The state of our nation is hopeless - Minority reacts to President Akufo-Addo's address

The Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson, has described Ghana’s current socioeconomic status as hopeless in reaction to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's State of the Nation Address (SONA) today [Tuesday, February 27, 2024].


Speaking on the floor of Parliament after the address,  Dr Forson said it was no surprise that many Ghanaians were leaving the country. 

“Mr Speaker, the state of our nation is hopeless. No wonder that ordinary Ghanaians including professionals are leaving our shores in droves, in search of greener pastures,” he said stressing that the President’s administration had failed as a government, highlighting the unemployment situation in the country.


Furthermore, Dr Ato Forson, stated that the President could not take the blame alone and thus, he had failed together with Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia who is the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the upcoming general elections. 

“Mr Speaker, $1 is today GH¢13. Mr Speaker, under President Mahama, $1 was 3 GH¢3.80. Mr Speaker, a vote for Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia is a vote for President Akufo-Addo,” the Minority Leader said.

“Mr. Speaker, to conclude on the matter, Ghanaians voted for the President and appealed to the vice president to support him to succeed. Mr. Speaker, the president cannot fail alone. The President will have to fail together with the Vice-President so Mr President, you have failed with your Vice President,” he added. 

 In conclusion, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson intimated that Ghanaians will not miss President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Bawumia. 

“We know you are going, and we can only wish you bye-bye,” he said.
