The National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yaw Opare Addo has bemoaned the hypocritical attitude of Ghanaians for remaining silent under the hardship of the New Patriotic Party.
He further alleged that some prominent journalists have been bribed not to speak ill of the government during a recent interview on Happy FM.
“We want a debate from Nana Addo and Mahama. And an independent journalist to moderate the debate. They need to ask questions. Mahama allowed people to interrogate the issues so the issues came to the forefront. Today what do we see? The NPP is paying off some journalists. It is an open secret. The NDC challenges him to a debate on corruption, infrastructure and economic management,” he charged.
Comparing the John Mahama administration to that of Akufo-Addo he said “You cannot compare the four years of Mahama to the four years of Nana Addo. How can one borrow 120 billion in three years and five months? Where are the three hundred and fifty (350) schools he promised? People cannot criticize this government not because they don’t want to but because they are in fear. We are gradually moving into the era of silence. Nobody can speak”.
