He stressed that he has no intention of wishing harm upon Mr Mahama.

He has, therefore, apologised to Mr Mahama and his running mate, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, regarding his remarks in a video been circulated on the social media.

Mr. Ahwoi in a remark during an event in honour of Prof. Opoku-Agyemang in Accra on Thursday, March 21, 2024, said she should be ready for any scenario that could lead to her presidency.

His comments have been met with criticisms from some NDC members who interpreted them to mean that he did not expect Mahama to complete a potential four-year term.

But in a press statement on Sunday, March 24, Kwesi Ahwoi clarified that he had no intention of wishing harm upon the former President.

The NDC stalwart expressed regrets over the misunderstanding his comments had caused.

“I sincerely regret the wrong impression that my comment has created. Indeed, it was not my intention, and never will it be my intention to pray that H.E. John Mahama does not serve his full four-year term when he wins the 2024 general elections.

“I hereby render an unreserved and unqualified apology to H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the leadership and rank and file of the great NDC.”, he added.

Kwesi Ahwoi writes:

I have taken notice of the unfortunate controversy that has arisen as a result of a comment I made at a reception organized last Thursday by the Churchstreet group of NDC faithful for Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, Running Mate to our esteemed flagbearer, H.E. John Dramani Mahama.

I sincerely regret the wrong impression that my comment has created. Indeed, it was not my intention, and never will it be my intention to pray that H.E. John Mahama does not serve his full four-year term when he wins the 2024 general elections.

I concede that I misspoke on the occasion. I accept the criticisms in good faith, even though some of the criticisms arise out of a deliberate misrepresentation of my statement.

Indeed, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang in response to my toast, pointed out the erroneous impression created by my statement and was categorical in asserting that she was certain that H.E. John Mahama will win the 2024 general elections and serve his full four-year term.

It is unfortunate that my statement appears to have taken the shine off what was otherwise a cheerful and light-hearted occasion.

I hereby render an unreserved and unqualified apology to H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the leadership and rank and file of the great NDC.

Comrades and friends, let us put this unfortunate incident behind us and unite behind our flag-bearer, the visionary Nation Builder, to rescue our beloved country in the December 2024 elections.

SIGNED.
