Also, the booing comes at a time when the country is experiencing a financial crisis, with prices of goods and services rising by the day and the cedi depreciating against the dollar.
Meanwhile, Ghana has sought an IMF bailout to help the Ghanaian cedi appreciate marginally against the dollar in the coming weeks.

He explained that presidents all over the world are doing something positive for their people. However, that cannot be said of the sitting president of Ghana.

He further stated that it is not news, since former presidents have also suffered the same fate during their tenure.
If you are leading a people, you need to listen to them. You need to feel what they feel. And you ned to make their lives better. That is why we elect eladers.
He stated that if you are a leader and your followership is not in the right frame of mind, and conditions are also harsh, he rhetorically stated that,

He added that if Ghanaians were to cast their votes on that very day, President Akufo-Addo would have lost the elections.
