Disregard money sharing reports – NDC

The John Mahama 2020 Campaign Team has debunked publications that some money was shared by the party’s flagbearer on Monday.

“The public must disregard the false, misleading and malicious publications claiming that Mr John Dramani Mahama, the Presidential Candidate of the NDC, shared money to his supporters on Monday, when he resumed his tour of the Bono Region,” a statement from the Campaign Team said.     

The statement, issued by James Agyenim-Boateng, the Spokesman of the Team, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the reports were “untrue and completely borne out of the desperate and fertile imaginations of the author(s).”     

“For the records, and as it has become typical of Mr. Mahama, he shared John Mahama 2020 branded nose masks to people and occasionally talked about how to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease.”     

The statement said the exercise on Monday was no exception from when Mr. Mahama shared several hundreds of his campaign branded nose masks, aprons, and T-shirts to his supporters.     

It, therefore, called on the public to disregard the piece of “fake news and lazy journalism,” which unsuccessfully attempted to turn Mr Mahama’s act of kindness into a weapon against his campaign.
