Prominent Ghanaian lawyer and politician, Gabby Otchere Darko, has taken a bold stance against allegations suggesting he criticized former President John Mahama for allegedly running a “family and friends” government. In a fervent response, Otchere Darko is challenging those who claim he made such statements to produce evidence supporting the accusations.
In a social media post and subsequent interviews, Otchere Darko asserted, “I want to set the record straight – I never castigated John Mahama for running a family and friends government. If there’s any evidence to the contrary, I challenge anyone to bring it forward.”
The accusations in question refer to purported statements attributed to Otchere Darko during the tenure of the previous administration. The lawyer, who is also a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is known for his vocal commentary on political matters.
As the controversy unfolds, political observers are closely watching to see if any evidence will be presented to substantiate the claims against Otchere Darko. The challenge he issued adds an intriguing dimension to the ongoing discourse surrounding political rhetoric and accountability in public statements.
The former President John Mahama’s camp has not yet responded to Otchere Darko’s challenge, leaving room for speculation on whether evidence will emerge to support or refute the allegations. The episode underscores the heightened scrutiny and transparency demanded in political discourse, especially regarding statements that can influence public perception.
