President Mahama's brother, Ibrahim Mahama has asked the opposition New Patriotic party to stop using his name to score political points.

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has alleged that President John Dramani Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama, are connected to the $510 million dollar Ameri Power deal.

A statement by the party said”Two of the companies connected to this transaction are also closely connected to President John Mahama. These are Engineers & Planners, owned by the President’s brother, and entrepreneur, Ibrahim Mahama. In fact, President John Mahama was at one time a director of Engineers & Planners. The other firm, Amandi Construction, which has also generously benefitted from government contracts and its executives are very close to the President, is a sister company to STL, the controversial firm that is a contractor to both the Electoral Commission and the National Health Insurance Authority regarding the biometric register of both institutions."

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Engineers and Planners (E&P), Ibrahim Mahama said the argument by the NPP is baseless.

He added that he had no intentions of suing the party for the false accusations.

"I have a lot of friends in the NPP. After shows, I call them. It is all politics. Look, my name, Ibrahim, will not win the NPP the 2016 elections, because I have earned it. I don't care anymore; I will speak. When issues come, I will speak and explain further. Where I've reached today, I never believed I'll get there," Ibrahim Mahama said.

The brother of the President had earlier expressed disgust as to why the Ameri Power Project contract was not given to Ghanaian contractors.

He said he would have been able to execute the project if he were given the contract.

His company, Engineers & Planners Company Limited (E&P) has also denied any link to the AMERI Energy Power Project.

The company said it is in no way “involved and has no role in AMERI’s contract with the Government of Ghana and the purchase or sourcing of power turbines by AMERI for the generation of power.”
