The Chief Executive Officer of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Stephen Amoah, has declared that President Akufo Addo is a Messiah who is not appreciated for the divine work he is doing for Ghana.
Mr. Stephen Amoah who has reportedly covered up wanton dissipation of MASLOC by his deputies for vote-buying, made this statement on Accra based Adom TV.
In the interview, an emotional Stephen Amoah at a point broke down and wept like a baby claiming Akufo-Addo is a messiah of sorts who is massively transforming the country and yet all he gets back are lies and criticism.
“let’s be truthful, we should think about the poor; let us think about the country because what you are doing to Ghana is not good; it’s very painful. Some of us pray; it’s not as if I am forcing my eyes to open (for tears to come). So do you think this country is in a good state? What Akufo-Addo has done, why, what kind of country is this? So don’t you think about people, and you are using politics and lies; the work that Akufo-Addo has done, just find out!” Mr. Amoah said almost choking on tears that for some reason refused to drop.
Stephen Amoah, who wept uncontrollably on the set of the TV station about the alleged bastardisation of President Akufo Addo’s image conveniently forgot to mention that some of the harsh criticisms of the president stem from the perception that he is condoning corruption in his administration by shielding several of his appointees who have been fingered for serious acts of corruption.
Indeed, the Akufo-Addo administration is fast earning an unenviable reputation as one of the most corrupt. In 2018, “Tour de guet” (Watchtower) a French Anti-Corruption Report, listed Akufo-Addo in the top ten most corrupt leaders in Africa.
This year, U.S. News rated Akufo-Addo’s Ghana as the third most corrupt country in Africa.
The current President’s government is made up of family members who have been accused of opportunistic influence-peddling resulting in the allegations of corruption and misrule.
Yesterday, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) accused the government of amassing the biggest debt stock, by shooting Ghana’s debt profile from lesst than US$200 billion to approximately Ghc370billion within three years and has undertaken the fewest social infrastructural project.
The Akufo Addo administration is mostly focused on the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) policy, which is its flagship policy that has reportedly gulped significant portions of these public spending.
