MAHAMA ‘WEEPS’ OVER AFRICAWATCH STORY

Politics

Former President John Dramani Mahama, known for taunting political opponents, is in tantrums over reports in the media about his alleged dalliance with AfricaWatch Publisher Steve Malory.

Former President John Dramani Mahama, known for taunting political opponents, is in tantrums over reports in the media about his alleged dalliance with AfricaWatch Publisher Steve Malory.

 

In a statement to the media from his office signed by Special Aide Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the weepy former President swears to the highest heavens that he has never known Steve Malory or sponsored his paper, the AfricaWatch.

Drawing the Ministry of Education into the fire for no reason, he blamed President Nana Akufo-Addo for the story, saying he and Nana are in the same boat, each doing his bit in improving education, even if they were on different wavelengths.

According to Mr Mahama, recently under fire from his own party people for messing up in 2016 elections and for which reason party bigwigs think he should step aside, the former President said in reaction: “Neither President John Mahama nor his office has any interest in or working relationship with the AfricaWatch Magazine...” and that he, President Mahama “holds the enviable record as a Ghanaian leader who has done more to broaden the frontiers of SHS education than many before him.”

Though the evidence does not exist anywhere, he claims to be, “like most Ghanaians, concerned about the horrible conditions under which SHS students are living and studying…”

Long after he had left office, John Mahama now calls for a National Stakeholders Dialogue to chart a better and befitting way forward for quality education.

The master of ethnicity twists and smear campaigns cites political motive on the part of the media for the publication that appeared in two leading, very popular independent papers with decent circulation and readership and ended by calling on the media to demand accountability from politicians.
