I’ve not asked for the return of bauxite concessions for my brother-Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has refuted reports that he is demanding President Akufo-Addo returns his brother’s bauxite concession before he concedes to the 2020 polls.

In a statement Thursday signed by Felix Kwakye Ofosu, he explained that the 2020 NDC flagbearer has never made such a demand.

He described the report as “nothing but a figment of the imagination” of those making the claims.

RE- MAHAMA WANTS IBRAHIM BAUXITE BACK
A report in the Thursday, April 08, 2021 edition of the Daily Guide Newspaper, which claims that former President John Dramani Mahama is demanding the return of a bauxite concession to his brother before he will ‘gel’ with the sitting president, is nothing but a figment of the imagination of the editor and his so-called sources.

President Mahama in the aftermath of the Supreme Court judgment on his petition indicated that even though he disagrees with the Court, he was nonetheless bound by the verdict.

What form of ‘gel’ does the government want with President Mahama, and for which reason, he will even consider making any demands?

President Mahama has remained the statesman that he is and has remained true to his commitments to multiparty democracy. He continues to have respect for the constitutional structures and has at no time made any request, nor suggested any conditions, let alone ask for the return of bauxite concessions by any person or entity as precondition for cooperation with the President.
