Barely nine months into office, President Nana Akufo-Addo appears to be the most talked about personality in the country. From opposition leaders to citizen and back to his own party members- the NPP. The President who seems rather calm on issues has come under barrages of criticisms from all local bodies who are concerned with the growth of the country, Ghana.
Topmost of the allegations are the surprises of signs showing his weakness in addressing certain issues many thought he would act ‘right’ as per what people have perceived him to be.
From the contaminated fuel disaster at BOST to not dealing with perception of insecurity in the country, everything has been thrown at him.
Though not his first time, Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyepong says the president should be careful because most of those he has surrounded himself with are sycophants whose sole interest is to use his name to further their corrupt agenda.
Speaking on Oman FM’s Boiling Point program last Thursday, Mr. Agyepong, said part of the reasons why the NDC lost the December polls was because of the refusal of party members to speak out against the corrupt behavior of Ibrahim Mahama. He add that, “he will not sit and allow that to happen to the president.”
According to him, one Duke Ofori-Attah and Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko have hijacked the president from everyone and are using their positions to engage in acts that could derail the party’s fortunes and sink the president’s image.
…”The President should watch the people he has surrounded himself with….If NDC had been bold and condemned the likes of Ibrahim Mahama and Randy Abbey they wouldn’t have found themselves in Opposition”
Mr. Agyepong said he will continue speaking the truth until he dies and nothing will stop him.
“I will plead with NPP especially those who are closer to him to be courageous and tell him the truth because your pretentious deeds are destroying the man,” he added.
