Mahama blasts civil society for ‘keeping quiet’ over NPP governance
Former President John Mahama has taken a swipe at Civil Society groups in the country for keeping quite over the current government’s misgovernace.
He claimed that civil society groups change the rules depending who is in power. "You don’t change the rules depending on who is in power,” he said.
“Ghana belongs to all of us… whoever is president, whoever forms the governance, we must hold them to the same standard of accountability. Civil society has gone quiet, moral society gone quiet …. " he said.
He also accused president Akufo Addo of engaging in nepotism and also running a bloated government.
"The thing is in politics, be careful what you say because tomorrow it will come to haunt you; and that is exactly what is haunting them [NPP]…Now today relatives everywhere and when you raise it — nepotism — they say 'no it doesn't matter if it's the President's relative. It depends on whether they are qualified,” president Mahama said.
