In a series of social media posts, Actress Efia Odo has attacked the Akuffo-Addo administration for not doing enough to ease the burden of the poor and the destitute during these difficult times.
Questioning why Government should be dishing out cooked food to vulnerable families, Efia Odo suggested that it would be far prudent for the government to give out uncooked rice, oil and other ingredients, while also expressing concern about the disorderly manner in which food is given suggesting a possible violation in social distancing protocols.
The actress further questioned the rationale behind leaving several government housing projects unoccupied while some citizens remain homeless with no decent place to lay their head even during this lockdown. Efia Odo accused the government of leaving the said projects to rot because they were completed by the previous administration.
Efia Odo received several backlashes for her posts while also receiving some commendation. Some questioned what she herself had done to support the vulnerable people she was purporting to fight for.
Feeling betrayed at the backlash she received, the controversial actress put up a quote attributed to a labour union leader and black nationalist in Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, Benjamin Burombo.
