President John Dramani Mahama told the BBC in London last week that he has never taken bribe in his life.
He also claimed that “Any human being in the world would have encountered corruption one way or the other, either being offered a bribe or a bribe being demanded from you. What you need to do is to put yourself in a position to (resist it),” but some Ghanaians certainly didn’t believe him.
They took to micro-blogging site, Twitter, to express their views on what the president said.
See a few below;
Interviewer: “Have you taken a bribe before?”

When BBC journalist asked Prez. Mahama whether he had ever accepted a bribe, did he expect “Yes” for an answer? Funny! Just thinking aloud!
