Mahama distances self from March 18 programme
Former President John Dramani Mahama has denied knowledge of any event on Saturday, March 18 “intended to celebrate him”.
According to a statement issued by his Special Aide, Joyce Mogtari, on Sunday, the immediate past president has not been informed of, neither invited to, any such programme. There was a social media artwork inviting persons to be at the Kawukudi Park in Accra to join in celebrating Mr Mahama.
Patrons were asked to be in National Democratic Congress (NDC) colours. But the statement said “he has not provided any form of endorsement for the programme”.
Former President Mahama, however, expressed appreciation for the “kind thoughts of the initiators of the said event”.
