On Monday, March 20, 2023, Aseidu Nketia gave the “Real State of the Nation Address,” in which he said that the Nana Addo-Bawumia-led government had manufactured immense misery for Ghanaians.
He claims that the state of the economy under Nana Addo and Dr. Bawumia has deteriorated to the point of creating significant economic problems and a high cost of living.

According to him, a bag of cement that cost GH 27 in December 2016 is now going for an astounding GH 90.

He said: “Also, a bag of cement which sold for GH¢27 in December 2016 is today selling at a staggering GH¢90 and last, but not least, a sanitary pad which used to sell for an average GH¢2.50 in December 2016 is today selling for GH¢20.”

When everything is said and done, this is the true State of the Nation. This is what we feel when we go to the market. This is what we feel in our pockets,” he noted.

Nketia, also known as General Mosquito, argued that despite having access to a wealth of resources, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-administration Addo’s has failed.
