Accra, Nov. 6, GNA – Mr John Abudulai Jinapor, the spokesperson to the President, on Tuesday denied a newspaper publication alleging that President John Dramani Mahama's convoy killed three persons in the Northern Region.
In a statement reacting to the publication in the Daily Guide newspaper, Mr. Jinapor stated that the President's convoy did not run over any pregnant woman nor was it involved in an accident in the Northern Region.
He described the publication as “another desperate ploy” by the opposition to divert attention from the President's successful campaign in the Northern Region, which had further boosted the popularity of the President in the region.
"We regret the adoption of crude tactics by some desperate and self seeking people who have resorted to publishing false stories about the president in the media," Mr. Jinapor noted.
He added that the opposition and their agents would fail in their attempt at fabricating stories to destroy the image of President Mahama.
