Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Lydia Forson has expressed serious misgivings over the trajectory of the country under the leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to the award-winning screen goddess, she doesn’t believe the Ghana “we want is going to happen in four years.”
“It will be unrealistic to have these expectations of anyone in power,” she stated in a tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh.
That notwithstanding, she said it is possible to lay the foundation towards that change, adding; “Our only fear now is that we don’t see the foundation towards it…”
Forson has in previous tweets made her disappointment in the performance of President Akufo-Addo conspicuously clear.
In one such tweets, she described the president’s performance since succeeding the so-called ‘incompetent’ John Dramani Mahama as “mediocre.”
“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.
@LFC_Si_Senor stated: “When party A lay the foundations. Party B won’t continue, they will leave it to rot and start another that’s our problem.”
@profdublyn_zee said: “The land seff has been taken over by galamsey and land guards. How can we clear it to even start the foundation?”
@atorexford2 added: “The citizenry must prepare clear manifestoes and hand it to political parties henceforth.”
@2gyiimi observed: “With the truth glaring at us , I'm surprised why some party footsoldiers seem to be oblivious of these facts.”
@roberzysuccess stated: “So, so sad sister. It's a hard truth but no matter what we do we can't run Away from it.”
In other news on YEN.com.gh, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers – Ghana (COPEC), has revealed that fuel prices will witness an increase in the next few hours.
The Executive Secretary of the chamber, Duncan Amoah, in a signed statement, said this has become necessary due to the increase of petroleum prices on the international market.
He said the commodity which was sold at $520 per metric tonne has now been pegged at about $545 per metric tonne, according to an earlier report by YEN.com.gh.
This, the statement says, translates to about 8 cedis per litre at the pump for both petrol and diesel, or about 5% on the international price index.

The above-mentioned figures make about a 1.25% increase in the current pump prices.
