Terminal 3 and the Mahama story

The spokesperson for John Mahama, Bawa Mogtari, has urged the Akufo-Addo government must acknowledge John Mahama and stop playing politics with the new Terminal 3 project at the Kotoka International Airport.

According to her, the NPP government has exhibited a “morbid fear” to acknowledge the actual source of the project.

In a statement released ahead of the inauguration of the terminal for use, Madam Mogtari said the current government has deliberately set out to discredit Mahama by peddling lies.
