President Nana Akufo-Addo has accused some civil society organisations of campaigning against his re-election bid in the 2020 general elections but says he will nonetheless give an ear to their commentaries.
Speaking at a meeting with members of the Ghana Anti-corruption Coalition at the Jubilee House, Mr Akufo-Addo assured the CSOs: “I’ve not shirked, in any way, my commitment that we should try and develop a state whose agencies act not in the personal interest of those who man them at any given time but in the interest of those who they serve”.
“I’ve not retreated in any way from that”, he insisted.
The president, however, pointed out to the CSOs that “I think, also, there are some things that none of us can overlook: the highly-politicised atmosphere in which many of these accusations are raised in Ghana” “Some of you even, some of the CSOs are privy to and complicit [of], where the line between them being independent commentary and being politically-related commentary, is very very thin and, in many many cases, there are lines that are, in fact, crossed”, the president complained.FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA
