Social media users blast Madagascar’s president for praising Akufo-Addo

The president of Madagascar, Andry Nirina Rajoelina, has been criticized for praising President Akufo-Addo for developmental projects in Ghana.

Madagascar’s newly sworn-in president commended the president of Ghana for spearheading initiatives such as the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme and the ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ initiative.

3news.com reports that, according to President Rajoelina, Ghana, under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo, has since 2017, consistently been one of the fastest growing economies not only in Africa, but in the world.

For that reason, he underscored the need for closer ties of co-operation and friendship between Ghana and Madagascar.

Some Ghanaians were however not enthused with his remarks, and took to social media to express their views:

Emmanuel admonished the people of Madagascar to tighten their belts.

Lartey argued that Nana Addo doesn't deserve the praise.

Grant wondered why President Rajoelina would say Ghana is developing.

Bwoy concluded that President Rajoelina is not well.

On his part, President Akufo-Addo congratulated President Rajoelina on his ascension, once again, to the office of president of the Republic of Madagascar, and wished him well during his tenure of office.

He commended his Madagascan counterpart for his decision to restructure the economy of Madagascar for “strong growth”, as well as establish independent bodies, akin to Ghana’s Office of the Special Prosecutor, to combat corruption in the island nation.
