Former President and 2020 flag bearer of opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama says President Akufo-Addo did not seek his intervention on the E-levy impasse.
In a lengthy Facebook he wrote;
Prez Akuffo Addo did not seek my intervention on the E-levy impasse
I received Mr. Gabby Otchere Darko, at his request, at my residence on Tuesday 21st December, 2021
Among issues we discussed was the desire of Ghanaians to see the two major political parties working together for the interest of the nation
We discussed, also, how dialogue can be deployed to ensure Parliamentary issues are agreed consensually before coming on the floor to avoid what happened recently in the House.
We further discussed opening channels of communication between the leaders of the two parties including a possible meeting with the President at a future date.
At no time was there any discussion specifically about the President requiring my intervention in the impasse on the E-levy.
