Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson believes the Akufo-Addo government is intolerant to opposing views and criticism reason why they have coiled back into their shells.
According to her, the erstwhile Mahama government tolerated their views which embolden them to criticize, organize demonstrations and speak truth to power, unlike the current government.
Sharing her view on Twitter as an indirect response to people who are saying celebrities who used to be loud during Mahama’s tenure have gone quiet, Lydia Forson said they are unable to say much because the government is not ready to tolerate divergent views.
She wrote: Truth is, so many of us were only vocal during Mahama’s government because he(they) seemed more tolerant to criticism. This government (and their followers) in comparison seem more intolerant to opposing opinions and criticism. This is unfortunately why many don’t say as much.
