Governance Lecturer at the Central University, Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah, has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to address the corrupt practices and hardships Ghanaians are facing under his administration.
The President has riddled with a barrage of citicisms particularly coming from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
NDC National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, addressing a press conference in Accra on Monday, claimed Ghanaians are fed up with the President and his government, therefore yearning to vote them out of power.
He made this comment in support of some allegations made by the NDC 2020 Presidential candidate, Ex-President John Dramani Mahama against the ruling New Patriotic Party and their leader, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, during his 'Thank You' tour.
“Former President Mahama echoed the sentiments of the vast majority of Ghanaians who feel scandalized by the unbridled corruption and plain thievery that has become the hallmark of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP government.
“The alarming case of corruption under this government is such that Ghanaians cannot wait to exact act accountability by voting out the NPP after their eight year tenure in 2024," Sammy Gyamfi said.
Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah corroborated the claims of hardship and corruption characterizing the Akufo-Addo administration.
According to him, Ghanaians are really facing lots of difficulties with most of them having living conditions worsening day by day.
To him, the President must sit up and address the challenges of Ghanaians so as to ease the hardships.
He said; "Let's see a drastic improvement because when you do the same thing all the time, you get the same results. We have to change our ways . . . do something that will let people admit that things have changed . . . Government must be seen to be fighting corruption. Government must fight it; we have to fight corruption like we're fighting COVID.''
''Let us do something different because when you do ordinary things, you get ordinary results but we want to get extraordinary results," he added.
