Paul Adom-Otchere, host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV has said President Akufo-Addo has set a standard that is likely to stay for a longtime.
According to him the president has been making regular visits to radio stations to speak to Ghanaians and answer questions, an event that rarely occurred in the past.
“With what President Akufo-Addo has been doing, he’s completely changed the model of presidential accountability to the people and I think that the model is going to stay for a long time to come. Here’s the president who is granting interviews all the time”, the broadcaster remarked.
“For those of us that have covered the Fourth Republic, we started with presidential press conferences; it didn’t really materialize and communication between the president of Ghana and the people of Ghana during the period that he is president was very scarce. We put up a question at the constitution review committee back in the day asking why the president cannot appear before parliament and take presidential question time”, he noted.
