Prosecute me with corruption if you have the evidence- Mahama challenges NPP

The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has thrown down the gauntlet to the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP), challenging them to prosecute him for corruption if they have any evidence against him.

Speaking at a media event held at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra, Mahama addressed the persistent allegations of corruption levelled against him by his political opponents. He boldly asserted that if the current Akufo-Addo-led government had any substantial evidence of corruption against him, they would have already initiated prosecution during their nearly eight-year tenure. Mahama emphasised that he is not afraid of being held accountable for his actions while in office. Furthermore, he vowed to hold the members of the current government accountable for their alleged corrupt dealings and other malfeasances.

At the same event, Mahama dismissed claims by his political adversaries that he opposes the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy and would cancel it if re-elected as president. He argued that it is illogical to suggest that he is against free SHS, highlighting that he initiated the programme in 2015, a move which was praised by the now-President Akufo-Addo and UNESCO.
