Former President John Mahama says Ghanaians who criticise Akufo-Addo led administration are not witches.
According to him, Ghanaians have every right to criticise the government anytime they feel things are not done correctly.
“We know that all of us are hard working Ghanaians and when you criticise your government it is not because you are witches. Nobody is a witch.
“When you criticise government it is because government is supposed to deliver for you. And so when government is not delivering you have the right to criticise your government,” the former President was addressing NDC supporters at Sogakope.
Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has stated that she never tagged Ghanaians as witches for complaining about economic hardship under the Akufo-Addo led administration.
According to her, she ”merely touted the NPP government’s achievements as remarkable and tangible and asserted that only blind propagandists would feign ignorance of these visible achievements which were obvious and touched every home in the country”.
The Ablekuma West constituency MP, Ursula Owusu, was reported to have said that, only witches are complaining of hardship in Ghana under the Nana Addo government.
However, in a press statement, she indicated that she didn’t make such a reference but she only charged the NPP youth to trumpet President Akufo-Addo’s achievements.
She also urged the public to disregard false media reports and treat them with the contempt they deserve.
The Minister also labeled as ‘false’ media reports which circulated on social media and demanded an apology and retraction from media houses who published the story.
