even paid her a surprise visit while she was celebating her 40th birthday with some orphans from the Village of Hope, at the Afrikiko Gardens in 2010.
“She cut the cake with the children and they were so excited. That is how much that woman has shown me love,” the television personality recounted.
