The Minority NDC Caucus in the Parliament of Ghana has described the performance of Akufo-Addo- Bawumia led government in their 100 days in office as nothing but failure and waste of the country’s resources.
According to the NDC MPs, President Akufo-Addo’s short stay in office was mostly characterized by plagiarism, acts of hooliganism and terrorism by Delta Force, Kandahar Boys and Invincible Forces, while draining state coffers with the cost of running an over-sized government.
Addressing a press conference to put the spot on President Akufo-Addo’s 100 days in office in Accra, Tuesday, the deputy minority leader James Klutse Avedzi, said government needs to do more to set the minds and hearts of Ghanaians at peace by dealing with the acts of terrorism.
“Ghana today under the AKufo-Addo government is witnessing state sponsored thuggery and terrorism and we the citizens have watched on helpless as our compatriots have been subjected to brutal assaults, harassment and intimidation,” he bemoaned.
“This state of affairs have come to define the first 100 days of this government and there appears to be no end in insight,” he added.Mr. Avedzi said the activities of the vigilante groups affiliated to the government is having a telling effect on the image of the country.
“Nothing can be more embarrassing to the country of Kofi Annan who made [Ghanaians and…Africans] extremely proud as Secretary General of the United Nation (UN). Today, this is how president Akufo-Addo’s government rewards Kofi Annan,” he said in reference to the condemnation of the activities of the of the aforementioned vigilante groups by the UN.Sadly, he said, “this spate of thuggery and outright lawlessness will most definitely have a negative impact on attracting foreign investors into the country which will adversely affect the country’s economy.
“In area of security therefore the Akufo-Addo Bawumia government have been an abysmal failure and they need to do more in the coming days to earn the confidence of Ghanaians. They need to do more to set the heart and minds of Ghanaians at peace. They should desist from choosing political expedience over reason and stop turning a blind eye as their thugs unleash more attacks on Ghanaians,” he noted.
