- NPP party Organizer is accusing Ex-President Mahama for pocketing $50m from US before accepting Gitmo 2 into Ghana
- He says the cash went into private bank accounts of NDC top officials including President Mahama
The Brong Ahafo NPP Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe Abronye aka Abronye DC is accusing former President Mahama for trading Ghana’s constitution for cash.
According to him, the NDC administration under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama ignored all constructional requirement and went for a whopping US$million from the United States government to grant the stay of Gitmo two in Ghana.
To him, John Mahama and his cronies must be forced to immediately return the US$million agreement money.
Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby are two Yemenis held as enemy combatants but were cleared for release in 2009.
The two were first Guantanamo prisoners resettled in sub-Saharan Africa and arrived in Ghana in January last year.
Then President, John Mahama told Ghanaians that the two detainees were taken in after a direct request by the US government and did not pose a security threat, though several groups and individual Ghanaians protested their transfer to Ghana since move didn’t get parliamentary approval.
But Abronye DC speaking on the matter alleged that the NDC party received $50 million through a personal account purportedly to take care of the prisoners.
“It was the $50 million that prompted Mahama to receive them. It wasn’t out of mercy. The money didn’t pass through a government accounts. They added fifty million dollars to feed them. It was the money that prompted the NDC to receive them. Ask Hannah Tetteh which bank account they channeled the money through…” he revealed.

He added that, initially, the erstwhile Mahama administration denied claims of any agreement papers on the detainees in favor to hinder parliamentary debates on accepting them in the country.
The NPP organizer insisted that, the incumbent NPP government can’t proceed to cater for the detainees because the funds attached to their detainment have been pocketed by former President Mahama and his ‘corrupt’ officials.
