Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Samuel Nartey George has claimed that only armed robbers, thieves and persons who engaged in other forms of social vices are prospering under the Akufo-Addo’s bad government.
Mr Nartey told Atinka News’ Vincent Kwofie at the ‘Kum yɛn prɛko’ demonstration which is being organised by the Coalition for Social Justice in Accra that these people are prospering because of the bad governance style of President Akufo-Addo.
“Today if you call yourself a Ghanaian who is living happily in this country, then it means you are an armed rubber or thief,” he said.
He said ever since President Nana Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) took over the reigns of this country, businesses have collapsed totally.
“We want to tell Akufo Addo that, because he knew we were going to demonstrate against his bad governance, he decided to fly out of the country…if you are a father and your household is under fire, you need to calm things down but you don’t take holidays and abandon your children when you know there is fire on the mountain.
“If you go out to search for a job, you don’t get some and even those who were working before this government came into power, their businesses have collapsed,” he said further.
He added, “We are protesting today against the hardship introduced by this government, the insecurity in our country and the thievery governance we are experiencing now.
Some of the placards carried by the demonstrators has inscriptions such as: “2020 we go show Nana” and “Akufo-Addo drop that chamber now”.
Groups that joined the “Kum Y3n Pr3ko” demonstration includes the Minority caucus in Parliament, the Greater Accra Market Women Association, the Concerned Drivers Union, True Drivers Union, Free Media Vanguard, the Coalition for National Sovereignty, disgruntled Menzgold customers and unpaid customers of Gold Coast Fund Management.
In addition, Women Organiser of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Hanna Bissiw described the Akufo-Addo government as a “corrupt” and “wicked” administration, which has cowed journalists and stolen media freedom in Ghana.
According to her, heartlessness of the Akufo-Addo government has entrenched insecurity and fear among journalists, whom, she claimed, can no longer speak and work in freedom.
