Mahama raising funds with his office unconstitutional – Kwamena Duncan

Former Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan has supported a suit by Ken Kuranchie against the former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama.



According to him, the former President, John Dramani Mahama is using his office to raise funds which is contrary to what is expected of him as a former President.

“When you’re done with your tenure as a President, you do not have to hold any office of profit or emolument except with the permission of Parliament in any establishment unless it’s a state establishment. So the question is, is the NDC flagbearer’s office a state establishment? Straight away you will bear with me that the NDC flagbearer’s office is not a state establishment and therefore it comes under any establishment.

Just four days ago, someone donated a cheque of a hundred thousand cedis to him and he has a fundraising platform where money from all corners is going directly to him. So as a country is it one that the former President is being unconstitutional with his activities or he’s as liberty by Law to do? That is why I believe Ken Kuranchie’s suit is in the right direction because there are implications including the former President losing his respect and also selling his loyalty to some people just because they are donating money to support him,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM.



Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight Kenneth Agyei Kuranchie has sued over former President John Dramani Mahama’s validity to contest in the 2024 general elections.

The reliefs he is seeking include, “A declaration that on a true and proper interpretation of Article 66 (1) of the 1992 Constitution, the number of years of a presidential term in Ghana is four years.

“A declaration that upon a true and proper interpretation of Article 66 (1)  and (2) of the 1992 Constitution, a person seeking a second presidential term must be a sitting president.

“An order directed at [John Mahama] to fully disclose to Parliament the terms of his engagements with Parliament as flagbearer of a political party.”
