Renowned Investigative journalist Anas Arewmeyaw Anas, has been persecuted by the Akufo-Addo government than any government in Ghana, flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama has said.
“Anas Aremeyaw Anas has never been more persecuted under any government than under this government…and, so, even though President Akufo-Addo said he is going to use the Anas Principle, I think that today, Anas has been more persecuted than he’s ever been”, the former President said in an interview on Class FM on Monday.
The former President added “there are times he [Anas] felt his life threatened; of course, in the kind of things he does, there’s the kind of danger, every day of personal harm to your person but this time, he’s never felt more threatened than he’s ever been in all his career”.
President Nana Akufo-Addo While in opposition as flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, promised to use the Anas Principle to fight corruption.
But according to Mr Mahama, the former president has failed to stick to his key promise on corruption ahead of the 2016 election.
The former President also emphasized that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is adopting a Jehovahs Witness strategy in executing its 2020 campaigns.
“We’re going to emphasise more door-to-door campaigns, house-to-house, and, so, once the campaigns kick off; it has kicked off, we’re going to have our people knocking on people’s doors, going to lorry stations and then speaking to taxi, drivers, speaking to Okada riders, and that kind of thing. It’s going to be like a Jehovah’s Witness kind of thing.”
