The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, (NDC) has indirectly waded into the Sammy Gyamfi 'I can't breathe' cartoon brouhaha.

He shared a cartoon that was done by 3 News' Tilapia depicting the violence that took place during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election in 2019.

In a post shared on his Facebook page, Mahama captioned it "The tale of two cartoons" which was basically comparing the two equally sensitive cartoons.

Mahama who did not comment directly on the Floyd-themed cartoon, appeared to suggest people criticising the NDC communicator are playing double standards.

In comparison to the earlier sensitive cartoon by Tilapia, Mahama raised the issue of sensitivity in that cartoon which was overlooked by Ghanaians.

Thus, pointing out the double standards of Ghanaians and how they are treating the two issues differently.

This throwback cartoon shared by Mahama drew mixed reactions from Ghanaians who shared their thoughts.

Kelvin believes Mahama is the voice of the voiceless.

Williams said he decided not to sign up for the new voters' register but due to Mahama and Sammy Gyamfi's cartoon, he definitely would do that to ensure that he votes against him in December 2020.

Kofi in his own words described the NDC as a double standard party.

Yaw Preko said the post was irresponsible.

Afia believes Mahama's account has been hacked.

Speaking on the issue on Onua TV’s Maakye, the former president said, the dubious means make the voters' register unclean.
