Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Shatta Wale, who is known in real life as Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr., the president has done marvelously well in handling the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.
In an interview on 4stye TV and monitored by YEN.com.gh, the 'Melissa' hitmaker said in the wake of the pandemic, no president is doing what President Akufo-Addo for his people.
He, therefore, called on all political parties in Ghana to allow Akufo-Addo to stay in office for another four years.
“So marvelous that he can really go down like care about his people…thinking about giving them free this, free that. He came with this free education thing and must people never understood that but it is working," Shatta Wale said.
“A period like this that he can come out and be supporting us like this- I don’t see any African President doing this apart from him. So I believe we need to clap for him every morning when we wake up. The way people go to church and clap, they need to be clapping for the President like that because he has done so marvelously well."
"To all other political parties aiming to contest the 2020 general elections, Shatta Wale advised that “I believe we should call all other political parties and they must come into an agreement to give him (Akufo-Addo) another four years," he added.
President recently announced certain interventions to help Ghanaians in this period of lockdown.
Some of the interventions include free food for needy people in the areas under lockdown, government absorbing water bills for all Ghanaians and no taxes on the basic salaries of all frontline health workers among others.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaian comic actor, Mmebusem, popularly known as Ghana Jesus has teamed up with Shatta Wale to jab Sarkodie and his fans.
According to the comedian, anytime Shatta Wale releases a diss song, Sark fans come out to bash him but hail Sarkodie anytime he drops a diss song.
His comments come after Shatta Wale blasted Sarkodie for releasing a diss song titled 'Sub Zero' in an era where the deadly coronavirus was spreading globally and it is gradually on the rise in Ghana.
