Former National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah has vehemently stated that the party is overexposing former President Mahama in the Airbus Scandal.
According to him, there was no need for the party to hold a press conference to respond to the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) quest of unmasking government Official 1.
“I do not support Thursday’s press conference which sought to respond to the NPP’s press conference on Monday asking former President Mahama to own up the identity of government Official 1. The issue has almost died down. Why should we rekindle it,” Solomon Nkansah fumed on “Pae Mu Ka” on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7 with Kwaku Dawuro.
Solomon Nkansah explained that the onus of explanation lies with the British Crown Court and not the NDC hastily organizing a press conference.
“Dawuro, silence is golden and too much explanation by the NDC in such matters do not help the personality of former President Mahama.’
The ruling NPP on Monday asked the NDC and former President Mahama to own up government Official 1 as stated by the British Crown Court.
But in a sharp rebuttal, the NDC has said unveiling government Official 1 is not the duty of the NDC but Airbus.
Meanwhile, President Akufo – Addo has referred the Airbus scandal to the Office of the Special Prosecutor to unravel the matter.
