The Spanish Ambassador to Ghana Alicia Rico has refuted claims that former President John Mahama “painted Ghana black” to diplomats within the nation after he met them over the violence that characterised the Ayawaso West-Wuogon by-election in January.
Mahama got here underneath heavy criticism from the federal government and different critics after he met the diplomats and confirmed them movies of the brutalities that befell through the election which was received by the ruling celebration’s candidate.

“This is unpatriotic and shameful. It is because if he gathered Ghanaians, call it the academia or Ghanaian professionals or Ghanaian businessmen and he talked about matters of concern to him, I’ll have no problem. He’s a former head of state and then for a very important opinion leader but to gather foreigners and try to paint Ghana black is just not acceptable,” Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo stated of the previous president’s actions.
The ambassador who was talking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat Wednesday earlier declined to supply a definitive response on the matter, yielded to the insistence of a caller on the topic answering “ No, I don’t think Ghana has been painted black”.
