Security tops concerns for Ghanaians in state of nation address

When President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo addressed the country in the house of Parliament on February 21, 2019, on the state of the nation, one thing that topped the list of desires of Ghanaians was the matter of security.

YEN.com.gh asked readers via Facebook what their expectations were. Many seemed disillusioned by the politics of the day and offered little to no substance on their expectations.

But many more answered, stating that the matter of security is what reigns on their minds. Some expressed the fear that political vigilante groups were taking over the political space of the nation.

Others also mentioned the spate of suspected shootings that have seemingly sparked up in recent months.

YEN.com.gh collected a few of the responses via Facebook that most represented the general tone of sentiments.

Theophilus Afari expected the president to touch on "Security, education, nurses allowance, our stand in the current dumsor".

The same sentiments were shared by another Facebook user, Steve Kobby Ackah.

Albert Atindane submitted his take on "hardship" and of course, security in the country.

Last but certainly not least, Mawuli Mensah Gbedze also added: "Security is very poor i the country."

Maybe, the expectations of these Ghanaians would have been partially met by the fact that the president proposed that the two main political parties meet in the coming week to delve into ways of ending political vigilante.

President Akufo-Addo said at the address that he hoped the parties would forge forward in cooperation.
