Edward Mahama-PNC

The People’s National Convention (PNC) has stated that it supports the appointment of the party’s Flagbearer, Dr Edward Mahama as Ambassador-at-Large by the government.

This is despite opposition by senior members of the PNC over the appointment.

Dr Edward Mahama, a five-time flagbearer of the PNC was named Ambassador-at-Large by President Nana Akufo-Addo recently.

However, some officials of the party, including National Chairman, Bernard Mornah expressed their reservations about the appointment, suggesting that it would limit his objectivity on national issues.

He also stated that Dr Mahama had violated his own principles, having reportedly opposed the appointments of other party members by previous governments, a claim the former flagbearer had categorically denied.

Generally, the party has taken a different stance on the development, as it has congratulated Mr Mahama for the appointment.

A statement signed by Director of Communications and spokesperson for the PNC, Emmanuel Wilson said: “NEC congratulates and supports Dr Edward N Mahama on his appointment as Ambassador-at-Large, by the President.”

The statement also confirmed Atik Mohammed’s suspension, adding that “his deputy, Mr Jacob Amoako should take over.” –citifmonline.com
