President Nana Akufo-Addo’s popularity is waning due to his inability to deliver most of his campaign promises almost two years after he became President, according to Africawatch Magazine.
According to an international magazine, Ghana's president, Nana Akufo-Addo has dropped massively in his popularity since 2016. The magazine also alleges that this unpopularity has moved the president to be defensive in public.
Africawatch is an influential continental publication but in the context of Ghanaian politics, it is quite controversial.
Its reports have been subjects for debates between Ghana's to major parties: the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).
But in its assessments of Akufo-Addo's government, the magazine claims that the president's inability to deliver on major campaign promises has made him very unpopular.
Africawatch writes: “uneasiness is thus increasing as more people are coming to grips with the stark fact that some of the key president’s campaign promises may not materialize at all, such as...a scheme he proudly called ‘One District, One Factory."
The magazine further stated that although Ghanaians had questions about how then candidate Akufo-Addo was going to raise money for some of the things he promised, they voted for him with hope.
It however stated: “Hope in Akufo-Addo’s presidency is therefore turning into doubt and beginning to grow into disillusionment."
The magazine concluded that Ghanaians are currently not finding many reasons to like the presidency of Akufo-Addo and thus puts his re-election chances at risk.
