Special aide to former President John Dramani Mahama has refuted reports that he has promised to stabilise the Ghanaian cedi in the first 100 days in office when voted President in the 2024 General Election.

Several media outlets on Wednesday, May 29, reported that the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had made the promise during an address at the 8th Ghana CEO Summit.

In a statement, Joyce Bawah Mogtari said the former President had been misquoted.

“In response to some news publications quoting the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Dramani Mahama as promising to stabilise the Ghana Cedi in 100 days, the Mahama 2024 Campaign wishes to clarify as follows:

“Mr Mahama, with a deep understanding of the economic challenges confronting the country today, did not promise to stabilise the Ghana Cedi within 100 days. Instead, he laid out comprehensive plan in his remarks at the 8th Ghana CEO Summit to address the challenges, demonstrating his grasp of the situation,” Joyce Bawah Mogtari said in her statement.

In the statement, the special aide and spokesperson of John Dramani Mahama urged the media to report accurately to ensure that the general public is not misinformed.

"The Mahama 2024 Campaign reiterates its unwavering commitment to transparent and responsible communication with the Ghanaian people. We urge the media to accurately represent the candidate's statements in their reporting, ensuring the public is well-informed," Joyce Bawah Mogtari said.
