Joyce Bawah Mogtari, special aide to former president; John Dramamni Mahama has distanced the former first gentleman of the land from a statement issued by a group calling itself Social Democratic Forum.
Madam Mogtari noted that the tribal slant by the Social Democratic Forum was unacceptable to Mr. Mahama who she says does not know the group.
Below is her full statement:
The Office of HE John Dramani Mahama has noted with concern a statement from a group calling itself the Social Democratic Forum, which contains unacceptable tribal undertones.
The said group is unknown to the Office and indeed the National Democratic Congress (NDC). We condemn the tribal undertones of the statement and rejects its content entirely.
The Former President does not view the expression of divergent views from the senior members of the party as inimical in anyway but rather a demonstration of the maturity of the NDC’s internal democratic arrangements.
We are by this statement urging the public to completely disregard any suggestion that the claims made in the said statement are the views of President Mahama and note that the group, if it truly exists, does not in any way represent the values of the Former President.
