President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has come under fire from political analyst Kweku Adu-Gyamfi for how he has handled Ghana’s economy.
He claims that the president has damaged Ghana’s reputation to the point where “bad characters” like Kennedy Agyapong and Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, who are running for president with the New Patriotic Party (NPP), want to lead the nation.
On July 19, 2023, Adu Gyamfi claimed in an interview with Original TV that Akufo-Addo was also ruining the New Patriotic Party (NPP), his own party.
“Akufo-Addo has made running for president easy, so now everyone wants the job when they wake up. In order to get control of the president and enrich himself, his family, his wife, his concubines, and everything else, he (Akufo-Addo) came to deceive us.
“This guy (Akufo-Addo) has messed up the nation and our economy,” a critic said. He has tarnished this nation’s reputation, and no one is speaking out about it. Because of this, Kennedy Agyapong, a character, is asking for our support in running for president. This shows how cheaply government has become.
Why should we permit someone like Kennedy Agyapong to even climb a podium to proclaim he wants to be this country’s president if it weren’t for the fact that Ghana is now affordable? It is the NPP that was built in China and was so inexpensive that Kennedy Agyapong hasn’t insulted anyone in this nation. That is why they have individuals like Kennedy Agyapong who want to be the leader of such a scandalous political party, he claimed.
According to the political analyst, Ghana’s reputation has become so bad that Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, the former minister of agriculture who failed to put into effect a straightforward project called Planting for Food and Jobs, wants to lead the nation as president.
He continued by saying that the NPP would eliminate everyone associated with the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration in the party’s next presidential primaries if it still had any credibility.
