Former president John Dramani Mahama is spending a colossal 50 Million Ghana Cedis to be elected the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), according to the Brong Ahafo Regional Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, otherwise known as Abronye DC.
According to him, the former president is engaged in deception to conceal the fact that he has a lot of money and lavishing same on his campaign.
‘’For a man that claims he is poor and that it is his wife that is taking care of him at the moment, can he tell Ghanaians how he got the 50 Million Ghana Cedis to campaign in just presidential primaries? This is not the main election, how is that?’’ he said on Accra based Oman Fm.
Abronye DC said Mr. Mahama spent a whopping 4.5 Million Ghana Cedis during his recent campaign tour of the Western Region, noting that each constituency officer in the region was given 3,500 Ghana cedis.
‘’Even the NDC kingpins themselves attest and allude to the fact that Mr. Mahama has a lot of money. Where did he get the money from? And this is someone who claims he can’t even afford to feed his family and that he is surviving on the benevolence of his wife, Lordina. He is dariga’’ he added.
He added that the former president is bent on returning to power just to amass more wealth through stealing and looting of public money.
