Former President John Mahama is a “corruption demon”, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has said.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, stated on Wontumi Morning Show that John Mahama has become a demon due to corruption.
The bases for making this claim is because of the airbus scandal which has destroyed Ghana’s name internationally.
“Mahama is wearing a corruption demon belt. He is the King of corruption”, Chairman Wontumi stated.
As reported by the Sun newspaper, John Dramani Mahama is accused of having links to a corrupt network which received kickbacks.
Ghana’s special prosecutor Martin Amidu launched a formal investigation in February and he announced he had summoned four people and released their passport details online.
In January, Airbus agreed to pay a £3billion fine after the UK, US and French authorities launched a joint investigation into the use of middlemen to sell planes.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor issued a public notice saying the four “are hereby invited to assist the on-going investigation of bribery and corruption” totalling more than 5million euros.
The investigation also includes “collaborating with Ghanaian public officers to use their public office for private profit or benefit in the purchase of three C-295 aircraft by the Government of Ghana from Airbus”.
