"I never threatened to kill Mahama" - Sam Okudzeto

With many calling for his immediate prosecution, Sam Okudzeto has come out to deny all allegations that he had earlier threatened to kill Ghana's current president, John Dramani Mahama.

According to the NPP stalwart, his comments on Mahama were misconstrued by the media who "don't know the English Language".

An earlier report had stated that Sam Okudzeto had issued a stern warning to President Mahama, should the former decided to heed to the petitions calling for the release of the jailed Montie FM contemnors.

He is reported to have said that the President would be marking his funeral if he decides to pardon the jailed Montie three, Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase alias ‘Mugabe’.

“If they had called me...I would have taken the time to explain to them,” Sam Okudzeto added to his denial of issuing a threat on the president's life.

Despite this clarification, Mr Okudzeto maintains that President Mahama would be undermining the work of Ghana's judiciary should he give in to the pressure mounting on him to grant the presidential pardon to the three Montie FM contemnors.

The three Montie FM contemnors were jailed for their comments which were seen as direct threats at the Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.
