Mahama has no credibility – Aide to Bawumia

Akbar Yussif Rohullah Khomeini, an aide to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has labeled ex-President, John Dramani Mahama has an individual who lacks credibility.

In an interview with TV3, Mr Khomeini pointed to the infamous Airbus scandal and bribery allegations as evidence, contending that Mahama’s credibility, particularly on matters of corruption, is severely compromised.

According to him, Mahama lacks integrity in the fight against corruption.

“I think that as somebody who passionately advocates for Mahama  he should be the last person to use the word credibility, especially on matters bothering corruption. Mr Mahama is the only politician I know at the highest level who is incurably corrupt, there is absolutely no doubt about that.

“In February 2009, according to the Federal Court report on the matter of the infamous Airbus scandal, the court established conclusively that Mr Mahama as early as February 2009  was in a constant email conversation with officials of Airbus.

His statement was in response to Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), who accused Dr. Bawumia of being a habitual liar.

Mr Gyamfi alleged that Bawumia deceived the public in 2016 and 2020 with falsehoods to secure victories for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

However, Mr Khomeini, countering these claims, criticized Mahama’s credibility, citing the infamous Airbus scandal and accusing him of receiving bribes.

He argued that Mahama’s reputation as a corrupt politician is well-established, both locally and internationally.

“We also have listened, after a series of investigations by the Special Prosecutor that it was established clearly that Mr Mahama was the man designated Government Official 1. It was this man who used the name of his brother as the intermediary to receive bribes worth 8 million dollars with a phony company registered in Spain that phony company took 3million dollars out of the money and remitted over 5 million dollars to Mr. Mahana.”

He added “Indeed, if we were in any democratic culture that works effectively, Mr Mahama should not be leading any political party into any elections. This is a man whose reputation as a corrupt man is known locally and internationally. In fact, in the BBC interview he was asked ‘Have you ever received bribes?’ he dilly-dallied and asked a counter question whether as a human being or as president.  When Dr Bawumia spoke at UPSA, he proudly declared that as a human being and as vice president he is not corrupt.”

He suggested that, given Mahama’s alleged involvement in corruption, he should not lead any political party in elections.

“It is very laughable that our friends in the NPP and Bawumia think that they can once again hoodwink the people with lies.

“Ghanaians are wide awake. The days when Bawumia could get away with his lectures as we saw in opposition which were full of lies, are gone. He got away with it in 2016 and in 2020, but they will not be third time lucky in 2024. The whole propaganda that he was the economic Messiah, and he had the magic wand has been exposed.“

The people have no confidence and trust in Bawumia, his people are faced with the challenge of marketing a candidate who is a chronic liar,” he said.
