'Ghana is finished'; Akufo-Addo not in charge - Hassan Ayariga
The founder and leader of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga has predicted doom for Ghana under the presidency of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to him, President Akufo-Addo was not personally in charge of the running of the country and that his family and friends "have taken over."
Addressing a press conference Thursday morning to assess the 16 months Akufo-Addo government, Mr Ayariga said President Akufo-Addo has failed Ghanaians as he has not been able to fulfil even a quarter of the numerous promises he made ahead of the 2016 elections.
In his assessment, Mr Ayariga said corruption was rising because the President was busily settling financiers of his campaign instead of working in the interest of the Ghanaian people.
“Is it not a surprise that Ghanaians have not witnessed any reshuffle from this government after almost two years in power, despite the massive corruption tag his appointees and ministers have received."
Mr Ayariga added: "I’m told that Ghana’s Finance Minister has been awarded Finance Minister of the Year, congratulations Mr Finance Minister. But well, we have taken our level of corruption beyond Ghana, the government of Ghana has borrowed in recent times than any other government and country in our history, and yet he is awarded the Best Finance Minister."
