Former president John Dramani Mahama has said poor governance under Nana Akufo-Addo-led NPP administration has triggered a crisis of lack of confidence among Ghanaians in the country's democracy.
During an interview with popular TV personality KSM, he said because of rot in the system every Ghanaian thinks all politicians are liars.
"If I did one-tenth of what they have done these last eight years, I’m sure that I would have been pilloried and crucified on a cross by now. There’s a bit of hypocrisy in it," the NDC flagbearer for the 2024 polls said.
