The Great Democrats are by this statement calling on Nana Addo Danquah Akufo -Addo to State his official position on government's decision to provide humanitarian assistance and refuge to persons from Rwanda, Yemen and Syria.
Since the government announced its intention to embark on this critical decision, we have heard from various stakeholders and interested groups some of whom disagree with the decision.
However, unlike what other responsible opposition party leaders do in other jurisdictions, the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer has surprisingly been silent about the matter.
We call on Mr Akufo-Addo, to as a matter of urgency, let Ghanaians Know his position. By so doing, the people of Ghana would have the opportunity to determine what he would do if given the reign of this dear country. It is important to add that, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo -Addo has served as Minister of Foreign Affairs and was once the Chairman of the UN Security Council. Indeed, the NPP touts him as an expert in international relations and diplomacy; it is therefore in his own interest to express his much touted expert opinions.
We at Great Democrats believe that, it is high time Nana Addo Danquah Akufo- Addo becomes consistent in choosing what matters to speak on so as to make clear his policy position as an alternative for the populace to assess. It is the same Mr Akufo-Addo who lamented about the late president Mills' 'slow' response to the the political crisis in Cote d’Ivoire.
By so doing he has given the public the impression that he is forthright on foreign policy matters. We therefore call on him to be bold enough to publicly state his position on this decision by government.
The Great Democrats and by extension all Ghanaians, are waiting patiently to hear Nana Akufo-Addo's views on this matter.
We wish all Ghanaians a very happy new year,
Convenor, Great Democrats.
