Rejecting accusations that the president had underperformed during his eight years in office, The member of parliament for Akim Abuakwa South, Samuel Atta Akyea acknowledged that the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict had a significant impact on his administration.
“I do not think he [Akufo-Addo] has underperformed. What I believe is that he has had a lot of trouble. People underrate the power of the COVID-19. President Osagyefo Nkrumah never faced that. The Russian-Ukraine war, in which the evidence is conclusive. The cold fact that economies contracted, because of these situations.
The MP for Akim Abuakwa South, has blasted President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for not promoting the free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
He questioned why the president did not publicize the educational policy much despite making significant investments in it.
The first gentleman of the land has set the groundwork for the next 20 years with all the issues that come with the policy, he noted, adding that few presidents can dedicate themselves to maintaining such a policy.
“I think President Akufo-Addo has been a bad storyteller too. There’s no president in this realm called Ghana, who said people should go to secondary school for free. Do you think it’s cheap?
“Even if it’s not perfect, he has given the foundation for this nation to take off. In terms of serious brain power in the next 20 years. I have never heard any president who said every district should have a hospital, these are not low-cost governance achievements.”
Edem Agbana has reacted to President Nana Akufo-Addo‘s recent comment about Ekumfi that has got Ghanaians talking on social media.
Previous InsightNewsgh.com reported that President Akufo-Addo admitted that he ignored Ekumfi’s development issues because the people did not retain Francis Kingsley Ato Cudjoe, the candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in the 2020 election.
In a reaction, Edem Agbana took to his X (formerly Twitter) page to describe Akufo-Addo as petty person.
By using the word ‘petty’ for the president, Edem Agbana is trying to say Akufo-Addo care too much about small, unimportant things and perhaps that they are unnecessarily unkind.
