In a statement, the association said media reports that the Abosi Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association and some union leaders had petitioned former President John Mahama to run for the presidency in the 2024 general elections are false.
The statement explained that those who joined the group to meet the former president were neither executives nor members of Abasi Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association.
It said “Some people from Abossi Okai decided to join the group to meet the former president. So, we were surprised that they paraded themselves as Abassi Okai Spare Parts Distributors Association.”
Spare Parts Dealers is a non-political association and the association said that its office is open to all political parties and every election year all political parties come to our office and discuss with us.
He stressed that the association does not want to get involved in politics and will always continue to engage with every party in government to bring out policies that will positively impact our business.
