The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Salaga South Constituency, Hajia Zuwera Ibrahimah has denied writing a story with the caption, “Re: Death in the frying pan: The case of Joyce Bawah in Salaga”. The said story attacks Joyce Bawah Mogtari who is a former aide to NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
In a rebuttal to the said story, she stated that she was busily working at the grassroots level to get the electorate on her side, therefore, she does not have any spare time left to engage in anonymous writings.
In a statement copied to GhanaWeb, the aspiring Member of Parliament for Salaga South Constituency said: “All those who know me and have followed my politics closely know that I do not indulge in this type of politics of anonymous article writing. I focus my energies on working on the ground, engaging the electorate and selling my message and vision to them”.
She indicated that the said story came from one unknown Alidu Seidu.
Efforts to trace the said writer has proved futile.
She advised the general public to disregard and treat with contempt the earlier reportage that attributed the said story to her.
Read the full statement below:
Dear Editor, Dear Editor, I write to react to an article you culled from daily mail.com captioned: Re:Death in the frying pan the case of Joyce Bawah in Salaga.
I had seen an earlier article written by one Alidu Seidu under the same caption and published on northernwebghana.com. I wondered who Alidu Seidu was and what his motivation could be for posting that publication since he claimed to be a member of the NDC in the Salaga South Constituency.
I made some phone calls to ascertain who this Alidu Seidu could be. Unsurprisingly, nobody seems to know him. All those who know me and have followed my politics closely know that I do not indulge in this type of politics of anonymous article writing. I focus my energies on working on the ground, engaging the electorate and selling my message and vision to them.
Given that your outlet merely culled it from Dailymail.com; unless it's a Daily mail desk report, I have decided that I will not react to publications by faceless people. One publication is written by "Alidu Seidu" whom no one seems to know and another by an unknown author. It leaves much to be desired.
