- Some market women have expressed disappointment in the Akufo-Addo government
- They have complained of severe hardship despite the beautiful promises the president made before the 2016 elections which made them vote for him
- The market women have threatened to vote against Akufo-Addo and his government in 2020
YEN.com.gh is in possession of a sad video which has at least two market women expressing their disappointment in the Akufo-Addo government.
In a survey conducted by YEN on what these market women would want to tell the president if they got the chance to meet him, both women said they would tell him in plain language that: “Nana you have deceived us”.
One of them revealed that she had regretted voting for Akufo-Addo due to the hardship she is facing now.
“I would tell him that he has not done well. He has brought us so much hardship. He has deceived us; what he told us he would do when he wins is not what he is doing now, he is deceiving us. I sell fried yam, and was buying a gallon of oil for 107 cedis under Mahama, but now I buy at 150,” one of the women lamented speaking on top of her voice in the Twi language.
Another market woman who said she sold provisions said things have become so expensive now and stifling her survival on the market.
She also said she would without haste tell the president that he was deceiving Ghanaians if she should meet him.
According to her, she had never voted before, however, with the kind of promises Akufo-Addo made into the 2016 elections, decided to vote for him.
She added that the president’s campaign messages made her understand that the former president john Mahama was “killing” them, therefore, had to vote for Nana.
However, her desire of living comfortably under Nana’s government has not seen the light of the day because she was now suffering more than she did under Mahama.
Meanwhile, some other Ghanaians have sworn to have Akufo-Addo and his 111 ministers put to shame in 2020.
This follows a statement by the president that so far, no serious evidence of corruption has been brought against his appointees.
But these Ghanaians said they are disappointed in the president for not being truthful to them, and for that matter, would not vote for him in the 2020 elections.
