President John Mahama has denied rumours he has diverted into his phantom personal Swiss Bank account a $170 billion World Bank loan meant for Ghana.
President Mahama says rumours of that nature will not deter him.
He was addressing a rally in the Upper West regional capital Wa to round up his campaign tour of that part of the country last night.
“They are writing all kinds of things on the internet, that I have taken 170 billion world bank money and I have to put it in a SWISS bank account. It’s the funniest story I’ve ever heard,” the president said.
He said the lies being peddled will not save the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from the defeat staring in their faces, adding “who Jah bless, no man curse.”
The President has toured the three northern regions in the past one week expounding his Advancing the Better Ghana agenda.
He has also commissioned a number of projects while urging contractors to speed up various developmental projects in that part of the country.
