Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has taken a swipe at President Akufo Addo after he stated in plain words that he will not spend the taxpayers’ money on fighting the floods in Accra.
Floods in the nation’s capital have become much of a concern for citizens and the torrential rains in this rainy season are making it worse for citizens.
The majority of people living in Accra for the past week have been forced out of their homes with many losing their properties to the flood that has caused NADMO to appeal to the President for permission to demolish houses built in waterways.
The President in a speech during a recent visit to Canada stated that the attitude of Ghanaians is the reason why he won’t spend a dime in fighting the flood issues in the nation’s capital.
According to Nana Addo, the appalling acts of most people throwing rubbish into gutters is the major cause of floods and until the ordinary Ghanaians put a stop to that attitude, he won’t bother fighting it in the first place.
His comment in refusing to help curb the situation caused many Ghanaians to attack him with Efia Odo pouring her bitterness on the President.
The latest media personality to join Efia Odo to put the President in his rightful place over the comment he made is actress Lydia Forson.
The actress reacting to the President’s comment in a series of tweets mentioned that this wasn’t the President’s stance when he wanted to be President.
The actress said Ghanaians are not dirty people from time immemorial and cannot be blamed for the current situation.
He called on President Akufo-Addo and his government to examine how the country got to this point.
She further posited that the President never mentioned any of these during his campaign for the presidency.
