In the words of Nana Kwadwo Jantuah, host of Nhyira FM’s morning political program, there’s nothing as depressing as waking up every morning to the realization that Nana Akufo Addo is still the president of Ghana.
Furthermore, he has predicted that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) would also lose additional seats in the 2024 elections owing to their abysmal performance in power.
He boldly said the mere fact that Nana Akufo Addo has two years to complete his tenure is even torturous, to say the least.
On his official Facebook page, he shared thus;
“To wake up and discover that Prez Nana Addo is still in charge is dismal and torturous. The sensation I felt in 2016.”
There are still two (2) years for Akufo-Addo to transfer power to the next president, he noted.
Meanwhile, Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, an aspiring candidate for the General Secretary position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), recently claimed that the Akufo-Addo administration started ruining the economy even before the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the Covidia broke out.
President Akufo-Addo recently described how the coronavirus pandemic had a detrimental effect on the economies of Africa, especially Ghana. Ghana’s president told the international community at the 77th Session of the UN General on Wednesday, September 21 that just as Ghana and other African countries were trying to get out of the pandemic, the Russia invasion of Ukraine happened, compounding the situation.
A portion of Nana Akufo Addo’s speech reads;
“As we grappled with these economic challenges, Russia invasion of Ukraine burst upon us, aggravating an already difficult situation.
“It is not just the dismay that we feel at seeing such deliberate devastation of cities and towns in Europe in the year 2022, we are feeling this war directly in our lives in Africa.
“Every bullet, every bomb, every shell that hits a target in Ukraine, hit our pockets and our economies in Africa.”
However, holding a contrary view, Afriyie-Ankrah said the economy was in tatters before the war. “The credit rating agencies started warning before Russia Ukraine,” he stressed when he had an interview with Johnnie Hughes on TV3.
