Early Elections Inevitable: Ghana Beyond Abysmal Leadership
Akufo-Addo is 90% of the problem; his “outstanding Ministers” are just 10%.
The fact that President Akufo-Addo thought his non-performing Ministers were outstanding when 90% of Ghanaians believed that Ghana was heading in the wrong direction confirms why Ghana must change direction, change Leadership and change government.
The rating of the Office of the President and his government as very corrupt with the Jubilee House tagged as the Corruption Headquarters make a complete break necessary.
Corruption is the main reason why Ghana is Broke; Binge Borrowing is another major reason while incompetence of the government is the final nail in the coffin of the Kleptomaniac government which has misplaced priorities, misapplication and misappropriation of State Funds, State Assets including State Lands as its preoccupation.
President Akufo-Addo must explain why he signed the Executive Instrument giving the Ada Salt and Lagoon to McDan through Electrochem and the Achimota Forest Lands to the Owoo family.
The Supreme Court in 1951 dismissed the Owoo family claim to the Achimota Forest Lands when President Akufo-Addo’s father represented them as their Lawyer;
The Supreme Court determined that the Achimota Forest Lands belonged to the La Stool (2/3) and the Osu Stool (1/3) when it gave judgement and dismissed the Owoo Family and thirteen (13) other claimants.
President Akufo-Addo must tell Ghanaians why the Cantonments Civil Aviation Land is being stolen under his watch and nothing is being done to stop the theft…
President Akufo-Addo must explain why he refused to act on the Article 146 Petition for the removal of Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo and the long list of Land Looters attached to the petition.
Akufo-Addo must explain why he is still refusing to act on the Article 146 Petitions for the removal of Jean Adukwei Mensa despite his haste to remove her predecessor Charlotte Osei for far less, claiming to be a Conveyor Belt in such Article 146 Petition cases.
President Akufo-Addo must address the Nation on the Corruption, Mismanagement and the abysmal performance of his government which has led Ghana to the IMF and invite Ghanaians to make input into the Homegrown Rescue Plan to be sent to the IMF.
The alternative is for President Akufo-Addo to resign and call for Early Elections, as Ghana’s credit worthiness has been downgraded by yet another rating agency to Junk Status after the S&P.
Early Elections in Ghana will turn around the fortunes of Ghana and bring back the investor confidence required for the rescue of Ghana’s collapsed economy.
Early Elections will guarantee debt forgiveness and rescheduling debt servicing to ease the pressure on the Cedi as capital flight slows down.
Foolhardiness, pigheadedness and continuing on the current path will lead to Ghana’s economy moving from a Junk status to Ghana itself becoming a Failed State.
The President still wants to build his Corruption Cathedral, he is in denial of the abysmal performance of his government which is keen on exploring borrowing opportunities yet failing to fulfill promises even in their stronghold leading to Chiefs holding press conference and citizens chasing away his government officials…
Ghanaians are resolved to be Citizens and not Spectators;
The more the NPP talks about Breaking the Eight, the more resolved Ghanaians are to show them the exit.
The payment of Salaries and COLA will be a test…
The unemployment rate and excruciating hardships will be yet another test…
But Corruption, Misplaced Priorities and Looting will be the ultimate test of the patience of Ghanaians.
God Save Our Homeland Ghana.
