Former President John Mahama has cautioned members of the National Democratic Congress to ignore any individual who comes in his name to undertake a supposed post survey of the Kwesi Botchwey report.
According to a statement signed by the special aide to the former President, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, some members of the umbrella family are going round soliciting information from party executives under the guise of working for Mr. Mahama.
“The Office of HE John Dramani Mahama wishes to inform all members, supporters and sympathisers of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the Former President has not constituted any team to undertake a post Kwesi Botchwey Committee survey.
“We have over the last week received reports from across the country about the activities of some members of the Party seeking to solicit information from executives and members of the NDC, claiming that they are being sponsored by the Office of HE John Dramani Mahama,” the statement said.
It concluded: “We wish to strongly advise them to desist from such acts of impersonation and misinformation, particularly as we all continue to work towards reorganizing the Party across the country”.
Mr. Mahama, who was defeated in the 2016 elections by now President Akufo-Addo , is yet to declare whether he will contest the NDC flagbeareship come 2018.
