President Akufo-Addo has described himself as the most vilified political leader of this generation.
According to him, his presidency has constantly been subjected to bad-mouthing, vilification, and harsh criticism, which reflects the kind of media attacks he gets on the regular from mainly his opponents and Ghanaians.
Speaking at a special congregation in his honour at the University of Cape Coast, President Akufo-Addo said despite all the vilification, has not tried to subject any citizen to unfair treatment neither has he promoted the culture of silence.
He bemoaned that many media houses and organizations have resorted to publishing dissenting news to tarnish his reputation and records.
Knowledge has never been a gift granted exclusively to one group. We must listen and hear each other more,” he implored.
“I find it ironic that the presidency of a man who has been and continues to be daily the most vilified political figure of his generation can be accused of presiding over a culture of silence.”
“There is no midnight knock on the door in Ghana or authors of dissenting views nor will there be during my presidency”
