Communications Director for the Ghana Gas Company Limited, Ernest Owusu Bempah has alleged that John Dramani Mahama tried to buy his silence in 2016.
According to him, at the time, he was a serious proponent of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its policies and programmes and its administration.
Mr Bempah said the former President felt threatened by his advocacy because it was making him unpopular and therefore tried to buy his silence but he rejected the bribe three consecutive times.
“Even people in the NDC are aware I cannot be bought. John Mahama in 2016 packed money in a Ghana must go bag and gave it to someone to bribe me but I did not fall for that. I outrightly rejected the money. I don’t want to mention the person’s name but I rejected them three times.”
“When NDP was going to be formed, they came to Kumasi wanting to bribe me but I rejected them. If it were money, I was looking for like I will be like the people who were part of FONKA but have gone to take money but I’m here. They brought money for me to stop criticizing the then President and stop following Akufo-Addo because Mahama is not happy. But I’ve stood on my ground so for me it’s not about Owusu Bempah will say this or that. Everybody knows me and I’ve been consistent and I’ve been straight forward with my politics.”
He noted that Ghanaians will maintain the working Akufo-Addo government the grounds are good and Ghanaians want to keep Akufo-Addo in power to finish the good work he has started across the country to the benefit of the Ghanaian.
