A former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer and a communicator, Brogya Genfi says State Protocol was made aware that former President John Mahama would not attend the 63rd independence parade.
The parade which was held at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi saw John Mahama missing.
This raised eyebrows as some speculated that Mahama did not turn up due to political reasons.
A Chair with the inscription John Mahama, which was close to former President John Agyekum Kufuor was empty.
Some even said Mahama chose his wife’s birthday which also fell on March 6 over the state event but Brogya Gyamfi has explained why the Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) missed the event.
“The former President John Dramani Mahama indicated to the State Protocol of the independence day celebration of his unavailability to attend the event.”
Also missing on the day was former President and Founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings, Mr Genfi indicated that he attended a program at Sogakope hence his absence too.
