A group calling itself the Concerned Citizens of Okyeman are demonstrating at Asamankese in the Eastern region against former President John Mahama over the ‘Akyem Sakawa’ saga.

Mr. Mahama’s sharing of article by Bolga Central Member of Parliament Isaac Adongo on Facebook in which he labelled some individuals in government involved in the controversial Agyapa deal as ‘Sakawa-Akyem boys’ has sparked uproar among members of the ruling New Patriotic Party and other groups.

President Akufo-Addo in response to the labelling complained to Catholic Bishops at a meeting at the Jubilee House to condemn the former President.

The President said: “It is completely unacceptable. If I were to get up to make comments about Northerners or Gonjas, you can imagine the uproar that would be in the country.” A comment the opposition also referred to as tribalistic against Northerner”.
