Former President John Dramani Mahama has hit back at the founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Otabil, over his recent claims that he is now tired of watching local TV stations because of too much politic of the networks.
But the former president who saw the preacher as one of his serial critiques disagrees saying he Dr. Otabil is now tired of watching TV because his “darling government [NPP] is super incompetent and so you’re tired of hearing the analysis”
“that’s the hypocrisy we face in our country” – President Mahama fired
According to John Mahama, the same people who aggressively criticized his administration have lost their voices to the wrongdoings of the Akufo-Addo led administration.
Addressing some NDC supporters in the UK, Mr. Mahama said he is surprised at the way the media and other prominent individuals are tolerating the level of cronyism under the NPP administration.
“Something is pardonable when one government is in power but when another is in power it’s unpardonable, things that the media would have been so loud about under my administration, it happens every day and it’s like it’s business as usual. That is the hypocrisy of our civil society and religious and traditional leaders, everybody is quiet, suddenly some say they don’t watch TV anymore and that they watch animals.”
“In our time they were not watching animals, they were watching political discussions. You’re now tired of too much politics…you’ll be tired, because your darling government is super incompetent and so you’re tired of hearing the analysis, that’s the hypocrisy we face in our country. So let us not buy into their propaganda,”
