The campaign team of former President John Mahama has described a news publication claiming he had doled out money to the party’s regional chairmen and remitted money through them to constituency chairmen, as “false, malicious and a figment of the writer’s own imagination.”
A statement signed by the spokesperson for the campaign team, James Agyenim-Boateng said: “That bundle of falsehood published by the Daily Guide is deliberately intended to create disaffection for Mr Mahama’s campaign as well as sow discord among NDC delegates ahead of Saturday’s flag bearer elections.
“We are, therefore, urging the general public and, in particular, delegates, members and supporters of the NDC to disregard that publication and treat the fake news publishers with the contempt that they deserve.”
Mr Mahama is facing six other contestants for the NDC’s flag bearer election scheduled for 23 February 2019.
They include Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Mr Alban Bagbin, Mr Goodie Tanoh, Prof Joshua Alabi, Mr Nurudeen Iddrisu and Mr Sylvester Mensah.
