- The Central Regional NDC chairman has alleged some officials in the new government enjoyed financial benefits from Ibrahim Mahama
- He did not mention names, but claims they now want to denounce him after taking money from him
Bernard Allotey Jacobs, the Central Regional chairman of the National Democratic Congress, has alleged that there are some government officials in New Patriotic Party administration that received financial benefits from Ibrahim Mahama, during their time in opposition.
According to him, there were also some members of parliament who received financial aid from the brother of former president Mahama, which they used to fund their campaigns in their constituencies.
According to a report by Mynewsgh.com, the NDC chairman who refused to name the alleged government beneficiaries, said, “It hurts me that my brother Ben Arye, his party people when the NDC was in power they used to eat from Ibrahim Mahama ….bigwigs in the NPP who are ministers today. They go there to take but today they see him as a demon. They take and go and spread because if they did not take it was not possible for them to visit their constituencies.”
He further called the bluff of the NPP member of parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong who threatened to end his life if Ibrahim Mahama was not thrown in jail.
Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show on Tuesday, Mr Jacobs said, “My friend Kennedy Agyapong said he will poison himself if Ibrahim Mahama is not jailed. In fact, the poison is ready; we will bring it to him live on TV where he made those comments for him to drink because I know Ibrahim Mahama is innocent. God will defend Ibrahim, he will be vindicated.”
Ibrahim Mahama, the brother of former president John Mahama is accused of issuing dud checks to the Ghana Revenue Authority for the payment of duties on his goods at the Tema Port.
He has been ordered to pay GHC 12 million to the Authority or the state will auction off his goods to offset the debts.
