The presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has reacted to allegations that he owns hotels in Dubai.
Mahama has fearlessly denied running a hotel business in the Asian country.
According to the former president, it is one of the many false allegations leveled against him by the NPP.
"They said I built hotels in Dubai, I have ships in Tokyo, they said DKM was mine. If I have hotels in Dubai, I dare them to go and look for it, sell it and come and invest the money in Ghana's economy," he said.
In addressing the party followers in Accra, he said the NPP has not been able to provide any evidence against him, as all the claims are false and merely aimed at tarnishing his image.
"My brother was doing the project free of charge, he never charged a pesewa but you had leading figures of the NPP saying I gave the contract worth GH¢200 million," he added.
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sacked CEO of the of Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
The sacking of Boateng Adjei was announced in a letter from the presidency on Friday, October 30, 2020.
In the letter signed by Eugene Arhin, the Director of Communications at the presidency, the sacking is a result of investigations into the Adjei's conducts the CEO of PPA.
It will be recalled that investigative journalist that Manasseh Azure Awuni in 2019 released a documentary which exposed Adjei as the co-owner of a company which had been selling government contracts it got through single-source and restrictive tendering.
Follwoing the Azure's documentary, President Akufo-Addo suspended Adjei on August 22, 2019, and referred the matter to the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and the Office of the Special Prosecutor.
It is after the submission of CHRAJ's report that Akufo-Addo has decided to sack the embattled CEO.
