Former president John Dramani Mahama has dismissed the content on the the alleged Ofosu-Ampofo leaked tape.
According to the flag bearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), the governing NPP is only playing propaganda with the leaked tape saga.
He also accused the NPP government of spying on its opponents to occupy time since it is doing nothing.

Speaking to party members after a Victory Health Walk on Saturday, March 2, 2019, Mr Mahama told the NDC supporters gathered that: “Our opponents are good at propaganda and they will come up from time to time with things to distract us. This issue of a tape is just a distraction. Dismiss it with the contempt it deserves. Let us focus. Our message must be to the Ghanaian people.”
“Let us tell the Ghanaian people what we can do for them and cease the endless arguments with the NPP. It is only a government that has too much time on its hands because it is not working that will have time to go and bug the office of its opponents.”
“We do not have time for that. Let us focus our message and tell Ghanaians what we can do for them. We already have a track record. We have governed this country before and, so, let us focus on the things we can do for Ghanaians to make their lives better and not be distracted by the shenanigans of the NPP party.”
On his part, the man at the center of the controversy, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo told the NDC supports that he is a man of peace and that the NPP cannot sleep because he is the party’s national chairman.
“I want to assure all Ghanaians that the NDC will not kill women to win power, the NDC will not kidnap people to win power, the NDC will not insult to win the power, the NDC will bring a message of hope to Ghanaians,” Mr Ofosu-Ampofo noted.
“I want to assure you that the NDC Chairman has not run away from anybody. When we finish thanking God on Sunday, on Monday, our lawyers have informed the CID that the National Chairman of the NDC will come to the CID headquarters to answer any questions that they want. By eight O’clock, we are there and, so, I want to assure them that the peaceful Chairman, the peaceful party will respond to their call even though they first invited us through WhatsApp,” he added.
The Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service has invited Mr Ofosu-Ampofo for questioning over the matter.
