- The NDC and the former president have dismissed reports that they received campaign contributions from persons linked to embattled GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi
- John Mahama has accused the Multimedia Group for peddling falsehood
Former president John Dramani Mahama has blasted the Multimedia Group over what he describes as allowing itself to be used for "political propaganda".
On Tuesday, Joy FM, a subsidiary of the Multimedia Group, reported that embattled Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi wrote in his statement to the CID that he funded Mahama and the NDC's 2016 election campaign with an amount of $8million.
The report claimed that the media house actually sighted the statement by the GFA boss, bringing the name of Mahama into the spotlight ahead of the premier of Anas' Exposé titled 'Number 12'.
However, responding to the reports, a furious Mahama took to Facebook to berate the Multimedia Group.
According to him, it is disgraceful that the media organization has allowed itself to be used for political propaganda.
He wrote: "Over the years people fought & in some cases paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy today. When a supposedly respected media house like Multimedia allows itself to be used for political propaganda, it besmirches our common honour & the sacrifices we’ve made as a people."
Meanwhile, the NDC as a party has also denied ever receiving funds from Nyantakyi during the 2016 elections.
