Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Lydia Forson is not enthused with the performance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo one bit.
The award-winning screen goddess in the latest tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh expressed serious concerns with the Akufo-Addo administration's mediocre performance since taking over in 2017.
“My biggest frustration with this government is that for years, they sold themself as the solution to all of Ghana’s problems- but see,” she wrote.
Acknowledging the administration has had some good policies, she added: “But you didn’t promise us average, you promised EXCEPTIONAL?!! So what happened?”
Forson’s continuous frankness generated loads of reactions.
@ElikemKotoko said: “We elected a MESS to do the work of a MESSIAH. Surprisingly, the likes of a hypocrite like @MensaOtabil have not finished watching his. Atio also Geographic channel. God must be asleep. Competent incompetence. They’ve institutionalized corruption and intend to make it a religion.”
@itsDiDi wrote, “We got Scammed, that's what.”
@ColeyNick added: “NPP criticized NDC for the Accra-Kumasi highway and for over four years now they said nothing about it while travelers are being wasted on it, that's what should concern u and not attitudinal change, of who? U or government?
@apt_11x observed that: “ibi sad chale...gradually they're doing the same thing Mahama and his government was criticized for. They don't listen to the plight of the ppl...the ppl say they want jobs n then they'll say "free education" just like Mahama said "infrastructure". The arrogance be staggering!”
@Tomefab countered: “I wonder what yardstick you've used for your made-up "EXCEPTIONAL". Who graded what they promised "EXCEPTIONAL"? You can be hard on them if you chose to but don't create the wrong impression against them. Look around the globe and see how Covid19 has devastated major economies.”
@PhilGrey12 retorted: “This government is the most useless one ever in the history of this country. They just came to waste taxpayers’ money. Bag money with wings. That's all. What annoys me most is when they pretend to be working.”
@EJMcRon further stated: “Lydia forget these mediocre people. Both NDC and NPP are failures. We need a total African reformation and that has to come with a new African revolution.”
Meanwhile, Singer and Political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as APlus also expressed grave doubts over President Akufo-Addo’s commitment to the fight against corruption.
He said the president’s attitude towards anti-corruption campaigners like former Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo and former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu is unfortunate.
“When President Akufo-Addo admonished that we should be citizens and not spectators, I thought the messiah had arrived. But I no longer believe he's the messiah. He fights anybody who is fighting corruption,” APlus said on Starr FM’s Starr Chat on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
President Akufo-Addo forced the former Auditor-General into early retirement following a challenge to his nationality and retirement age by the Audit Service Board.
