Inside Story Of How Mahama ‘Diverted’ $13m E.O. Group Cash

Mr Mahama was mentioned in a petition written to Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu for an investigation to be conducted into the alleged misappropriation of the said development fund.

Mr. Mahama who described the claims as false said the petition is another orchestrated but failed attempt by the NPP Government to divert attention from the numerous corruption scandals suffocating it.

Former President John Mahama is incorruptible      

We have taken note of the circulation of what news reports, mischievously, say is a petition to the Special Prosecutor’s Office to investigate former President John Dramani Mahama for allegedly allowing the diversion of  $13million from a private company, EO Group, and meant for the development of the Western Region.

The above is obviously another false and dubious claim. Furthermore, the said petition is another orchestrated but failed attempt by the NPP Government to divert attention from the numerous corruption scandals suffocating it.

Former President Mahama, unlike President Nana Akufo-Addo, is incorruptible. He, therefore, welcomes the said petition and expects the Special Prosecutor who the petitioners claim is the originator and source of the false and dubious claims, to expeditiously commence its work.

It actually makes a mockery of the Special Prosecutor that the surrogates of the NPP will cite as their evidence, an article they say was written by him. This is a man who during his public vetting before parliament said the allegations he made against various people over the years, were based on perception.

To suggest as the petition claims that a President can divert funds from a private company in the circumstances described is absurd.
