National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for the North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has descended heavily on President Akufo-Addo, accusing him of failing to fulfill the massive campaign promises he made during his campaigning tour in the run up to the 2016 general elections.
According to the former deputy Education Minister under the erstwhile Mahama, President Nana Akufo-Addo has only fulfilled his childhood dream of wanting to become President and not improving the lives of Ghanaians.
Speaking in an interview on Citi TV,Mr. Ablakwa stated;“Clearly this President has fulfilled a childhood dream of becoming President; let’s commend him. Let’s thank God for him for becoming President, but I think one term is good enough”.
He further accused thePresident and his appointees are living lavishly at the expense of Ghanaians.
“My constituents are still asking me; it is the second year, where is the one district, one factory? Where is the $2m per constituency? They are counting down; now the Minister says it has expired.”
“There are also other promises of how they will manage the economy, stabilize the currency, manage the fuel prices, they are building the fundamentals forever, and we are choking, and we are under excruciating hardships as they build the fundamentals, meanwhile what we see from their end is that they are living lavishly.”
He also cited the AMERI deal, and the recent Maritime Authority lunch scandal as proof that President Nana Akufo-Addo is not in control as President of the nation.
He says the current government is a huge disappointment.
