- Nana Addo has decried the level of destructive political criticism in the country
- The president says he has good intentions for Ghana but his political critics always paint him black
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has lamented the high level of destructive criticisms he has always come to grapple with as a politician.
Nana Addo says even though he has the best intentions for Ghanaians, political critics have always painted him as that evil person who does not deserve the support of Ghanaians.
Speaking at a jeering crowd in the Upper East regional capital of Bolgatanga where is currently is embarking on a two-day tour, the president revealed that he still has the urge to press on despite such harsh and destructive criticisms.
“I have always been criticized in whatever I do in Ghana. But that’s alright. I’m comfortable with that,” the president revealed.
The presidential visit to the three Northern regions is to help the Nana Addo ascertain the development projects ongoing by government and explore best ways of drafting government policy around the needs of such communities.
Nana Addo has also had the opportunity of meeting chiefs across the regions as he paid courtesy calls on them and re-assured of government’s resolve to fulfill all promises per the NPP manifesto.
The choice to visit the Northern region including the Upper East and West can be largely attributed to the poor performance of the president in the 2016 elections where he lost to his fierce contender – John Mahama – in the said regions.
