Former President John Dramani Mahama says his teenage daughter, Farida Dramani Mahama, does not have a Facebook or Instagram account.

In a statement from the office of the NDC 2020 flagbearer signed by his Special Aide, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, he said the girl who recently celebrated her 14th birthday, “does not have a Facebook account, neither has she or her parents sanctioned the creation of a Facebook Group in her name.”

My daughter Farida has no Facebook or Instagram account - Mahama

Mr Mahama said, “While steps have been taken to officially notify Facebook of the fake accounts in her name, the public is hereby advised to kindly disregard all pages and groups posting and making comments under posts as Farida Mahama.”

He added, “An Instagram page set up by the same scammers in the name of Farida, @farida_mahama_ is also fake.”

Mr Mahama warned the general public “to desist from any engagements with the said account believing that it is Farida Dramani Mahama.”
