Former President John Dramani Mahama has denied any coup plot allegations levelled against him by the Bono Regional chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffor also known as Abronye DC.
In a statement signed by the aid of the former President, Mrs. Joyce Bawa Mogtari yesterday in Accra, described the coup allegation as frivolous and an attempt by the members of the ruling NPP to damage the hard won reputation of the former President both home and internationally.
Below is the full statement:
I have been instructed by former President John Dramani Mahama to respond to yet another publication of false and concocted stories by one Kwame Baffoe also known as Abronye from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
HE John Dramani Mahama has not met with any group of people, let alone a terrorist group, to plot to stage a coup d’etat.
President Mahama is very well known, both in Ghana and internationally, as a democrat and a strong believer in strengthening democracy not only in Ghana but across the continent of Africa. Therefore, any attempt to align or associate him with anti-democratic activities, acts of destabilization, and abuse of human and other rights, cannot be true.
This is not the first time Abronye has made such despicable and reprehensible allegations and caused same to be published about President Mahama and many other leading members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
This further clarification, despite reports of a police action against the said Abronye, is simply to re-emphasise President Mahama’s integrity and democratic credentials.
