- Recent leaks of the Kwesi Botchwey report claims Mahama lost due to some officials in his administration
- Stan Dogbe and Dr. Omane Boamah are claimed to have lied to Mahama about his chances of winning the Ashanti region
Portions of the leaked Kwesi Botchwey report is claiming that the two main government officials under the erstwhile Mahama administration who caused the defeat of the opposition party were former communications minister, Omane Boamah and presidential staffer, Stan Dogbe.
The document, intercepted by Joy FM, has claimed that "doing away with Omane Boamah and Stan Dogbe could have earned the president one million votes so he didn't have to look to Ashanti region".
According to the leaked document, both government officials had lied to John Mahama that he would easily win the Ashanti region in the 2016 elections and that he would need to focus less in that stronghold of the NPP.
Earlier versions of the leaked report had indicated how Stan Dogbe remained an impediment to the Mahama’s victory following harsh and unfair treatment of the presidential press corps.
YEN.com.gh has already revealed the various secrets contained in the intercepted report which includes how the NDC failed to cater for hundreds of polling agents across the country during the knife-edged elections.
So far, the NDC has fiercely condemned publications making the rounds from some media regarding the leaked report as top executives of the party maintain that the Kwesi Botchwey report is never for public consumption.
Also, former president Mahama has taken a dig at persons disseminating contents of the said document.
