Residents of Bole in the Northern Region, the hometown, Ibrahim Mahama has stated categorically that Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong’s interest in a case involving brother of former President John Mahama, and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) smacks of jealousy.
According to them, Kennedy Agyapong is bent on making Ibrahim Mahama’s life unbearable because he is a successful businessmen and richer than him [Kennedy Agyapong].
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Engineers and Planners is currently settling scores with EOCO for dud cheques he gave to the customs division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
Ibrahim Mahama last week was ordered by EOCO to pay GH¢12.7m to the Ghana Revenue Authority by May 8, 2017.
The amount represents duty for goods he cleared at the Tema Port with the said dud cheques in 2015 plus interest.
The interest on the amount was worked by the Ghana Revenue Authority.
However, the Assin Central MP on Adom TV told the whole country that, it is either Ibrahim Mahama, goes to jail or he will commit suicide.
He brandished some documents he claimed were the dud cheques Ibrahim Mahama issued to the Ghana Revenue Authority for which reason he should be thrown in jail.
But spokesperson for Bole residents and the PRO for Gonja Land Association, Haruna Mahama in an interview said Kennedy Agyapong is not an officer of the Ghana Revenue Authourity and therefore could not fathom why he is interested in the matter.
He indicated that threats by Kennedy Agyepong to commit suicide if Ibrahim Mahama who is their kinsman is not jailed indicates that he has a personal agenda against him [Ibrahim] for which reason he speaks as though the law is in his bosom.
