Keta Tidal Wave: Akufo-Addo Cannot Comment On Every Issue – Gyampo



Professor Ransford Gyampo, Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana has said President Akufo-Addo cannot be commenting on every issue in the country.

According to him, it is for this very reason the President has appointed persons to be in charge of various jurisdictions to deal with issues that comes up.

President Akufo-Addo has come under fire for his seeming silence on the recent tidal wave that hit the people of Keta.

The opposition NDC has been questioning the mandate of the President wondering why he’s quick to react to issues that occur in other countries yet put a blind eye on local issues.

However, Prof Gyampo insists the President cannot be heard speaking on every issue that arises in the country.

“The president of Ghana has the mandate of the people of Ghana. He is answerable to the people of Ghana on matters of governance, but he cannot govern alone. He must always assemble a team of appointees together with other elected officials to govern with. Now, these appointees and the other elected officials must work to provide immediate or direct responses to matters that affect their respective jurisdiction. The president must not be heard commenting responding to every problem confronting every part of the country,” he said in an interview with ghanaweb.
