According to reports in the media, the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association had petitioned and encouraged John Dramani Mahama to compete for president.
The Association denies the veracity of the aforementioned rumors and adds that neither the purported Association executives nor its members visited the former president.
The Organization stated in a release that “our attention has been drawn to a publication in some of the print media and on the radio that Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association and some Union leaders have petitioned the former President, John Mahama urging him to contest for the Presidency in the 2024 general elections.”
The statement explained that “We wish to state that those people who joined the group to meet the former President are not either the Executives or even members of the Abossey Okai Spare parts Dealers Association”.
“It was some people from Abossey Okai who decided to join the group to meet the former President. And so, we are surprised that they paraded themselves as Abossey Okai Spare parts Dealers Association.”
