The senior lecturer at the Department of History and Political Studies at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Kwasi Amakye Boateng says that the worst mistake Ghanaians made was voting for Akufo Addo.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi-based Akoma FM, the lecturer lambasted the president over his refusal to pay heed to the concerns of Ghanaians.
According to Mr. Boateng, the president and his NPP government are to be blamed for the current economic crisis in Ghana. He also added that the president is aware of where and who to blame but has turned deaf ear to every suggestion and lamentation from the citizens.
“It is this government that has caused the mess we are in today. And some of them know where the fault is yet the President is saying he will not listen to anybody.”
“The President is insensitive. He doesn’t care. We made a mistake putting someone like that into that Office. He has never seen hardship since infancy so he cannot empathize with anybody.
“It was a terrible mistake voting for someone like him. For a very simple reason that he cannot empathize with the suffering of the majority of Ghanaians. If he is someone who has gone through hardship before, he will know what anger feels like,” he said in Twi.
