Former President John Dramani Mahama, when he was the country’s head of state, vehemently denied selling state land intended for the police and military to his brother.
The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) swore with the Holy Writings at a campaign rally on Friday, December 4 that he had never done such a thing while he was the president of Ghana.
He claimed that if the present government had any intention of selling those lands to officials of the administration, they could not as a way of achieving their goal, hide under the shield of falsehoods against him.
“We gave the land title to the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund, which is an institution of the state,” he explained.
They wanted to construct new police and military barracks and offices and they also wanted to build a new site to expand the airport town. That’s the software I knew it was.
“I never sold my brother any state property, as they say. In the Bible, I swear that I have never done that. If they want to sell it to each other instead they should tell us.
