President Nana Akufo-Addo has reacted to the complaints lodged against the presidency by the office of former president, John Dramani Mahama.
In a statement released by the Minister of Information, Mustapha Hamid, the president noted that he is currently focused on correcting errors committed by the Mahama–led administration and for that matter, has little interest in “attacking” him.
The statement from the presidency comes on the heels of claims by the office of John Mahama to the effect that the current administration, through two newspapers, Daily Guide and Statesman have accused him of being behind the attacks on the Free SHS policy by the AfricaWatch magazine.
Former President Mahama, is reported to have distanced himself from the publication and categorically stated, through his special aide, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, that he has no ties to the AfricaWatch magazine.
In reaction to these statements, Mustapha Hamid noted that the Daily Guide and Statesman newspapers are not sponsored by the current government, and have been in circulation even before the current administration assumed office.
He concluded by stating that President Akufo-Addo holds all the former presidents of the Republic in high regard, and will continue to treat all of them with dignity and respect.
