Mr Ibrahim Mahama has said he made his money genuinely as a businessman before his brother, John Mahama, became president, and, so, does not have to look over his shoulders in spending it.

“I want to set the record straight that I was who I was; I was successful,” Mr. Mahama told graduate students of the University of Ghana at the 2018 GRASSAG Entrepreneurship Seminar.

“That’s why I can chop my money without looking back and thinking that Amidu is coming to call me.

“And that is the confidence I do have”, he said, adding: “I don’t go anyplace fearing my shadow, running away from my shadow”.

“When I started business, John Mahama hadn’t even picked up his forms to become MP,” Mr Mahama who heads Engineers and Planners told his audience.

Mr Mahama urged successful businesspeople in the country to extend their philanthropy to students, as he pledged $2000 to 20 graduates at the event.

“There are a lot of very successful other businessmen who should listen to the youth. What the youth are looking is $2000 or $3000. Let’s be able to do what others did for the likes of us that helped us to start our businesses that have now become a monster.

“The business has grown beyond me so much so that even when I am not there, the business will stand on its feet,” he noted.
