Former president John Dramani Mahama has accused the media in Ghana for what he calls hard handedness during his tenure.

According to him, the media linked him to every negative act of his appointees but have been charitable to President Akufo-Addo.

Speaking at the NDC Unity Walk in the Central region over the weekend, Mahama averred the media are now treating the Akufo-Akufo-led government with kid’s gloves and have turned a blind eye to the excesses of current appointees.

“During my tenure, everything someone does they tag the person ‘Mahama boy’ or ‘Mahama girl’ but today the narrative is different. The media refer to people by their names,” he told the crowd.


He said such discrimination does not augur well for good governance.

Mahama has therefore called on the media to discharge their duties without fear or favour since their watchdog role will go a long way to protect the country.
