Former President Mahama has pointed to the expression of views from some senior members of his party as a sign of the NDC’s growing internal democratic processes.
John Mahama stressed he doesn’t agree with groups and members of the party who view this trend as detrimental to the party’s development and reunification processes ahead of the 2020 polls.
This was mentioned in a press release written and signed by Special Aide to the Former President, Joyce Bawah Mogtari.
The release sought to disassociate John Mahama from some comments made by a certain group alleging to belong to the party affiliated to the former president.
Below is the full release issued by Joyce Bawa Mogtari
JOHN MAHAMA DISCOUNTS TRIBAL STATEMENTS
The Office of HE John Dramani Mahama has noted with concern a statement from a group calling itself the Social Democratic Forum, which contains unacceptable tribal undertones.
The said group is unknown to the Office and indeed the National Democratic Congress (NDC). We condemn the tribal undertones of the statement and rejects its content entirely.
The Former President does not view the expression of divergent views from the senior members of the party as inimical in any way but rather a demonstration of the maturity of the NDC’s internal democratic arrangements.
We are by this statement urging the public to completely disregard any suggestion that the claims made in the said statement are the views of President Mahama and note that the group if it truly exists, does not in any way represent the values of the Former President.
