The NDC leader is currently touring the northern part of the country. He told the people of the north that Akufo-Addo has taken Ghana’s democracy back by 28-years.
He is thus calling on all Ghanaians to join hands to rescue the country from the tragedies of President Akufo-Addo.
“I, John Dramani Mahama, will restore dignity and independence to our state institutions. I will depoliticise our democratic institutions and make them work effectively and independently for all Ghanaians,” John Mahama posted on social media.

4. Poor Infrastructure record
5. The destruction and politicisation of institutions.
6. Oppressed Parliament under Akufo-Addo

8. Media intimidation
The former president prayed Ghanaians to vote him into power to ensure people are able to express themselves freely, once more, without fear of harassment or death.
YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that President Nana Akufo-Addo has nominated Abdul Mumin Issah to succeed the late Sekondi/Takoradi Mayor, Anthony K. K. Sam, who died after contracting COVID-19.
The President also took drastic action by relieving his District Chief Executives (DCE) of their posts.
In a letter signed by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama, the President named Clement Opoku Gyamfi as the new DCE for the Amansie South District.
