Ghana: Why the Country Needs Nana Akufo-Addo (I)
We have noted with disgust the foray of the national security advisor into discussions of political promises at a time when the nation is facing grave security issues.
We wish to remind him of his job description and the need for him to be on the ball 24 hours a day. We also wish to state, unequivocally that his job is to ensure the security of all citizens in this country and not the security of the current executive only.
Mr. Nunoo Mensah, is beginning to show such crass incompetence in handling security matters in this country and we believe it is time his position is reassessed. His diatribe on Nana Addo and the feasibility of his Free SHS promise only goes to show Mr. Mensah’s hypocrisy, ignorance and desperation.
He, who has been a beneficiary of free education during his lifetime now claims that it is impossible for others to enjoy it. We wish to remind him that he is well advanced in age and so should consider his speeches very carefully.
Substantially, the fact that his NDC, headed by President Mills, have not been able to fulfill their numerous campaign promises like a onetime NHIS premium, absorbing all electricity and water bills for all SHS’s across the country, building stadia in all regional capitals etc does not mean that others cannot fulfill their promises.
Again, we wish to state that the next time he wants to address the public on such matters, he should be guided by the fact the NPP managed to attain what the 2008 manifesto of the NDC called a “clearly unrealistic target of achieving middle income status by 2015” 8 years ahead of time in 2007 and it is based on such a track record that Nana Akuffo Addo is promising free SHS and Ghanaians have confidence that he will do it.
