This was revealed at a news conference in Accra on Friday, December 4, 2020, by the NPP.
Addressing the presser, the deputy campaign manager of the NPP, Mustapha Abdul Hamid, said Ghana was singled out in the scandal because of the “impunity linked to Mahama’s determination to continue cashing in on bribes in the face of international exposure.
