Don’t describe journalists as terrorists – Mahama


Former President John Dramani Mahama has called on Ghanaians to desist from tagging journalists as terrorists.

His comment comes after Justice Eric Baah in a ruling in a defamatory suit by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas against Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central Region, described Anas’ works as investigative terrorism.

But delivering a lecture on financing political campaigns, at the UPSA auditorium on March 22, Mr Mahama called on all and sundry to uphold the country’s democracy by desisting from describing journalists who have been breaking their backs for the country as terrorists.
We must also uphold human rights, including freedom of expression and not be describing some journalists as terrorists,” Mr Mahama advised.
