The Office of former President John Dramani Mahama has denied allegations by the NPP’s Bono Regional Chairman, Kwame Baffoe (Abronye), that he took home some GHS 14 million as ex-gratia in 2013.
The 2020 Presidential Candidate for the NDC has therefore urged the general public to ignore such unintelligent rants of the NPP man who had gained notoriety for fabricating and propagating falsehood on behalf of Nana Akufo-Addo against John Mahama.
The statement signed by Joyce Bawa Mogtari, a Special aide to Mr Mahama emphasised that ”former President never took any such ex-gratia payment of GHc 14m in 2013 or at any other time during his 25 years of distinguished public service.”
Clearing all doubts, Mrs Mogtari stated, “fortunately, ex-gratia payments are a matter of public record and are available in the office of the Chief of Staff or the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.”
“We challenge the office of the Chief of Staff and the Presidency to provide proof of the payment of any such amount and stop using idle miscreants among its ranks to spread falsehood,” the statement urged.
