The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called on Ghanaians to reject President Nana Akufo-Addo and the governing New Patriotic Party in the 2020 general elections.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, Asiedu Nketiah said President Akufo-Addo’s government is presiding over the biggest heist in the history of the country.
According to the NDC scribe, the president lacks the courage to fight corruption hence his call.
“Only a strong and unambiguous signal to President Akufo-Addo and his government can reverse the current drift of the country into an abyss of corruption and total collapse. We have the power to cause a change in the history of our country by refusing to surrender the public purse to a marauding gang of looters who present the facade of incorruptibility.”
He again indicated that the country could be in for miserable times should the president fail to change his attitude towards the fight against corruption.
“All the talk of his incorruptibility on accounts of age and his life experiences are only artificial creations designed to clothe him in borrowed garments while he presides over the biggest heist in Ghana’s political and governance history. The anger is a clear indication that the patience of Ghanaians is wearing thin and unless a dramatic change in the posture of the president is witnessed, we could be in for gloomy times.”
