Former president and 2024 flagbearer of the NDC John Mahama has accused the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government of putting Ghana's democracy at risk.

This, according to the one-time president, is been done through undemocratic actions and prioritizing political gains over democratic norms.

In a social media post on Monday, April 15, Mahama stated that "The Nana Akufo Addo and Bawumia-led administration has crossed many red lines in our democratic practice.”

Mahama stressed that on numerous occasions, the ruling NPP administration has taken actions that undermine Ghana's democratic institutions and values in order to achieve political ends.

"Their deliberate acts of putting political convenience ahead of democratic consolidation have left Ghana's 4th Republic the poorer for it," Mahama stated.

The former president's comments are the latest criticism from the opposition NDC of President Akufo-Addo's style of governance.

Particularly, this comes following criticism from the NDC that the President’s current appointment to the judicial bench is full of party sympathizers.

With accusations of economic mismanagement among other things, the opposition party are urging Ghanaians to vote them into office in the upcoming polls.
