Since losing the 2016 general election, the former president has been faced with intense corruption allegations including the DKM scandal. But addressing party functionaries during the recent unity match, John Mahama insists that all such allegations against him are false.

“There is only one gate to heaven, not two but before you can gain entrance you will have to rely on the single truth. I was not brought up to lie because of politics,” Mahama revealed.

The statement by John Mahama follows the establishment of a special prosecutor's office by the president of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.

Lawyer Akoto Ampaw is believed to be a partner of the law firm, Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co whereas Philip Addison was the legal counsel for the NPP during the 2012 election petition.

Meanwhile, the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo, has allayed the fears of political opponents saying the special prosecutor bill will not result in witch-hunting.

The president has stated that the special prosecutor will strictly work with fact and evidence not hearsay.

“Anytime a politician is stigmatized for criminal conduct, the witch-hunting chorus rises from their [the pursuing government’s] political opponents,” Nana Addo stated.
