“Never Will I Ever Discriminate or Talk to Somebody Based on Their Ethnic Origin”- Mahama


The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. John Mahama, has indicated that he does not overlook ethnocentrism and will not be unkind to anyone because of ethnicity.

 In an interview on ClassEBS with Benjamin Akakpo, Ex-president Mahama has clarified that he only shared a Facebook post put out by the Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Mr. Isaac Adongo, because he made some “cogent arguments” in regards to the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.

According to the former president, he has “never ever discriminated or talked to somebody based on their ethnic origin.”

On the issue of Akyem youth groups banning him or the NDC from campaigning in the area, he ardently stated that: “Nobody bans anybody. Let’s not even go there because if other people ban others, what country are we going to have?”

Further said “I have not abused Akyem people. Indeed, like I said, there are many Akyem people in my party so why will I say anything insulting to them?”

Ex- president Mahama came under serious attack when he shared Mr. Adongo’s post titled: ‘Agyapa Royalties Fraud Is the Last Straw: The Akyem Sakawa Boys and Grandpas must Go’.

In the said article, Mr. Adongo described President Akufo-Addo and some government officials as ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ and accused him of forming a family and friends alliance to capture the mineral resources of the state.
