I'm not plotting to assassinate Akufo-Addo - Mahama

Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has dispelled claims that he is planning to assassinate President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He said that assertion by the founder of the Glorious Word Ministries, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah is a lie.

In a statement signed by Joyce Mogtari Bawa, an aide to Mahama said: "Owusu Bempah is tainted politically."

Rev. Owusu Bempah in an interview on Oman FM alleged that some members of the National Democratic Congress including Mahama are scheming to eliminate the president and vice president Mahamudu Bawumia.



The attention of former President John Dramani Mahama has been drawn to claims made by a certain Pastor Owusu Bempah on Oman FM on 7thMarch, 2019 accusing the former president of planning to commit a crime.

In direct response to the said accusations, I am directed by Mr. Mahama to state that the claims of the said pastor are false. They remain imaginations of a warped mind and effusions of a politically-tainted founder of a church who would say and do anything to attract attention to himself.

As a known surrogate of the Akufo-Addo government, the said Owusu Bempah’s statements are clearly calculated to distract the attention of the suffering masses of Ghana from the mounting issues of bad governance, corruption, insecurity, hardship and dishonesty.


It is disgraceful that someone who claims to be a prophet of God would readily agree to be used to broadcast lies emanating from a vivid imagination instead of preaching the word of God. Never in the entire account of the bible has there been any anointed prophet of God who only praises a king and turns a blind eye to the evils committed in his reign.

Mr. Mahama would also like to take this opportunity to assure the good people of Ghana that he remains the peaceful, focused, people-loving, and gentle politician that he has always been.

He will not be distracted by the deliberately planned and concocted stories to keep afloat a scandal-mongering campaign against him by the ruling party.
