Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has said that President Akufo-Addo must work to fix the problems confronting the country instead of complaining about them.
The founder of the People's Progressive Party (PPP) told Accra-based Class FM that complaints would not solve the problems confronting the country.
He said a leader must fix problems instead of constantly pointing them out.
Nduom said he would love to hear Akufo-Addo providing solutions to problems instead of lamenting about them.
This, according to him, is the reason why the president was elected.
He said the president was elected because things are tough and that now that he is president, he must fix the problems.
“If a leader will come in front and come and lament that there is problem 1, 2, 3, 4, who is to solve it? So I don’t believe in that. I believe that you are put there because things are tough. So I’d prefer you’d tell me the president stood somewhere and said this is what I’m going to do or this is how I’m going to lead you to resolve this problem,” he said.
Nduom's remarks comes after Akufo-Addo, on May Day, accused public sector workers of being lackadaisical in their approach towards work.
Akufo-Addo, in his speech on the occasion of Workers Day, described some Ghanaian workers as "clock watchers', saying that the go to work late and constantly watch the clock until work closes and they go home.
"We have no respect for the hours set aside for work… we pray, we eat, we visit during working hours. We spend hours chatting on the telephone when customers are waiting to be served, thereby increasing our labour costs. We take a week off for every funeral. And then we wonder why we are not competitive,” the president said.
