President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has not relieved Ghanaians from hardship to have Junior High and Senior High School pupils lined up on streets to welcome him, the deputy Ashanti Regional Communication Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said.
Kwaku Asafo-Agyei who was speaking to Mugabe Maase on ‘Inside Politics’ on Radio XYZ 93.1 Thursday afternoon indicated that the president’s posture on Ghanaians in recent times is nothing good to write home about.
According to the vociferous communicator, President Akufo-Addo has not transformed Ghanaians in 18 months as he promised prior to the 2016 general elections, but rather, he has borrowed more than the previous government did in the last 4 years of its tenure.
Asafo-Agyei’s comments come at a time some pupils of some schools in the Asuogyaman District were made to line up along some streets in some communities to wave at Mr Akufo-Addo as he entered the Eastern Region, his home region, to begin a tour.
In letter that has gone viral on social media, the District Education Director of Asuogyaman District, Mavis O. Yirenkyi requested from headmasters of some 12 schools in the area to line up pupils “along the principal streets from New Akrade, through Atimpoku to Akosombo,” to welcome the President.
Albeit majority of Ghanaians have taken the president to the cleaners over the directive, the opposition NDC has not hesitated in taken a swipe on the president for superintending over what they have described as “preposterous”.
But on Inside Politics, Asafo-Agyei said the president was becoming ‘unpopular’ following his bad governance hence the decision to have school kids hold placards and hail the president although “he has not done anything profitable to Ghanaians.”
“He begged for our votes to serve us and not to lord over us,” he said as he likened the president to an autocratic leader.
Condemning the act, he said the hardship the Akufo-Addo led government has inflicted on Ghanaians is terrible that the president does not even deserve a welcome from anybody wherever he goes.
