The General Secretary for the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has made it clear that Mahama does not sponsor the Unity Walks the NDC has been organizing.
‘Honestly, if you ask me who funds the Unity Walk I don’t know’.
‘These things are based at the regional level so it is the regions that organize and invite us to address them’.
‘So I have never been approached for any funding or to raise any funding for any of the unity walk’.
Asiedu Nketiah went on to say that he has been told some people mount the stages and show appreciation to the MPs from the region and other individuals who helped organized the walk.
He also said he does not know if Mahama sponsors the Unity Walks but what he knows is that the former President said in ‘Tamale or some other place’ that he is not the one who funds the Unity Walk which according to him was confirmed by the regional executives.
Apart from that, he indicated that he is aware they raise funds for June 4 and 31 December celebration.
Since the NDC started organising the Unity Walks, some Ghanaians have been saying it is a strategy Mahama is using to make himself popular again.
