The Office of HE John Dramani Mahama has asked Ghanaians to treat with contempt the publication that has referred to the former leader as the fourth richest person in Ghana and worth around $900 million.
A statement issued by his office described the publication as false and baseless.
“Mr. Mahama vehemently denies the claims, which he considers yet another attempt to discredit his reputation, cause disaffection for him, and undermine his leadership of selfless service.”
The statement signed by Joyce Bawa Mogtari aide to Mr. Mahama said the publication was orchestrated by his opponents to malign him.
“These malicious false publications from obvious political opponents will be expected as Ghana approaches the 2024 general elections, an election John Mahama will win.
It is obvious that this publication is part of a deliberate and discredited strategy by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to spread lies and seek to generate public disaffection for the leader and flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC)— a man in whom many Ghanaians have expressed their confidence and are looking forward to his visionary leadership from January 07, 2025.”
We urge Ghanaians to disregard this false claim and any similar future publications. Instead, we encourage the public to focus on holding the non- performing NPP government accountable for its gross mismanagement of the economy and dissipation of state resources,” the statement added.
