Social Commentator, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has urged Ghanaians not to be dissuaded by statements from the opponents of the Akufo-Addo government.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and former President John Mahama has accused the President of mismanaging the economy.
“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.
“Anything short of that will spell doom for the public purse which will be subjected to further abuse should their mandates be renewed beyond 2024,” the NDC Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi said during a press conference on Monday.
Discussing the comments by the opposition party, Allotey Jacobs asked Ghanaians to stay focused on the good works of the incumbent government.
"Ghanaians are always not satisfied with leadership because one side of Ghanaians will criticize leadership. That is the system we find ourselves . . . now in our modern politics, it looks like we're not focused. We are not supporting that which is not good for us . . . " he told Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'',
"Everybody knows there is hardship in Ghana," he added and called on the citizens not to fall for the tricks of the opposition.
Allotey Jacobs also called for maximum support for the Auditor-General and Special Prosecutor (SP) to curb corruption in the country.
He believed empowering the Auditor-General and SP will help in clamping down on the corrupt officials.
"We have an institution known as the Auditor-General's office. Let's give it the maximum support and not to politicize issues."
