Akufo-Addo holds media encounter today
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is billed to hold a media encounter today, Friday, December 13, 2019 to account for his stewardship to Ghanaians after his three-year leadership.
The meeting will be the third since assuming power as the fifth President of Ghana.
President Akufo-Addo’s interaction with the media fraternity will centre on the economy, governance, health, education, security among others.
The meeting will afford journalists the opportunity to ask the President questions about governance so far.
This comes at a time when the Akufo-Addo-led administration is losing popularity among the Ghanaian voter captured in a research by latest Afrobarometre report.
A recent Afrobarometer report by the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) has revealed that 4 in 10 Ghanaians, representing 42 percent would not vote if presidential and parliamentary elections were to be held today.
Compared to 2017, the proportion of respondents who said they would vote for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has dwindled by 15 percentage points – from 49 percent to 34 percent – while the share who said they would vote for the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has remained unchanged (22 per cent).
