Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has divided public opinion with her recent call for more criticisms against the government of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
The award-winning actress in article condemned sections of Ghanaians for failing to find their voices on critical issues under the Akufo-Addo administration.
According to her, while Ghanaians took a stern stance in vehemently criticizing the previous government for its perceived wrongdoings, there seems to be a silence over similar or even worse offences committed under the Akufo-Addo government.
