According to the man of God, “in the midst of all of this nonsense, our religious leadership is silent, our faith is diminished, and the country is being led astray by lack of godliness and the fear of God.”

In other news on YEN.com.gh, Bridget Otoo painted a grim picture of President Akufo-Addo’s legacy in the fight against corruption.

Ghana reportedly loses close to US$3billion to corruption annually.

Appearing on Starr FM’s personality profile show, Starr Chat, the former TV3 reporter did not mince words when she expressed dissatisfaction with the president’s commitment to fighting the scourge.

She said in response to a question from the host Nana Aba that the president is “leaving a tattered corruption legacy.”

According to the media personality, when she meets the president, she will reach out and shake his hand “and tell him to sit up. Sit up, you are [77] and should leave a better legacy.”
