Dr. Gideon Boako, Technical Economic Advisor and Spokesperson of the Vice President has rubbished the promise by the former President John Dramani Mahama to pay all the locked up funds of depositors of collapsed financial institutions if re-elected as president.

The former President made the promise at a ceremony to unveil his running mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.

He pledged that an NDC government under him, will pay all locked up fund of depositors affected by the banking sector cleanup within the first year of his administration.

This promise by the former president has been met with mixed reaction from a section of Ghanaians. Whiles some are lauding John Mahama for it, others say it is one of his political gimmicks to sweep votes.

But Dr. Gideon Boako said John Mahama must not be taken seriously, because Ghanaians witnessed a similar development under John Maham’s tenure, with regards to the DKM and Justar Motors saga, but he failed to address it.

The Spokesperson for the Veep said he cannot fathom why John Mahama would make such a promise when he could not deal with the infamous DKM saga.

He therefore cautioned Ghanaians to be weary of promises by John Mahama, who is “very desperate for power and therefore will say anything to deceive Ghanaians to vote for him.”

“I’m baffled at Mahama’s promise because when he was in power…what prevented him from paying the monies to the DKM customers? – I want Ghanaians to examine carefully the promises being made by Mahama. It is pure politics,” Dr. Gideon Boako opined.
