Ghanaians going through difficult times but that’s not my fault – Akufo-Addo
Although Ghanaians are going through a terrible moment, President Akufo-Addo has stated that he is not to blame.
While acknowledging that the current economic environment is difficult for residents, he has exonerated himself of any blame.
“I acknowledge that Ghanaians are going through a terrible moment; some people are attempting to blame it on me, but you know that is not the truth. “Yet they’ll keep saying it,” he said on Saturday, December 19.
A segment of the population has expressed dissatisfaction with price increases for some vital items, lack of access to some social services, and improving quality of living that is negatively impacting their life.
The administration has blamed the Covid-19 epidemic, which has ravaged numerous nations throughout the world, for the country’s economic woes over the last year.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has claimed that this is not the case, claiming that the NPP government is only exploiting it as a diversion from its poor management.
According to Isaac Adongo, a senior member of the party, the Covid-19 epidemic benefited the Akufo-Addo regime more than it harmed Ghanaians.
The Bolgatanga Central MP, speaking at an NDC Public Forum on December 9, stated that while the epidemic caused hardships for Ghanaians, it provided an opportunity for the NPP to improve their economic management efforts.
“I’ve always stated these individuals are really fortunate because they are Covid-19’s, close pals. Covid-19 benefited these folks more than it harmed Ghanaians.
“And all the evidence point to the idea that Ghana is heading in the wrong path in 2019, and that dealing with propaganda and public relations has become nearly difficult because the truth will expose you,” Isaac Adongo said.
President Akufo-Addo, on the other hand, is opposed to such viewpoints.
During the opening of an NPP constituency office complex at Juaben in the Ashanti Region, he was addressing to citizens.
He remained optimistic, though, that “if you all support this government’s agenda, we will be able to turn things around.”
Initiatives like the GhanaCares Obaatampa program, he claims, would assist to alleviate the crisis if Ghanaians rally behind his administration.
At the event, he urged delegates to do their best to protect the party’s gains so far and work towards a successful election 2024 campaign devoid of hindrances.
