Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom was speaking to the Accra-based radio station, Class FM, when he charged the president to focus on working and stop complaining everyday.
The businessman was reacting to comments made by the president during the May Day parade.
Addressing a gathering of workers at the parade grounds, Nana Addo complained about how workers, especially those in the public sector, have lackadaisical attitudes.
The president bemoaned how some workers end up spending the first working hour in prayers and are on the edge to close early even during “critical work”.
However, Nduom believes that the president should stop paying lip service to issues.
The PPP lead believes that Nana Addo should already be putting stringent measures in place to curb the issues he see wrong with the workforce in Ghana.
“If a leader will come in front and come and lament that there is problem 1, 2, 3, 4, who is to solve it?”, he asked.
He thus charged the president to find ways to curb the rot in the public sector rather than just highlighting them.
“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 stated.
