Reports of demanding bauxite concession from Gov’t false – Mahama



The Office of former President John Mahama has dismissed media reports suggesting that the statesman wants a bauxite concession back for his brother Ibrahim Mahama.

A Press statement dated April, 08, 2021 from the Office of the former President and a copy sighted by said that such a report can only be the figment of the imagination of the Daily Guide newspaper.

“A report in the Wednesday, April 08, 2021 edition of the Daily Guide Newspaper, which claims that former President John Dramani Mahama is demanding the return of a bauxite concession to his brother, before he will ‘gel’ with the sitting president, is nothing but a figment of the imagination of the editor and his so-called sources,” the former President’s Spokesperson, Felix Ofosu Kwakye disclosed in a response to the publication.

The statement further questioned: “What form of ‘gel’ does the government want with President Mahama, and for which reason, he will even consider making any demands?”

According to the release, President Mahama has remained the statesman that he is and has remained true to his commitments to multiparty democracy insisting that nothing will vary his standards in politics.

“He continues to have respect for the constitutional structures and has at no time made any request, nor suggested any conditions, let alone ask for the return of bauxite concessions by any person or entity as precondition for cooperation
with the President,” the statement concluded.
