I’ve Not Promised SHS Students Gari, Allowances – John Mahama

Former President John Mahama has debunked reports making rounds that he has promised to pay students of Senior High Schools monthly allowances and also provide them with gari when voted into power in the 2020 general elections.

It is said that Mr Mahama made those assertions in the Volta Region when he met some students.

But according to his spokesperson “the report is fake and a figment of the
writer’s imagination.”

“Please disregard the bizarre, outrageous and ridiculous publication and treat it with the
contempt that it deserves. It is fake news,” Mr James Agyenim Boateng said in a statement on Tuesday, January 8,2019.

“For the records, Mr Mahama is on a five-day campaign tour in the Western Region. Whilst on  this campaign, he has been meeting with delegates and supporters of the NDC,” the spokesperson said while rubbishing the claim.

Below is the statement.

Our attention has been drawn to an online publication on the subject matter above.
The report claims that former President John Dramani Mahama spoke to students in the Volta  Region on the said subject matter.

For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that the report is fake and a figment of the
writer’s imagination. It is a matter of public knowledge that Mr Mahama has yet to visit the
Volta Region to campaign there ahead of the flagbearership election of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). It is also not true that Mr Mahama has visited the Volta Region to speak to  students there.

Please disregard the bizarre, outrageous and ridiculous publication and treat it with the
contempt that it deserves. It is fake news.

For the records, Mr Mahama is on a five-day campaign tour in the Western Region. Whilst on  this campaign, he has been meeting with delegates and supporters of the NDC.

He has been speaking mainly on issues affecting cocoa farmers, small scale miners, jobs, the high cost of living in the country, his development agenda for the NDC, plans to better
implement Free SHS as well as his determination and commitment to eliminate the chaotic
double track system in secondary education.
