Former President, John Dramani Mahama says he has immense respect for the Asantehene and will not allow the recent misunderstanding over events of the 2016 elections mar his relationship with the revered chief.
His comments come on the back of a seeming tension between the camps of the two after the former President’s Chief of Staff had suggested that the Asantehene may have lied at a presentation to the UN.
Former Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, in a piece insisted that former President John Dramani Mahama voluntarily conceded defeat in the 2016 general elections without persuasion from anybody contrary to the claim by the Asantehene that he had to persuade candidate Mahama to concede defeat.
But in a bid to clarify his Chief of Staff’s comments, the former President says Mr. Debrah’s comments were only to “shed more light on the events surrounding the 2016 poll.”
