Show Us The Real Akufo-Addo We Know In Your Second Term – Manasseh To Prez Elect

Published

on


Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has thrown a challenge to President elect, Nana Akufo-Addo to show Ghanaians a bit of his real self they used to know before he grabbed power.

In a post on Facebook, Manasseh cited some corruption scandals that had characterised the President’s first term and how he had watched on while few pocketed the chunk of the country’s money.

He called on him to be decisive and bold in leading Ghana towards a path of prosperity for all.

See full post below:

Dear President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,

I write to congratulate you on winning the 2020 presidential election. I was excited and hopeful when you first won the election in 2016. Unfortunately, I don’t feel the same way about this victory. I’m ambivalent about your second term, and the reasons are not difficult to find. In your first term, you knew you would come back to seek our votes, yet the kind of governance you gave us was unimpressive, to say the least. You practically called our bluff. In 2024, you will not need our votes. Some of your appointees have their political umbilical cords are tied to your presidency.

They know that even if the NPP wins in the next election, they will have no chance of landing lucrative jobs. For such people, there is a lot of motivation to loot as much as they can and retire or venture into something else. For this reason, your second term can get worse than we saw in the first term. But it can also get better, Mr. President. Your second term can get better if you care about your legacy. Since the days of your predecessor, I have always maintained that any idiot can borrow money to build hospitals or pay fees, especially when there is always an avenue to pocket a chunk of it. One does not need to be a genius of a leader to do that. What a true leader does is to inspire hope by creating a society of meritocracy, by creating and atmosphere that rewards the ingenuity, creativity and hard work of its citizens, and by taking decisions that are in the national interest but may not be pleasing to his party and sycophants. So your second term can get better if you pay attention to the fact that a wealthy country such as ours is very miserable because its resources are stolen and hoarded by a select few while our youth see every sunrise as a painful reminder of their hopelessness.

It can get better if you impersonate a bit of the no-nonsense disposition of the Nana Akufo-Addo of yore, and employ that against those destroying the country under your watch. Your second term will get better if you become the Akufo-Addo we thought we knew, and not the President Akufo-Addo we know. And your hands are freer now to be your true self than when you had another election before you. For a president seeking re-election, acting tough against delinquent and influential appointees is like killing the tsetse fly that perches on the scrotum. But now, you’re free from those threats and political blackmail. So let’s see a bit of the Akufo-Addo that was marketed to us in 2016.

Let us see the Akufo-Addo who is a believer of the rule of law, not one that believes and promotes the rule of thuggery; an Akufo-Addo who believes in press freedom, and not one that believes only in press freedom favourable to him. And finally, let us see a new NPP under your leadership. Let us see the democratic and civilised NPP of old, the one that was attractive to intellectuals but still maintained its core base. Let us see the NPP that gives men and women of valour and principles a chance, and not one that has been hijacked rogues and questionable characters because of their dubious wealth. If you remember my “Ogyam” epistle, I said you were becoming stronger, but the party was becoming weaker. A party founded on the core principles of democracy and good governance should not be using “North Korean” principles in dealing with and eliminating candidates who want to either lead the party or contest for parliament because they are not the favourites of a few. In this election, the NPP voters have shown the party “a little bit of Atiwa” and I hope you and the party will pick some useful lessons from there.

I wish you good luck and pledge my unalloyed support to make your second term a success. I intend to support you not by joining the innumerable courtiers of paid and unpaid praise-singers of the administration. Like the charge given to the Prophet of God in Ezekiel 3:17, I intend to point out to you what’s going wrong.

But if you do things worthy of praise and defending, I will not withhold that from you as I have done in the past. God bless you and bless our Homeland Ghana.

Yours sincerely,

Manasseh Azure Awuni

Your friend

Villagers, I’ll Sack All Of You And Close Down The Radio Station – Kennedy Agyapong Descends On Ash FM Workers

Published

on


Assin Central Lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong has once again lashed out at his employees, albeit, this time Ash FM.

Speaking on the Attitude Show, the controversial legislator accused his employers of lacking civility and manners and further described them as criminals who steal from his business.

“Let’s come home, Ash FM got me very sad this weekend. The next time I go to Kumasi I will close the radio station; I will sack everyone. It is filled with typical villagers. Let me tell you why I say they are villagers who are disgracing Ashanti’s. I am travelling and as soon as I get back, I will close the station. We were listening to the news on our way to Takoradi, we had tuned in to Ash FM and they were reporting on someone who had been robbed. They spent the time between 6 to 6:30 running a commentary about how the person was attacked and beaten up,” he was quoted by ghanaweb.

“As soon as he finished another guy came to continue with sports and the pace with which he was speaking, it was as though he was running a live commentary. I called Kenneth to find out what was going on because I don’t have their numbers. I allow them to work; everybody to work. But they are thieves, criminals. About 80% of journalists in Ghana are thieves. The guy was giving sports news and he was shouting throughout, I inquired why he was doing that and the answer I was given is that ‘this is how we do it in Kumasi.’ But it is not true,” he fumed.

“These are the same people who will tell Akufo-Addo to fix the country, have you fixed your bad character? Have you fixed your horrible attitude?” he quizzed.

Our Own People Keep Lying To Akufo-Addo And Ghanaians Aren’t Happy – NPP Man Laments

Published

on


A communications team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwesi Botchwey has bemoaned how President Akufo-Addo has transformed from being firm and strong to a more relaxed person who watches on while recklessness abounds in his government.

Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he bemoaned how the President who was known to be a no-nonsense persona, has suddenly become more relaxed; urging him to be up and doing.

He noted that appointees of the President continue to lie to him making everything look good in his eyes meanwhile Ghanaians aren’t happy.

According to Mr Botchwey, the ongoing #fixthecountry campaign should be taken seriously by the government.

To him, it doesn’t mean the government has failed to perform, rather, it means Ghanaians want more to be done.

“Ghanaians trust in Nana Addo and just like in 1995 he led the ‘Kumepreko’ crusade, Ghanaians want him to do same now. That energy he used is no longer there. It seems the President has relaxed. His action has reduced. He must crack the whip so Ghanaians would know that he is serious. All those who are leading galamsey especially, your appointees, must be punished, so it serves as a deterrent. Galamsey is now a pandemic, and Nana Addo should deal with those who are leading the galamsey,” he was reported by rainbowradioonline.

He continued: “What Ghanaians are demanding is accountability. Those you have employed are lying to you and you must punish them. That is what Ghanaians are saying,” he added.
