Joshua Hamidu Akamba, the National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), claims that President Akufo-Addo has surpassed Idi Amidu as Africa’s most intolerant leader.
Joshua Akamba predicted that the new president would be remembered as a tyrant who persecuted his opponents and journalists.
To him, just as African dictators were removed from power, he must be dealt with in a way that ensures the freedom of expression and speech of those affected by his poor leadership.
He said that the NPP used force to manipulate and steal the election and the people’s mandate.
President Akufo-Addo is going to leave a legacy of dictatorship. He is worst off than Idi Amin. Idi Amin was a military ruler, but we have a civilian rule in Ghana, and yet, what kind of human rights lawyer do we have as a leader? We witnessed the Ayawaso West Wuogon saga, and yet the President failed to implement the recommendations. In a modern democracy, if we have a leader preventing people from expressing their views; we have journalists killed, and if we have others sacked for expressing their views, then we can say he is worst off than Idi Amin and Sadam Hussein.
Idi Amin is regarded as a leader who wreaked havoc not only on his own nation but also on the East African region and the developing world as a whole.
In 1971, he staged a coup that overthrew constitutional civilian rule.
In 1972, he expelled the Asians from Uganda, claiming that they were impeding the advancement of black Ugandans into entrepreneurial and middle-class employment.
Mr. Akamba responded by saying that, despite having a human rights lawyer as President, we are experiencing abuses of authority, hooliganism on the part of government paramilitary groups, and other types of abuses under his rule.
He encouraged journalists to be fearless and brave in exposing the government’s flaws.
