The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has registered its displeasure with government’s handling of businessman Ibrahim Mahama over some dishonoured cheques.
The NDC said former President John Mahama’s brother did not commit any crime when he issued 44 cheques to the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) that turned out to be dud.
The cheques were to offset debts incurred by two companies – MBG Limited and Holman Brothers – for the clearance of some heavy duty equipment at the Tema Port in 2015.
NDC National Organiser, Kofi Adams told Evans Mensah on Joy FM’s Top Story Monday, government’s handling of the issue smacks of an attempt to victimise the businessman because of his link to the past administration.
“Ghanaians did not spend time to vote for a government to go after political opponent to destroy their businesses,” he said. “This is not right.”
The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has directed the Chief Executive Officer of Engineers and Planners to pay the amount of GHC12 million owed the state by May 8, 2017.
