The debate on the abuse of Executive powers in the country has captured the news headlines where some Ghanaians including some Human Right Lawyers, Think Tank groups especially the opposition National Democratic Congress, have criticized the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for abuse of powers.
In a recent development, the former President John Dramani Mahama has chastised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for abusing his Executive Powers. According to the Former President, Nana Akufo-Addo is fomenting ethnic discrimination using his Executive powers as President.
The Leader and Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress John Dramani Mahama in a statement said, the action of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is a calculated attempt to dehumanize and disenfranchise innocent Ghanaians from enjoying their citizenship status.
Mr. Mahama has therefore cautioned President Akufo-AKufo to avoid using his Executive powers on Ghanaians who voted him into office. He also called on the President to end the path he has chosen to use the Executive Powers on Ghanaians.
The NDC’s Flagbearer reiterates that, the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government under his leadership will never abuse the Executive Powers on Ghanaians but will rather use them to foster a spirit of peace and unity in Ghana.
Executive power must not be used to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse as is happening under Nana Akufo-Addo. These calculated acts of “dehumanisation, disenfranchising Ghanaians and stripping them of their citizenship” must end. They will surely never happen under a new NDC administration because we will foster a spirit of peace and unity in our nation. John Dramani Mahama said.
