- Flagbearer of the opposition NDC John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned the leadership style of President Akufo-Addo
- The former president says the current situation has visited an unprecedented hardship on Ghanaians
Former president John Mahama has criticised President Akufo-Addo’s leadership style insisting the country is on a “downward trend”.
According to him, many Ghanaians are angered by the leadership style deployed by the Nana Addo government.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer said citizens no longer feel safe living in Ghana.
He further accused the government of intimidating and oppressing journalists, something he described as a threat to democracy.
He added that the country is on a downward trend, with the high cost of living making life unbearable for Ghanaians.
“Our country is on the downward trend, with an unbearable increase in the cost of living; the citizenry doesn’t feel safe and yet Government continues to oppress and intimidate the people including journalists,” Mahama said in a Facebook post:
“This state of affairs is a threat to our democracy especially as the moral society remain unconcerned and surprisingly silent on the developments in our country, Ghana.”
The ex-president went on to urge Ghanaians to turn up in their numbers at the party’s demonstrations dubbed ‘kum yen preko’.
“I welcome, endorse and I encourage all to step out tomorrow and join the #Kumy3npr3ko demonstration organized by the Coalition for Social Justice.
“There is a lot of pent-up anger among Ghanaians and it’s beginning to manifest even among the security services. This manifestation gives all the allied groups participating in it, the opportunity to vent.”
