The National Chairman for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has questioned the government following the recent attacks on journalists. According to him, journalists and citizens should not be tortured it suffer for criticizing the government. Mr. Ofosu Ampofo noted that this is the same issue that brought the June 4 revolution.
"A high level of unemployment and the virtual strangulation of free speech is becoming synonymous with what occasioned the June 4 revolution, so we are saying the culture of silence must be dealt with. Individual Ghanaians must not be subjected to torture for criticizing the government. People must not be looked out for on social media and arrested and incarcerated by National Security,” Mr. Ofosu Ampofo bemoaned.
The president too have noted that the safety of journalists are one of his worries and that he will see to it that journalists work under a convenience condition. He noted further that criticizing journalists does not mean they are being attacked. According to him, every individual is worth criticizing.
