Sam Pee Yalley, a former Ghanaian ambassador to India, has issued a stern warning to anyone trying to impede or undermine John Dramani Mahama’s campaign for the NDC.
This response follows a lawsuit filed against John Mahama by a citizen, Kenneth Kwabena Agyei Kuranchie, to prevent him from running for the president or a political party in the future.
Instead of suing Mahama, Sam Pee Yalley advised the plaintiff to concentrate his efforts on identifying and bringing legal action against those responsible for diverting the nation’s oil income.
Sam Pee said, “Today, what should draw people like Ken Kuranchie is to report on how our oil revenues are being syphoned off.”
Sam Pee expressed his support for Ken Kuranchie in his lawsuit against John Dramani Mahama on TV3 Newday, but said that the plaintiff should be aware that the NDC has a responsibility to defend its leader and would do so.
“He [Ken Kuranchie] should know that more over 6 million people cast ballots for John Mahama, making the difference between him and President Akufo-Addo just about 500 or so.
“At least there are more than 6 million of us. So, no one should play about with the NDC. That is the point I am trying to make.
“The NDC just participated in the congress election and decisively chose John Mahama. Sam Pee said, “We have a responsibility to defend our leader using all lawful methods.
The NDC’s John Mahama has been sued by a Kenneth Kwabena Agyei Kuranchie, according to news reports that surfaced on Tuesday, June 13, 2023.
The plaintiff, Kenneth Kwabena Agyei Kuranchie, claims that the 1992 Constitution’s Article 66 (1) states that a candidate for a second term in the presidency must be the incumbent president, and that former President Mahama is not a sitting president and is only running for reelection after serving as president for about 8 years.
