Don’t turn Mahama’s kindness as a weapon against his campaign—NDC reacts to the sharing of money at Bono
Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has denied sharing money to his supporters when he resumed his tour of the Bono Region on Monday.
A statement signed by James Agyenim-Boateng, the spokesperson of the NDC campaign team described the reports as “Malicious, untrue and completely borne out of the desperate and fertile imaginations of the authors”.
The statement noted that the ex-president rather shared the branded “John Mahama 2020 nose masks” and other items to his loyal supporters to secure them from contracting the novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
The statement further urged the public to disregard the attempt to turn the act of kindness of former President Mahama into a weapon against his campaign.
“The said reports are untrue and completely borne out of the desperate and fertile imaginations of the author(s). For the records, and as it has become typical of Mr Mahama on his tour of the regions, he shares JOHN MAHAMA 2020 branded nose masks to people and occasionally talks about how to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease.
This morning was no exception when Mr Mahama shared several hundreds of his campaign’s branded nose masks, aprons and T- shirts,” the statement said.
“The general public is therefore entreated to disregard the piece of fake news and lazy journalism, which unsuccessfully attempts to turn Mr Mahama’s act of kindness into a weapon against his campaign.”
