The very disappointing NPP government of Nana Akufo-Addo, which would rather do stupid cosmetic changes like increasing the number of regions or adding unnecessary new currency nobody asked for, has been graded ‘F9’ by one-time supporter Kwame A Plus.
The loudmouth political activist campaigned vigorously for Nana Addo in 2016, but suffice it to say he has been disappointed by the results so far, as have the rest of us.
According to him, everything Nana Addo claimed Mahama was doing wrong, he has done even worse since coming to power, thus he deserves a score of 30% – a colossal failure.
“If you tell us John Mahama is doing something which is not good and that you will come and do better but you come and do worse; … You tell us John Mahama is practising a family-and-friends government and we all believed you and went and told the electorate that John Mahama is enforcing a family-and-friends regime and you came to power and introduced family-and-friends in government, it means you are someone who does not tell the truth,” A Plus complained.
“If you tell me that John Mahama is incompetent and one of the reasons was that he had 87 ministers and I go and campaign… assuring them (Ghanaians) that when Nana Addo comes to power, he will reduce the number of ministers and then you come to power and you increase it from 87 to 120-plus, and there are ministries that have three deputy ministers, Chief Directors… when it happens that way, then you have disappointed the people who love you,”
A Plus added: “The followers of NPP, who believed [the things he told them] are disappointed, because you told us that the Ghana cedi under John Mahama was GHS3.7 [to USD 1] and it has made the cedi very weak, but you have rather taken us to 5-plus, and that is what hurts. It isn’t that anyone hates Nana and feels he is a bad person”.
