General News of Monday, 8 April 2013
President John Mahama has denied having any business interest in the AGAAMS Group of companies, owners of Rlg Communications.
This was contained in a press statement from the presidency reacting to a Daily Guide News paper publication last week. The story insinuated that President Mahama has some form of shares or partnership in the business.
The President however insists he has no personal or business interest in the AGAAMS Group of companies.
The statement also indicated that the Chief of Staff had already directed the Minister at the Presidency in charge of Development Authorities to, in consultation with the SADA Board, present a report on the projects that were subject matter of the said publication.
This is expected to be done in two weeks.
The Office of the President also notified Daily Guide that, “in line with Article 162 (6) of the 1992 constitution” it was optimistic that the statement will be given the same “prominence as its publication on Thursday April 04, 2013”
