The Public Relations Officer [PRO] for Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) Mr Joseph Paddy, says the general public should disregard a story suggesting that spare parts dealers have rendered an apology to the former President John Dramani Mahama.
Mr Paddy who is also the Chairman of Abbosey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association [AOSPD] says that purported story of apology is for propaganda purposes and with evil intent.
“An would like to state categorically that, we [AOSPD] have not apologised to Mr Mahama and sees no reason why we should apologise him,” He said in interview with the media in Kumasi.
The information circulation suggests that, the spare parts dealers have expressed disappointment in President Akufo-Addo’s administration and have apologised to former President Mahama for referring to him as incompetent during his regime.
The association will go on his knees and apologise to Mahama for the insults hurled at him and the NDC government, the information said.
“As a personal apology, wherever Mahama is, he should forgive us. I want him to also forgive me personally. We insulted him… we embarrassed him. We called him a thief, incompetent and all sort of names. We thought this one [Nana Addo] was coming to help us, but he is rather finishing us!” spokesperson for the Spare Parts Dealers Takyi Addo said in an interview on Kumasi base radio station.
Reacting to the publication, Mr Paddy, PRO for GUTA, however, urged Ghanaians to disregard the publication and treat it with the contempt it deserves, since the association has no knowledge of this malicious intent and call on the media to be circumspect in its reportage.
