Former President John Mahama has rubbished reports that he is demanding President Akufo-Addo returns his brother’s bauxite concession before he gets along with him.
A report in Daily Guide’s newspaper Wednesday, April 7 edition said that the NDC 2020 flagbearer is demanding President Akufo-Addo returns his brother’s bauxite concession before he gets along with him.
However, a statement Thursday signed by Felix Kwakye Ofosu, he explained that Mr Mahama has never made such a demand.
Mr Kwakye Ofosu said the reports are “nothing but a figment of the imagination” of those making the claims.
“[Former] President Mahama in the aftermath of the Supreme Court judgement 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 [former] President Mahama, and for which reason, he will even consider making any demands?” the former Deputy Communications Minister quizzed.
“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 a precondition for cooperation with the President.”
