Stan Dogbe, a former presidential aide said, BBC’s interview on “bribe-taking” with former President John Dramani Mahama in 2016 is one that shouldn’t have happened.
According to the honourable, he was not present at the BBC’s interview with President Mahama because it wasn’t part of the itinerary of that trip.
“It’s one of the interviews that the President should not have. It’s because he did not go there for an interview,”He said on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, Thursday.
Stan further stated that the former Communication Minister, Edward Omane Boamah, was on that trip as well but was also oblivious of the BBC’s plan to interview the former President.
“In those moments, I tell you from my experience, the president doesn’t have to say much. A yes or no can damage the narrative you want to put out there,”Stan Dogbe stated.
In 2016, the then President John Mahama in an interview with BBC denied ever taking a bribe or indulging in corruption.
