According to Okudzeto Ablakwa, the president’s specific statement was that some diplomats were taking advantage of the freedom of speech in an attack on the diplomatic corps.
“President Akufo-Addo’s unhinged attack of the diplomatic corps during his message on the state of the nation is most repugnant, illogical, and intolerant.
“He cannot accuse diplomats of joining the national discourse when he was the very person who invited them by begging for debt cancellation after grossly mismanaging the Ghanaian economy.”
According to Ablakwa, the president’s posture can be described as one who was begging for the benevolence of western countries but refusing their advice on downsizing and cutting down “extravagant expenditures as the German Ambassador counseled recently.”

“I hope President Akufo-Addo’s impervious posture this morning does not derail already difficult bilateral negotiations on Ghana’s external debt restructuring.
“President Akufo-Addo must definitely win the prize for the world’s most arrogant beggar,” the MP added.
