- A think-tank is calling on Nana Addo to resign or be impeached
- The group says times are tough under the NPP administration
- An impeachment process can only be triggered by parliament
President Akufo-Addo has been urged to resign as commander-in-chief due to what has been seen to be the growing trend of corruption under his administration.
The call is coming from a think-tank called Caucus for Democratic Governance-Ghana (CGH-GH) which has warned of an action to impeach the president if he fails to step aside.
Head of this think-tank, Dr E.K. Hayford has issued a statement to this effect stating that the cost of living under the NPP administration is severely unbearable.
From the high cost of fuel to the shut down of the University of Ghana Medical Centre, the group believes the current NPP administration just does not have Ghanaians at heart.
The statement believes that "Ghanaians are confronted by cases of corruption by your Government."
In fact, the think tank believes Ghanaians are so mad about "The $2.5 million digital addressing System; the $89/179 million Kelni GVG and Ministry of Communication scandal; the NHIA $3.307million scandal; the $100 million “cash for seat” which ended with two reports, one from Minority and another from Majority in Parliament; the BOST scandal; the $132,000 illegal rent payment and $19,500 Havard training by the CEO of Ghana Export Promotion Authority.
Allegation by Mr. Kennedy Agyapong on extortion of $20,000 from visitors going to the President. The $90,000 rent allowances received by majority MP`s in Parliament who live in Government bungalows. All these are explosive garbage in the grinding machine of your Government."

Unfortunately, these are not solid grounds enough for the president of Ghana to be impeached. In fact, a plea for impeachment could only happen if parliament unanimously triggers a vote in this regard.
