In the midst of the famous Airbus scandal, the ruling party New Patriotic Party, (NPP) has identified one Samuel Adams Mahama as the true face behind the “Intermediary 5” as stated in the court document.
Addresing the press at the party headquarters, the Director of Communications, Hon. Yaw Buabeng Asamoah alleged that, Samuel Mahama is the long lost brother of former president Mahama who played “go-between” services between Airbus and “Government Official 1”.
Apart from admitting to paying huge bribes in order to secure contracts in a number of countries including Ghana, Airbus also confessed to engaging an intermediary who happened to be a close relative of a high-ranking elected Ghanaian government official (Government Official 1).
Furthermore, Airbus revealed that, this same Intermediary 5 played a vital role with respect to business transactions, particularly sales between “Government Official 1” and Airbus.
Therefore, with all these revelations, the NPP strongly believes that the “Intermediary 5” is no other than Samuel Mahama, a Ghanaian born UK national who also doubles as a relative of the former president.
The Director of Communications however concluded that Samuel is no different from the one Mahama spoke about in his autobiography titled “My First Coup D’etat”.
“His book my first coup d’etat says that his long lost brother is Samuel Adams Mahama which the narrative coincides exactly with the identification in the court document”, he noted.
Adding that, “Because in the book we are told that Samuel was taken to the UK at the age of nine and hidden from his parents before he reunited with his family In the 90’s and also identifies the long lost sibling as Samuel Adams Mahama.
Meanwhile, the court documents say intermediary 5 who was doing the negotiations directly is a Ghanaian born UK national who immigrated into UK at a very early age.
Therefore, believes that those accounts are good enough to conclude that the intermediary 1 is Samuel Adams Mahama.
A London High Court found Airbus guilty and imposed a fine of three billion pounds (£3bn) as penalties.
The prosecutor stated in court: “Between July 1, 2011, and June 1, 2015, Airbus SE failed to prevent persons associated with Airbus SE from bribing others concerned with the purchase of military transport aircraft by the Government of Ghana, where the said bribery was intended to obtain or retain business or advantage in the conduct of business for Airbus SE”.
With regards to Ghana, the report further stated that Airbus “between 2009 and 2015 engaged intermediary 5, a close relative of a high-ranking elected Ghanaian government official (Government Official 1), as its BP in respect of the proposed sale of three aircraft to the government of Ghana.
