After giving the National Democratic Congress (NDC) an ultimatum to
apologize to him for calling him a social misfit, the Ashanti Regional
Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has vowed to spill the beans
concerning the corrupt practices former President Mahama and his late
father were involved in.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako alleged that the corrupt ways of John Mahama
when he was president was as a result of the trait he picked up from his
late father who did exactly like his son did when he was given an
opportunity to serve in government as the Member of Parliament for West
“I have conducted my own research from the community and spoken to
people who knew the late Emmanuel Adama Mahama very well. They all told
me that he was worse and did little to help the area as MP. It is their
wish that John Mahama’s father should have been jailed for taking
advantage of the system during Nkrumah’s time”, Mr. Bernard
He continued that “Your late father was a Member of Parliament for West
Gonja constituency but did nothing to improve their lives. History has
it that John Mahama fathers’ was full of himself and diverted monies
meant for development of his area into personal use. Few years down the
line, his son became President of Ghana and exceeds the corrupt ways of
his father by 1000%”.
The NPP Chairman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi further alleged
that “with what I know about Emmanuel Adama Mahama in mind”, the corrupt
ways of former President Mahama gives credence to the Akan adage that
states that “the crab can never give birth to a bird”.
