Investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni is wondering whether President Akufo-Addo is under a spell following a rampant renaming of public tertiary institutions.
In a series of Facebook posts, Manasseh first passed a funny comment on President Akufo-Addo seemingly naming spree.
He joked that Ghana could soon be named after DB Danquah, adding that the country’s capital town could also be moved to Kyebi.
“DB Danquah Republic of Ghana. Capital Town, Kyebi,” he wrote, before adding another comment in Twi: “Obi ato Omanpanin aduro anaa?” which translates as ‘has a spell been cast on the President?”
Since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government assumed office, at least three public tertiary institutions have been renamed after former politicians.
First, it was the Wa and Navrongo campuses of University of Development Studies (UDS) and, now, the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) is also set to be renamed.
Known previously as the University of Business and Integrated Development Studies, the Wa campus of UDS has been renamed the ‘Simon Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies’.
Meanwhile, the UENR in Sunyani in the Bono Region is also to be named after the late Prime Minister of the Second Republic, Professor Kofi Abrefa Busia.
Manasseh recently resigned from the Multimedia Group Limited, having worked with the media outfit for seven years.
His resignation came following the fallout of his investigative piece, titled ‘Militia in the Heart of the nation’.
In a statement, Manasseh said he will “continue to serve Ghana as a freelance investigative journalist and dedicate more time to the writing of books.”
