Ambassador Daniel Ohene Agyekum, Campaign Manager for former President John Dramani Mahama’s campaign , says the team is not disturbed by the debate and subsequent suit on the eligibility its candidate.
One Stephen Agyeman has sued former President John Dramani Mahama’s for trying to contest in the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) presidential primary scheduled for February 23, 2019.
Stephen Agyeman argues that Mahama’s re-election move violates the 1992 Constitution and he is, thus asking the court to stop the former president from contesting in the NDC’s presidential primary.
However, Ambassador Daniel Ohene Agyekum, who spoke to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive said the suit is a confirmation that their candidate, John Dramani Mahama, name sends shivers down the spines of his critics. He noted that Mr Mahama is eligible to contest the NDC primary
“This is part of a general attempt by the NPP and their elements to throw dust into the eyes of delegates to prevent them from voting for him on 23rd February, but we are on top of our game and we will win”, he noted.
Also speaking on Mahama’s meeting with diplomats where he reportedly showed them videos of the disturbances at the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, Ambassador Daniel Ohene Agyekum stated that John Mahama didn't invite diplomats.
He noted that the diplomats expressed interest in meeting the former President and that there is no need to apologise for telling them what really happened.
“This diplomat had intelligence on the ground and they already knew what happened there, they only needed confirmation”, he said.
