Akufo-Addo blows macro-economic horns at media encounter


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has praised the media for holding his government accountable and publishing its policies.

He said even though he has been “one of the greatest victims of irresponsible sections of the media, and I refer to those who have created an industry from spewing calumnies, falsehoods and outright fabrications against my person, I do not regret…my role in the repeal of the old discredited law.”

Nana Akufo-Addo as Attorney-General under the John Kufuor government spearheaded the repeal of the criminal libel law under which some journalists were arrested and detained by government.
