Members of the John Mahama campaign team have denied reports that a sum of GHS265,000 of donations received from the general public by the team has disappeared.
That publication according to the team is false. “It is the work of fake news entrepreneurs and their political paymasters who have been dazed by the huge momentum built across the country by the campaign of former President John Dramani Mahama,” a statement signed by James Agyenim Boateng, spokesperson for Mr Mahama’s campaign team said.
“These political detractors have also been overwhelmed by the massive support of the general public for the John Mahama 2020 campaign as well as the very positive response of Ghanaians to financially support the flagbearership and re-election bids of former President John Dramani Mahama, and they are therefore doing everything they can to cause disaffection for the team,” the statement added.
According to the statement no money paid to legitimate fundraising platforms launched by the campaign has disappeared.
The team assured that all donations received will be properly accounted for and put to judicious use.
The team further expressed “appreciation to all those who have donated money to the campaign as well as those supporting in diverse ways.”
