Former President John Dramani Mahama has told President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that the people of Ghana are tired of the tyrannical, dictatorial majority rule that they are witnessing.
Mr Mahama said this in a meeting with the clergy on the E-levy policy proposal in the 2022 budget statement.
The 2020 presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) indicated that the E-levy proposal is not the problem. Rather, the government’s attitude and conduct in always trying to bulldoze its way out without factoring the concerns of the people.
He asked the government to stop the arrogant and unyielding posture it has adopted.
“If you get the details of our concerns you will understand the view from where we are coming from. I do think this meeting is timely, it is good to hear from all sides.
“By the time you have hear what we have to say you will realize that the problem is much deeper than what you think. That is why I have brought some of the MPs . That fight was a fight for democracy , there is no way a speaker can sit in the chair, relinquish the chair, let somebody else come and sit and take a vote in something that he has presided over.
