The president took out time to caution Ghanaians against encouraging social media lies about his government which have been damaging his reputation.

Freedom of expression which is widely practised in Ghana seems to have gotten too much for President John Mahama that he has begun complaining. The President has observed that his critics hide behind social media to instigate hatred among the public towards his government by manufacturing lies about his administration.

He explained that people now take to social media to give vent to their bias on the most irrelevant issues with all their fingers pointing at his government, all in the name of freedom of expression. Addressing some Ghanaian residents in the UK during his recent visit there, Mahama said that most Ghanaians only know how to accuse the government of corruption but without any facts to back their claims.

Mahama went as far as saying that people now take their marital frustrations out on him on social media all in the name of exposing corruption. During his address, he said that, “…When you have a country like Ghana where everybody is free to discuss corruption, if you wake up and you are angry with your husband or wife you take it out on the President”.

The president also complained that his appointees are always attacked on social media by unknown accounts especially when a corruption issue has become topical. He has called on Ghanaians to drop such acts and pay close attention to the positive achievements realized by his government other than roaming the social media waiting for the slightest opportunity to give vent to their personal anger.

He further said during his address that he is ready and politically willing to investigate, expose, and sanction corruption, and that people should not be scared to report officials found culpable. He added that the Attorney General’s (AG) Department was working on the Whistle Blower’s Amendment Bill and Witness Protection Scheme, which will ensure easy flow of information, and most especially safety for witnesses who expose such acts.
