“You Have Failed The Youth Big Time” – Lawyer Nti Boldly Drags Akufo-Addo

Popular Ghanaian comedian Richmond Amoakoah, well known as Lawyer Nti in the entertainment industry, has bemoaned the president’s shortcomings.

Many Ghanaians have criticized the president on their social media accounts and expressed their disgust in him. Lawyer Nti has sent a lengthy message to the president on his Facebook page, expressing his dissatisfaction with him.

He wrote,

“Open letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Dear President Akufo Addo,

I trust you are doing well. I write to you today as someone who followed you keenly on your journey to become a President.

I believed in you so much and voted happily for you every single time you contested for the seat of the Presidency.

Unfortunately, like many Ghanaians today, I am filled with broken heart, disappointment, anger and sadness as I write you this letter.

Sir, you said many things on your way to becoming the President and sadly the reality of today is worse than the situations you passionately spoke against.

Your recent responses to the plight of Ghanaians on your tours have been very disappointing and insulting to say the least.

We are the very same people you begged to give you a chance to redeem the image and dire economic times of the past.

The current situation of the country when measured against your own words, and that of Dr Bawumia, on your way to the Presidency is laughable.

When you had to sit and change the things for which we voted for you, you were busy blaming President Mahama for years.

After exhausting the “Mahama card”, you went to Covid and then straight to Russia Ukraine war.

Mr President, reasonable Ghanaians are not oblivious of these factors and it’s impact on Ghana and the rest of the world but we should be doing way better than we are doing today.

I am saying this because the man Candidate Akufo-Addo as President was touted as someone who could turn around our fortunes as a people.

However, I must say many Ghanaians including me do not believe you can look in the mirror and say you have done your very best for the country.

I do not believe you are happy about your numerous promises to the Ghanaian people especially the youth against your performance as a President.

Mr. President, you have failed the youth and the swan-song is “Nana Addo ama yɛn sa asi fɔm”.

The booing you have been receiving on your recent tours is actually how people feel about you.

Do not let your handlers deceive you that NDC is behind that because they are not.

When Journalists call you out, do not let your handlers tell you such journalists have been paid by some people to discredit you.

Sir, please do not let the few people that your party executives and appointees organize to flood places to meet you on your tour with cheers deceive you.

Mr. President, those are merely party fanatics who do not represent genuinely how many Ghanaians feel about the current economic crisis Ghana faces.

A lot of Ghanaians I have encountered both on my travels across Ghana and on social media are not happy.

Mr. President, you know deep down that you could have done better. You know deep down that we shouldn’t be where we are today.

You know that you could have done better in your fight against corruption and Galamsey.

Sir, you know you could have protected the public purse better and could have acted in the best interest of Ghana, not a few party people and financiers, and damned the consequences because that is the kind of person we thought you were.

A lot of people including me were wrong about the disciplined and “no nonsense” Akufo-Addo we were told about.

Mr. President, I am convinced you being defensive and pushing the “I don’t care” posture is your way of dealing with how you feel deep down about your performance as President.

You don’t seem to care because you know you have failed the many youth you told to “Believe In Ghana”.

It is unacceptable but we can understand because you won’t be on the ballot again after this term.

However, Mr. President, please do better and salvage the situation.

You cannot go out like this after all the fight you have fought to get to where you are today.

May God bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong.

Citizen Richmond Amoakoh aka Lawyer Ntikateche Bombay Isaiah.”

Bawumia Launches Employable Skills Programme To Benefit Young People In Ahafo

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday launched a youth development employable skills programme that seeks to create jobs for more than 1,200 young people in the Ahafo Region.

Dubbed “Promoting Youth Employment through Employable Skills Training and Entrepreneurship”, the Newmont Ghana Gold Limited (NGGL) and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) are sponsoring the programme.

The beneficiaries would be engaged in welding and fabrication, barbering, fashion design, hair dressing and dressmaking, bakery, masonry, wood technology, vulcanizing, general spraying and auto mechanics.

Speaking at the ceremony held at Goaso, the Ahafo Regional capital, Dr. Bawumia said about 72 per cent of the nation’s population were young people below 35 years, and thus commended the Ahafo Regional Coordinating Council for the initiative.

The Vice President noted “this is the first regional-led youth employment and skills training initiative in the country” and promised the government’s support for the programme to yield positive outcomes.

Dr. Bawumia, therefore, stressed the government’s commitment to transform Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) to make the sector more attractive for the youth.

Mr George Yaw Boakye, the Ahafo Regional Minister, said the programme’s implementation would well position the beneficiaries to create jobs for themselves to reduce youth unemployment in the region.

“This would also economically empower young people and help to end the issues of illegal mining and logging in the region,” he added.

Mr Boakye said the Management of NGGL had set aside GhC1 million for the procurement of training equipment and start up tools, and applauded the company for that assistance.

He said an amount of GhC25,000 has been set aside for each of the six politically-administrative districts and municipalities for the implementation of the programme.

2023 Budget: Minority Vows to Resist 2.5% Increment In VAT

The Minority in Parliament has vowed to resist any attempt by the government to revise the rate of Value Added Tax (VAT) upwards in the 2023 budget.

Government has given an indication VAT rate will be increased from the current 17.5% to 20%.

Speaking to the media in parliament, MP for Asuogyaman, Thomas Ampem Nyarko argued such a move will further exacerbate the current hardship in the country.

The NDC MPs rather want the government to cut down expenditure especially from the presidency vault.

“In fact the information we are picking up doesn’t look good for our dear country. The budget that is due to be read tomorrow promises to be a budget full of taxes. What we are hearing is that this government intends to increase VAT by 2.8 percent. They intend to increase income taxes and they intend to remove a lot of exemptions to Mobile Money (MoMo). So even merchants are going to be subjected to taxes.

“We have known this government to be insensitive but we never knew that their level of insensitivity would be this high. Because in this time of serious hardship in this country with inflation so high none of us expected that they would be increasing taxes to this level,” the Member of the Finance Committee stated.

He continued: “Our (Minority) posture is that we are willing to support the government in these difficult times. Because they need help if we don’t help this economy will crash. However, the government must come clear to show they are going to reduce expenditure drastically.”
