Former President John Dramani Mahama has dismissed the description by Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu that he is referred to as Government Official 1 in the Airbus scandal.
Speaking in an interview, Mahama said the claim was disappointing no proper investigation was done in the matter by Amidu he arrived at that conclusion.
“I am disappointed in Martin Amidu for putting that paragraph in his report to equalize things. No financial benefit accrued to me,” Mahama said.
“Not a single dollar…We are talking about a deferred prosecution agreement in which nobody’s names were mentioned and yet there’s been an inference that it must be this person, it must be that person and so legally, he doesn’t even have any basis to proceed, on what basis, on what document is the proceeding?” he said.
“What investigations has he done? Who has he spoken to? What investigation has he conducted? He should come out and tell us…” Mahama added.
Amidu revealed in his observations in a corruption risk assessment report submitted to the Office of the President on Friday, October 16 that “the only reason the former President [Mahama] has not been invited for interrogation (in spite of all threats from some of his followers and lawyers) is the fact that he got himself an insurance as the Presidential candidate of the other largest political party in Ghana”.
