Former Minister for EDducation Betty Mould Iddrisu has stated that Ghanaians have completely lost hope in the Akufo-Addo administration, following his failure to fix most challenges he criticised the former government for.
Speaking to Mugabe Maase on the Gumbe Show on TV XYZ, Madam Mould -Iddrisu observed that the recent concerns being raised by most Ghanaians indicate that the greater population among the youth who are neutral and not politically inclined have completely lost hope in President Akufo-Addo.
She recounted how candidate Akufo-Addo in opposition was always lambasting the Mills/Mahama administrations for same challenges he is superintending but has now turned deaf ears on the cry of the very people that voted him to power.
Mould-Iddrisu, a former Attorney General, went on to talk about how the hashtag #FixTheCountry that was being used on social media to get the government to fulfill his promises to Ghanaians was reported by some elements of the government and subsequently taken off social media because it was making the government unpopular.
“See what’s happening they say fix it movement they took them off Twitter and Facebook… These children who are not political ..they are not NDC. We don’t know them. Its not politics! its genuinely from the people of Ghana, the young people who are concerned about their future say there’s no hope in the educational system .. they say there’s no hope in the employment system,” she said worryingly.
She continued, “Today, you cannot join the public service if you don’t have links… Immigration, Police, Army they say you pay to join,” she added while calling for the government to fix the very problems they talked about in opposition and promised to tackle.
