A livid Senior Statesman has called out President Akufo Addo over what he calls untruths and external control from an insensitive New Patriotic Party(NPP).
President Nana Akufo Addo has come under wide backlash over the state of the Economy and the Domestic Debt Exchange Program extended to individual pensioner bondholders.
According to the senior statesman and former local government administrator Ernest Asamoah Yaw, the president and his communicators have to take the public flack in good faith and re-examine his ways.
“Our president gave us so many promises but I am sure his party prevents him from taking serious action. It makes him a liar. It makes him irresponsible and it makes the president useless. Not only him but all the MPs,” the eighty one year old fumed speaking to host Julius Caesar Anadem on Ultimate FM’s Cup Of Tea Show.
The octogenarian further demanded that the president quickly shelved any investment under the National Cathedral Project insisting the monument which has so far swallowed tax payers money to the tune of three hundred and thirty nine million cedis (GH₵339.003.064.86) is misplaced.
“Can you imagine that the president of a black African Country like Ghana with all these problems… As we are talking there are some school children studying under trees… they don’t have chairs to sit on; they don’t have books and our president is building the biggest church in Ghana. A cathedral. Do you think this makes sense,” he queried intently?
“Do you think building a cathedral for a black nation which needs everything; that imports used goods; that needs food; and the president is going to spend money to build a cathedral for the whole nation… Do you call this president a wise president?Caesar, I feel so sad. Is he aware of the problems of Ghanaians? He probed.
Mr. Asamoah Yaw called for the state to question the president on his appointment of more than 19 ministers to cabinet against the constitution and creating the highest number of ministries and ministerial portfolios in the country.
