The Minority’s criticism comes barely a month after former President John Mahama accused the media in the West African country of treating the Akufo-Addo government with kid gloves. “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,” Mahama bemoaned while addressing supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) after the party’s Unity Walk in the Central Region. Sharing the sentiments of the former president, the Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu expressed serious concerns over what he described as the media’s unwillingness to critically interrogate cases of malfeasance in the government uncovered by the minority.
