Former President John Dramani Mahama has described as "outrageous lies and propaganda" claims by outspoken Communicator of the New Patriotic Party (NP
Former President John Dramani Mahama has described as “outrageous lies and propaganda” claims by outspoken Communicator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe Abronye DC suggesting he [Mahama] has rented an apartment for Joyce Dzidzor Mensah in Germany.
Reports indicate the Brong Ahafo Regional Vice Chairman of the NPP, alleged on Accra-based Net 2 TV Wednesday, March 27, 2019 that the 2020 Flagbearer of the NDC has rented an apartment for the controversial former AIDS Ambassador to escape arrest from the Ghana Police Service.
Abronye DC had earlier petitioned the CID to arrest, interrogate and prosecute Joyce Mensah on the charges of fraud and deceit.
In his petition to the CID, he said, “Joyce Dzidzor Mensah subsequently succeeded in deceiving the Ghana AIDs Commission and on or about August 2011, she signed a contract with the commission as an AIDs Ambassador. However, the contract was subsequently terminated by the commission on or about November 12, 2012, on the grounds of breach of her terms of the contract”.
His petition follows a declaration by Joyce Dzidzor that she was free from the HIV/AIDS virus.
Speaking on Net2 TV Abronye DC is quoted in reports accusing former President Mahama of helping the “criminal” to avoid being jailed for her crimes.
He alleged that “Immediately after my petition, John Mahama rented an apartment for Joyce Dzidzor in Germany so as to avoid her arrest. John Mahama did that because, if Joyce Dzidzor is arrested, her wife Lordina Mahama would be in trouble and will be exposed for her bad deeds.”
But reacting to the publication, former President Mahama urged the general public to disregard the false claim and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
“The Office of Former President John Dramani Mahama has noted another false news in which President Akufo Addo’s ventriloquist, Kwame Baffoe (Abronye DC), is caught lying that the former President has rented an apartment for one Joyce Mensah in Germany. For emphasis, this news is false and must be treated with utmost contempt,” a statement signed by Mahama’s spokesperson, Joyce Bawah Mogtari clarified.
Mahama further called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to call Abronye to order as his embarrassing conducts do not depict those of a “Regional Vice Chairman of the ruling party”.
“We note that Mr. Baffoe (Abronye DC), has become a conduit through which the NPP churns out the most outrageous lies and propaganda against the person of the Former President. It is a sad testimony, that a serial fibster such as Kwame Baffoe occupies a position of trust such as a Regional Vice Chairman of the ruling party. Such persons debase our political system and are responsible for the continued erosion of public credibility in our democratic dispensation,” the statement adds.
“It is time President Akufo-Addo calls his propaganda side kick – Abronye DC to order as he continues to subject his party and government to further embarrassment,” Mahama advises.
