The 2020 presidential candidate of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Akwasi Addai Odike, has said in an interview monitored by DailyNewsGhana.com that the President should have addressed ‘very sensitive areas of the economy not toilets.
“I mean how? His address paints little resemblance of what pertains in Ghana today”, he said on Pure FM morning drive.
“However, judging by the President’s address it was clear that President Akufo-Addo is “out of touch with the country he is governing, his leadership has failed to proffer solution to the creeping needs of Ghanaians ”, he added
Odike appealed to the President to admit the country is in crisis.
“Akufo-Addo must admit our nation is in a time of intense difficulty”, stating some challenges facing some sectors of the economy including education and health.
According to him the president “doesn’t think of Ghanaians. Does he believe we’re interested in long addresses?. He didn’t address the pressing needs of people in this country. Ghanaians are crying. There’s no money in the system. Ghana is sinking financially and the president says he has built toilets and will continue to build more? That’s uninspiring, to say the least”.
