Former Member of Parliament for Nantong Constituency, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed says the lawsuit against former President John Dramani Mahama was not just done by the NPP, but also certain individuals within the NDC are behind it.

A Ghanaian businessman is challenging the legibility of former President John Mahama to contest for elections in his bid to ultimately win the presidential election in 2020.

Stephen Agyeman is praying the High Court to declare that Mr Mahama, in raising funds to support his bid to be elected as a flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in his capacity as a former President of the Republic of Ghana, without the permission of Parliament, violates Article 68 (2) of the 1992 Constitution.

Giving a clue to the possible person(s) behind the lawsuit against ex-President Mahama, Murtala Mohammed said any aspiring Presidential candidate who will begin to talk on this court case, thinking it is an advantage for him should be considered as a suspect behind the lawsuit.

In a panel discussion on Radio Gold’s ‘Alhaji and Alhaji’ political talk show, Murtala Mohammed declared the lawsuit as a joke which will not fly; thus, it is a calculated attempt to take an undue advantage of the whole presidential primary.

“. . but we do know that this particular court case which I will describe as a joke . . . was done by certain individuals also within the NDC, and people should watch out, a candidate who begins to talk on this, thinking that it would be an advantage for him, they should know who indeed actually planted this particular case,” he hinted.

He was however sure the delegates are very clear in their minds who to vote for as the Presidential Candidate to lead the NDC in the 2020 general elections.

Inasmuch as Murtala Mohammed does not want the NDC to impose any candidate on the electorates, he also warned against people who will say certain candidates should not contest in the Presidential Primaries.
