Founder of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has launched a scathing attack on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The former presidential candidate of the People’s National Convention (PNC) who described President Akufo-Addo as a tyrant said Ghanaians are no longer safe under his administration.

Wading in the ongoing debate of press freedom following an alleged torture and arrest of two ModernGhana journalists, Mr. Ayariga said the President, famed as a “human rights activist” has now “turned out to be a democratic tyrant”.

“Let us remind Nana Addo, the so-called human rights activist, now president, that Ghanaians are not safe under his presidency”, adding, a “human rights activist now a tyrant president”.

“President Nana has brought back the culture of silence”, Mr Ayariga said, asking: “What sort of tyranny is this?”

“Media personnel being harassed, police officials being interdicted, kidnappings, killings, public workers sacked based on false accusations and tagged members of other political parties, corruption and poverty everywhere. Our freedom and justice are under threat. Let’s defend our freedom and justice. Let’s change the deceptive change”, Mr Ayariga rallied.
