Business magnate and brother of Former President Mahama, Ibrahim Mahama has sent a delegation from the opposition National Demoratic Congress (NDC) to beg on his behalf, says Ashanti Regional Chairman for the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), Chairman Wontumi.
According to Chairman Wontumi whose real name is Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the enmity between him and Mr. Mahama is over since he (Ibrahim) has shown remorse for his actions towards him while his brother was president.
Ibrahim Mahama and Chairman Wontumi have for sometime now been at each other’s throat with various accusations and counter accusations.
First, Mahama filed a defamation suit at a Kumasi High Court seven against the NPP Chairman for alleging, then president Mahama took delight in frequently increasing fuel prices to fund the luxury lifestyle of his families abroad including Ibrahim Mahama.
Also, Wontumi fired another salvo early this year by sternly cautioning Ibrahim not to accuse him of influencing the relevant authorities to halt the operations of his bauxite company at Nyinahin.
In an interview with a Kumasi based radio station, Chairman Wontumi said all the misunderstanding between them is long gone.
He said; “There’s peace and harmony between me and Ibrahim Mahama now since he sent me an apology for all the troubles they took me to.”
“Apart from apologising to me directly, he also sent an aide, Joe, to apologise and several other big men from the opposition National Democratic Congress that I cannot mention here and I have also forgiven him,” he revealed.
“Once he has apologised, who am I to say I won’t forgive him,” he asked adding, “even God admonishes us to forgive our neighbours and so if I don’t forgive him, God won’t spare me.”
