- The Spokesperson for Abbossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers, Joseph Paddy, has debunked earlier claims that the association had apologized to former president Mahama
- He said the association owed no apology to the former president
- This is in contrary to earlier claims by the PRO for the association, Takyi Addo, who made the apology
The Spokesperson for the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers, Mr Joseph Paddy, has debunked reports that the association had apologized to former president Mahama.
Joseph Paddy, who also doubles as the public relations officer (PRO) of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), has said they owed no apologies to Mahama, therefore, the reports should be disregarded.
This was gathered by YEN.com.gh in a report by Pulsegh.com.
Joseph Paddy was reacting to earlier reports that the PRO of the Spare Parts Dealers Association, Takyi Addo, had apologized to Mahama for attacking, and calling him names in during the electioneering period of 2016.
In the report, Takyi Addo confessed to have treated the former president unfairly all because they wanted to boot him out of power to make way for Akufo-Addo and the NPP.
However, with the current hardship they are experiencing under Akufo-Addo, they deemed it fit to apologize to Mahama for the insults they hurled at him.
Takyi Addo was quoted to have said: "As a personal apology, wherever Mahama is, he should forgive us. I want him to also forgive me personally. We insulted him… we embarrassed him. We called him a thief, incompetent and all sort of names. We thought this one (Nana Addo) was coming to help us, but he is rather finishing us!"
However, Paddy said those reports were just propagandist with evil intent and will, therefore, want to categorically state that, they (spare parts dealers) have never apologized to the former president and see no reason why they owe him an apology.
Mr Paddy revealed that the group calling itself Concerned Spare Parts Dealers Association does not represent, and is not the official association of the Spare Parts Dealers, therefore, must not be taken seriously.
According to him, the group is a politically motivated society seeking to do the bidding of the opposition NDC Party.
Paddy further said they (the original spare parts dealers) are not experiencing any hardship as purported by the “fake” spare parts dealers association.
“For us as traders and importers we know government has not increased import duties, at least, since last year. There are obviously issues at the ports but it goes beyond government policy. There are individuals at the ports and customs officials who must be dealt with so that the good policies by government can yield the right results,” he claimed.
