Former President John Dramani Mahama has penned an open letter to his successor, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on the rising spate of free speech criminalisation in the country.
The former President cites the cases of Ahmed Hussein Suale, Captain Smart and Oheneba Boamah Bennie as evidence of the “disturbing incidents”.
“President Akufo-Addo, you cannot continue to oppress the people, criminalize speech when these matters are essentially civil in nature, if you feel offended by them,” part of the open letter read.
