Incumbent National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has denied assertions of him being anti-Mahama.
The re-election candidate stated that no amount of lies or propaganda could detract from his exceptional relationship and loyalty to former President John Dramani.
“I am not anti -John Mahama. I am one person who has worked with John Mahama ever since I became the national Organizer of this party in 2002. We went to an election in 2008 in which the late Prof.Mills won power. At that time I was leading his campaign team when he was a running mate. Ever since I became Regional Minister I worked with him. I worked with him when I became the local government minister. When I was National Organizer, President Mahama was Director of communication of the party which I worked with him”.
“I have been loyal to President Mahama and continue to be loyal to him. And I want to state that if our delegates endorse him or vote for him which I know is a possibility and likely scenario, I will give him my 200% support. I will work for him 24 hours to ensure that he wins the next elections and form the next government to bring policies to rescue this country into reality”
Samuel Ofosu Ampofo also denied claims that dismissed former party members such as Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs are on his campaign team.
“For the records, I am National Chairman, I presided over the meeting where we took the decision to dismiss Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs. I will be the last person to undermine my own party. Those spreading rumour that Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs are members of my Campaign team, I want to categorically state that it is just mere propaganda and it will fail. It is a figment of their own imagination. Under no circumstance will I bring persons dismissed by the party, who are not even delegates to become campaign team members”.
“I don’t lack people who will campaign for me who are bonafide members of the NDC. So those contesting me should come and tell us what they will do when they become national chairman and others. They should not hide behind people to say that Koku Anyidoho, Yaw Boateng Gyan, Dela Coffie, and Allotey Jacobs are regular panel members of Ahotor FM which is a radio station that belongs to me. None of them has been a panelist on my radio station before. So I want to use this medium to dismiss that propaganda being festered …and if they have nothing to say they should throw in the towel and withdraw from the race because I want to assure you that I will win this election and I will win it hands down, and I will lead the NDC to power “.
