A Ghanaian investigative journalist, Manasseh Awuni Azure, didn't mince words in his article condemning John Dramani Mahama's "do or die" statement. He condemned the comment and described it as an "idiotic expression" which when, not properly understood by the party supporters can translate into violence.
Reacting to Manasseh Awuni Azure's article on John Mahama's "do or die" statement on 'HOT NEWS' on Pan Africa television, the Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central Constituency, Comrade Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, indicated that he has just read a very useless article, which is unfortunately written by Manasseh Awuni Azure.
According to Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, it is preposterous to attempt to put this harmless statement by John Dramani Mahama to that reckless, irresponsible, and violent statement made by President Akufo Addo in 2012.
He indicated that he has seen the desperate attempt by a section of the Ghanaian media that, for them to attack John Dramani Mahama, they must put apar his statement to the reckless comment by Akufo Addo in 2012.
"I have just read a very useless article, unfortunately, written by my friend and a brother, Manasseh Awuni Azure."
Comrade Murtala Mohammed said that he never saw an article (he stands to be corrected) written by Manasseh Awuni Azure in the "all die be die" statement by Akufo Addo.
He stated that if Manasseh Awuni Azure wants people to believe him, then he shouldn't have voted for Akufo Addo, and he stated publicly that he voted for Akufo Addo in the 2012 and 2016 elections.
He revealed that Manasseh Awuni Azure published that lie about the Ford expedition car on the day John Dramani Mahama lost his mother. How unsympathetic someone could be, so much a person, writing this, he has a challenge.
"I remember he published a book about John Dramani Mahama before the 2020 election and promised to do the same for Akufo Addo before the election, but he never did it. So, we won't take such comments from him anymore."
Comrade Murtala Mohammed added that he is not surprised about Manasseh Awuni Azure's article on John Mahama's "do or die" statement because there is that deep-seated hatred that some journalists have against John Dramani Mahama. So, they want to put his statement apar with that of Akufo Addo to justify their condemnation of John Dramani Mahama, which they freely do anyway.
