I’ve not privately or publicly endorsed Bagbin; ‘I can’t dump Mahama’ - Julius Debrah

Former Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, says news circulating that he has endorsed and will support Second Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin against former President John Dramani Mahama ahead of NDC presidential primaries are ‘fallacious.

He stated emphatically in a communiqué copied to Peacefmonline.com that he has not “privately or publicly made any statements to suggest my support or endorsement of Mr. Bagbin”.

Julius explained that “It is unfortunate that a last-minute request by Mr. Bagbin after the one-week commemoration of my late mother to visit will be deliberately twisted for seeming political gain. He was warmly received just like all other dignitaries who came to mourn with my family”.

Re-Julius Debrah dumbs Mahama for Bagbin

My attention has been drawn to news reports of my supposed endorsement of Mr. Alban Bagbin to lead our great party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Let me state emphatically that, I, Julius Debrah, have at no time, either privately or publicly made any statements to suggest my support or endorsement of Mr. Bagbin.

It is unfortunate that a last-minute request by Mr. Bagbin after the one-week commemoration of my late mother to visit will be deliberately twisted for seeming political gain. He was warmly received just like all other dignitaries who came to mourn with my family.

The news reports are false, and I wish to humbly urge all members and well-wishers of the NDC who have called expressing concern and surprise to kindly ignore the said reports.

Signed
