Ibrahim Mahama returns fire; I won’t stop taking gov’t contracts

ibrahim-mahama-2-477x330The CEO of Engineers and Planners, Ibrahim Mahama in an exclusive interview with Citi News says he has developed a nonchalant attitude towards critics who claim he wins government contracts because of his brother President John Mahama.

According to him, he doesn’t care how his detractors accuse him of unduly benefiting from state projects because of his affiliation with the president.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Citi News’ Franklin Badu Jnr, Ibrahim Mahama said he will continue to work for the state when his service is needed.

I will work for the state, I am entitled to it. I voted and I am entitled to anything any Ghanaian is entitled to. I don’t know why politicians will couch me into fear, no.

Ibrahim Mahama has in recent times been in the news for allegedly being involved in the Ameri Power deal which brought ten turbines into Ghana.

Following reports by a Nowergian Newspaper that Ameri Power might have short-changed the country for charging about twice the amount for the turbines, the NPP accused Ibrahim Mahama of benefiting from the deal.

But Ibrahim Mahama denied the claim saying he was only contracted by the Volta River Authority (VRA) to prepare the place for the turbines; a work he had long completed and been paid.
