- Ex-president John Mahama has expressed concern about nepotism in the current government
- According to him, he was accused of same even though only one member of his family served in his government
Former President John Dramani Mahama, has expressed worry about the level of nepotism in the Akufo-Addo-led government.
According to him, he is also surprised about how Ghanaians have been patient with the current administration for over a year now.
Addressing the members of the United Kingdom (UK) branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), he slammed various groups in Ghana for keeping mute over incidents in the Akufo-Addo government.
He further wondered why there is hypocrisy in politics in Ghana.
According to him, his administration was unfairly judged when he was accused of nepotism, as at the time, only one blood relation of his served in his government.
“I never ever though that Ghanaians will tolerate the level of nepotism in the government we see today, it’s terrible, I never ever thought. In our case, one of our own said I was running a family and friends government and NPP took it up.
This was when I had no blood relation of mine in government except for some lonely deputy minister, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, my aunt’s daughter."
He went ahead to wonder why standards appear to differ whenever there is a change in government. To him, hypocrisy in politics often transcends to the entire country overtime.
