Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker for the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa Constituency P.C. Appiah Ofori has expressed regrets for rejecting an offer made to him by former President John Dramani Mahama to serve in his government.
He told TV3’s Johnnie Hughes in an exclusive interview on Monday, September 28, 2020, that ”John Mahama himself called me and told me he wanted me to go and play a role in his administration and I told him that if he himself engages in corruption I would not hesitate to expose him”.
“He told me that was why he wanted me to come and be a check on him and his ministers but I didn’t take the position because if I should join NDC administration, it will mean that I had abandoned NPP and I had abandoned Akufo-Addo so I told him I won’t take the position but any corrupt practices that will take place in his administration which will come to my notice, I will draw his attention to it.”
What do you make of this?
