A gentleman identified on Facebook as Elinam Sallah has descended heavily on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over exorbitant electricity bills.
In a post on his personal handle, Elinam explicitly stated that he was filled with anger over the development as his bills increased by nearly threefold without adding any new gadgets.
"Average bill we used to pay was ¢150, then suddenly last month it shot up to almost 3× the amount. I contacted the ECG office and they came to check our connection and sockets. According to them, there was no fault. We have also not added on more gadgets, so why should we end up with such a bill," he said.
He also indicated that nobody asked the government for free water and electricity during the heat of the COVID-19 pandemic and so citizens do not need to bear the cost of that now.

In conclusion, the gentleman asked whether this was what the '4 more for Nana' campaign was all about.

Nothing is free in Ghana
Away from that, Twene Jonas, the popular US-based Ghanaian activist known for his popular phrases, "Glass nkoaa" and "the system is working, 24/7", has descended on political leaders once more.
In relation to the recent news of a policeman getting shot to death at Korle Bu during a robbery on a bullion van, Twene Jonas stated that taking things for granted in Ghana is not funny anymore.
He indicated that political leaders in Ghana need to prioritize what is best for the people of Ghana above their self-interests by procuring logistics such as bulletproof vests for the police.
