Member of Parliament MP for Yendi constituency, Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama has denied knowledge of a Facebook post on his personal account that sought to attack or some persons in the president Akufo-Addo’s government whose actions seem to dim the light the late Vice president, Alhaji Aliu Mahama left behind.
In a statement disclaiming the said post that earlier on appeared on his Facebook account, the MP said the words carried by the earlier post do not represent his thoughts and therefore are not his.
“My attention has been drawn to a write-up circulating on social media purporting to be coming from me. I want to place on record that the piece is not my craft and does not represent my thoughts. Immediately my attention was drawn to it I sanctioned the handlers of my page and directed that the write up be pulled down; same was effected at my behest. I do not share in the content of the piece neither does it sit with my upbringing”, he said.

In another post, Alhaji Farouk is calling on the youth and supporters of the NPP in the Yendi constituency to exercise restraint following the news of disturbance over the rumors that president is sidelining him in his government.
According to him, president Akufo-Addo is the one whose words are final on who gets appointment to where, adding that God knows what is best for him.
“I have learnt about some disturbances and street protest by some Yendi youth in the early evening of today”, the statement said.
“While I entreat calm among the youth of Yendi, I also charge the youth to be patient and know that the Almighty Allah is the best of designers. The President of the Republic is the ultimate appointing authority and we must all be guided by that irrevocable fact!”, it added.
Meanwhile, some of the angry NPP supporters protesting against President Akufo-Addo for not appointing their MP as minister is threatening to continue to demonstrate until the president places Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama in any ministry.
