Kwesi Ahwoi Apologizes To John Mahama And Jane Naana

The former Minister for Food and Agriculture and a prominent figure within the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwesi Ahwoi, has issued a formal apology over a comment he made at a reception organized by the Churchstreet group of NDC faithfuls last Thursday.

The event was held in honour of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, the Running Mate to the NDC’s flagbearer, H.E. John Dramani Mahama.

The former Minister for Food and Agriculture expressed sincere regret over the misunderstanding caused by his comment, emphasizing that it was never his intention to imply anything negative towards John Mahama’s potential presidency.

He admitted to misspeaking on the occasion and acknowledged the criticisms, although he highlighted that some of the reactions stemmed from a deliberate misrepresentation of his statement.

During the event, Ahwoi’s comment sparked controversy as it was perceived by some as suggesting a lack of support for John Mahama’s potential full four-year term if he were to win the 2024 general elections.

Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang addressed Ahwoi’s comment during the event, clarifying the misinterpretation and affirming her confidence in John Mahama’s victory in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

Ahwoi’s apology aims to put an end to the controversy that overshadowed the otherwise cheerful gathering.

He extended an unreserved apology to H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, and the entire leadership and membership of the NDC.

He, however, called for unity within the party, urging everyone to rally behind Mahama as the flagbearer in the upcoming elections.

Ahwoi emphasized the need to move past the incident and focus on supporting Mahama as the NDC’s candidate in the December 2024 elections, portraying him as a visionary leader capable of leading the country to greater heights.

Kwesi Ahwoi writes:

I have taken notice of the unfortunate controversy that has arisen as a result of a comment I made at a reception organized last Thursday by the Churchstreet group of NDC faithfuls for Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, Running Mate to our esteemed flagbearer, H.E. John Dramani Mahama.

I sincerely regret the wrong impression that my comment has created. Indeed, it was not my intention, and never will it be my intention to pray that H.E. John Mahama does not serve his full four-year term when he wins the 2024 general elections.

I concede that I misspoke on the occasion. I accept the criticisms in good faith, even though some of the criticisms arise out of a deliberate misrepresentation of my statement.

Indeed, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang in response to my toast, pointed out the erroneous impression created by my statement and was categorical in asserting that she was certain that H.E. John Mahama will win the 2024 general elections and serve his full four-year term.

It is unfortunate that my statement appears to have taken the shine off what was otherwise a cheerful and light-hearted occasion.

I hereby render an unreserved and unqualified apology to H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the leadership and rank and file of the great NDC.

Comrades and friends, let us put this unfortunate incident behind us and unite behind our flag-bearer, the visionary Nation Builder, to rescue our beloved country in the December 2024 elections.
