POLITICS: Mahama Takes A Swipe At Akufo-Addo
The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress in this year's presidential elections, John Mahama has described his main opponent, President Akufo-Addo as a 'democratic dictator'.
In the Former President's view, the president has infringed upon media freedom and cracked down on divergent opinions since assuming office.
John Mahama was speaking at a mini-rally at Garu in the Upper East Region.
He urged the electorate to vote against the Akufo-Addo administration during this year's Elections.
"Nana Akufo-Addo parades himself as a human rights lawyer but he is a kind of democratic dictator", he said.
Mr. Mahama also questioned the government's commitment to free speech claiming it had sabotaged an interview he was to have on Abusua FM.
"My running mate was going on a radio station to do an interview and you know what they did, they jammed the frequency of the station". Mr.Mahama claimed without evidence.
"I was going on the same station to do an interview. I was supposed to start at 8am and at 8am they jammed the frequency of the station". The former President added.
