Government is getting more and more revelations about questionable activities and allegations involving former President John Mahama, New Patriotic Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong has claimed.
According to the outspoken MP, the 2020 elections is a done deal for President Akufo-Addo because of the new information they are receiving. He said the decision by NDC members to vote for John Mahama again was a mistake.
“The mistake the NDC made is bringing Mahama again. Because the information that is coming is too much, in fact, it is ugly. I support the groups calling for Mahama to speak up. I agree with them. It will create big problem for them. Let me confess, Mahama coming again makes it easier for Akufo-Addo to win and win again. What you’re seeing is a tip of the iceberg… We have a lot to say about Mahama.” MyNewsGh.com transcribed Kennedy Agyapong’s words on Net2 TV.
“If they had brought a new person, NDC will have worried us. But for Mahama, IC Quaye … Agbenaaa!!! … We will tie him to his mistakes” Kennedy added.
He rubbished claims that Mahama has learnt lessons from his time in power to his 2016 defeat.
“He is failure for saying he only learning lessons after sitting at home for three years. Tell that to the dogs.”
His comments come even after Ghanaians, including MPs, struggle to know the real identity of Government Official 1 in the Airbus saga.
Parliament on Friday declined a request to set up a committee to investigate a request by Rev John Ntim Fordjour, MP for Assin South, to probe the Airbus bribery scandal.
Airbus, an European aircraft manufacturer, is alleged to have paid bribes to some government officials of Ghana when it sold three military aircraft, in 2011 and 2015, and Rev Fordjour, in a statement to the House, said the scandal discredited the name of Ghana.
However, there was an application thereafter, by Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah to the Speaker to stay contributions, and rather allow the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP), on the request of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to proceed with the probe into the Airbus bribery scandal.
