If you are expecting former President John Mahama to respond immediately to the Airbus alleged corruption scandal,then you will have to pull your brakes and wait a while.
This is because he has not been charged with any offence on the Airbus saga and will only talk at the appropriate time. These are the assertions of Member of Parliament for Tamale Central,Hon. Inusah Fuseini.
According to him, some people are only pouring their anger based on speculations against the former President for nothing and that will not push John Mahama to speak on the issue.Mr.Fuseini said former President Mahama speaking on the matter will be tantamount to stampeding the investigations process by the Special Prosecutor a reason has been silent.
“He doesnt want to stampede the process,he is not going to stampede the process,he is not going to change the discourse,he is not going to change the narrative.He wants the Special Prosecutor to do his work, he is not afraid of anything because he was not engaged in any wrong doing. I can tell you the former President Mahama is as interested in the Airbus scandal as all the people of this country because it is he who has gotten the bad press,it is he who stands to benefit from a report produced by the special prosecutor”.
“He will not stampede the special prosecutor,he will not in anyway muddy the waters that is why he is staying clear from the Airbus scandal to let special prosecutor do his work. those who are calling for him to speak, are probably not aware that former President Mahama is not under trial, he has no obligation to defend himself because he has not been charged with any offence.people are just speculating and pouring anger for nothing”. He noted.
The Tamale Central MP who was speaking Daybreak Upper East however stated that, he was with no shred of doubt that John Mahama and other public officials said to be involved in the Airbus purchase will be vindicated after the investigations.
“let me assure you with all the energy in me that former President John Mahama is interested in the Airbus debacle,he is interested because he believes in his heart of heart that the investigations to be carried out by the special prosecutor will vindicate not only John Dramani Mahama but all public officials who were connected with the purchase of the airbus that is the Kaesar 295.So former President Mahama is not under trial,he has no obligation to defend himself because people are just speculating and he so he will talk and talk at the appropriate time.
