Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman Wontumi has said that former President John Dramani Mahama was not invited to attend the final funeral rite of the late Queen Elizabeth II due to his involvement in the Airbus scandal during his administration.
According to him, the royal family doesn’t want to associate themselves with a corrupt politician.
Chairman Wontumi disclosed this to Wontumionline.
“The Royal Family commands respect and they don’t want to associate with scandalous persons who have gained fame through international corruption. They know who Government Official One is in the Airbus scandal and that is the reason they didn’t send an invitation to Mr. John Mahama”, Wontumi said.
Meanwhile, John Mahama has signed the book of condolence of Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor.
In a post shared, Mahama wrote “An era has come to an end. The world salutes a very great woman. She was the commonwealth; such a diplomat, who took it upon herself to bring diverse nations together. Her visits to Ghana in 1961 and 1999 are perfect examples.
“I recall my visit to Buckingham Palace in 2014 with my wife, Lordina, and our interaction. One is struck by her dignity and grace. She had a good sense of humor and clarity of thought. Fare thee well, Queen Elizabeth.”
