Former President, John Dramani Mahama has said the challenges of the New Patriotic Party is borne out of the fact that the party lied its way into power.
According to the former President, ” for lies, if you tell one, you have to keep telling lies to save yourself. It is said that you can lie to win power but you can’t govern a nation with lies”.
President John Dramni Mahama who was addressing a crowd at the well-attended Unity Walk of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Techiman said the NPP lied about the DKM saga to paint him and his wife black just because they wanted to win power.
He indicated that regardless of the lies told about regarding the DKM saga, the government is now quiet about it; an indication that they lied to make him look bad in the sight of Ghanaians who were affected by the saga.
He said “When the DKM issue came up, the NPP accused my wife and me of owning that company. So they said when they come into power, they will retrieve the money from us and give it back to those it was taken from. By God’s grace today, they are in now power. I challenge them to investigate the ownership of DKM. If DKM is owned by my wife and me, arrest us but they are now very quiet”.
Thousands of customers of DKM Microfinance Company lost their investments, running into millions of cedis, after the owners of the company invested in unapproved ventures and lost their funds.
The Bank of Ghana subsequently confiscated the assets of the company and appointed the Registrar General’s Department to commence the liquidation process to refund customers of the company in 2016.
