Former President John Dramani Mahama has said “President Akufo-Addo did not seek my intervention on the E-Levy impasse”. 

Rather, he said: “I received Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, at his request, at my residence on Tuesday, 21 December 2021”. 

In a post on his Facebook page on Wednesday, 22 December 2021, Mr Mahama revealed: “Among issues we discussed was the desire of Ghanaians to see the two major political parties working together for the interest of the nation”.

“We discussed, also, how dialogue can be deployed to ensure Parliamentary issues are agreed consensually before coming on the floor to avoid what happened recently in the House”, Mr Mahama said. 

Additionally, he said: “We further discussed opening channels of communication between the leaders of the two parties including a possible meeting with the President at a future date”. 

“At no time was there any discussion specifically about the President requiring my intervention in the impasse on the E-levy”, he stressed.
