How Mahama responded to Airbus saga when he was unexpectedly asked about it by a delegation

Former President John Mahama did not expect anyone to ask him about the Airbus saga when he received fisher folks at his residence in Accra over the weekend.

In a twist, the leader of the delegation asked:

“While I am about to take my seat, your Excellency, something that confuses us a great deal is the Airbus issue. They have brought this forgetting about galamsey, forgetting about missing tricycles and all that. The excavators, instead of being kept at the police station were housed in someone’s private place. It is worrying” he asked.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama in his reply however skipped the Airbus saga and dwelled on the excavators issue.

Mahama has kept a silence over the Airbus saga since it broke with fingers pointing at him as Government Official 1 and his brother as an intermediary 5.

In other developments, John Mahama is set to begin a three-day working visit to the Western North Region, which will include an interaction with a wide section of people from across the region dubbed  SpeakOut.

In a statement, the party said: “The SpeakOut with John Mahama will take place in all 16 regions of the country and serve as an opportunity for the NDC leader to meet, interact and listen directly to the people of Ghana. Among others, the SpeakOut initiative will enable him to better appreciate their personal desires and expectations, the needs of their communities and what they consider should be the priorities of government towards improving their standard of living and enhance social infrastructure”.

Accompanying Mr. Mahama will be the Party’s Manifesto Committee, who will also take advantage of the tour to listen to the grassroots views and incorporate them in the party’s 2020 Manifesto.

The Western North tour begins on Tuesday, 18th February, 2020 and ends on Thursday, 20th February 2020.
