So, Who Is In Charge Of Ghana? Akufo-Addo Begs To Know

Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has in an implied manner accused President Mills of being a ceremonial leader because he is not directly in charge of affairs of the country. He wonders how a ruler, vested with all the powers and authority of the state, failed to stop the payment of a colossal amount of money as judgment debt obtained through fraudulent means to one individual. Addressing a teeming crowd of NPP supporters at a rally held on Saturday at Mantse Agbonaa in James Town where it served as the platform to introduce all the party’s 2012 parliamentary candidates in Greater Accra to the supporters, Nana Akufo-Addo cited the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO’s) Interim Report on the Ghc51 million judgment debt payment to businessman Alfred Woyome, which stated that President Mills on two occasions tried to stop the payment, but government officials brushed his orders aside and went ahead to pay the embattled NDC financier. He also accused President Mills of being economical with the truth when during the presentation of his Fourth State of the Nation Address, he (Mills) failed to disclose to Ghanaians how the country managed to record its highest ever GDP growth rate.
