The presidential pardon granted the Montie FM presenter and two panelists has got private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw, to embark on a 10-day hunger strike.
The disgruntled private lawyer has revealed that during his hunger strike, he will also be embarking on a nationwide campaign against President Mahama ahead of the December elections.
President Mahama is documented to have pardoned the three inmates under "compassionate grounds" after advice from the council of state.
“President Mahama will pay dearly politically for free the Montie 3; he cannot do things to please his party to the detriment of majority of Ghanaians,” he fumed.
