Parl is in crisis but you’re jetting in luxury-Ablakwa jabs Prez

Minority’s spokesperson on Foreign Affairs Okudzeto Ablakwa has slammed President Akufo-Addo for travelling abroad when Parliament was in crisis.

He described it as ridiculous and wondered why the President would travel when the crisis he aimed was caused by his government.

He indicated that the only thing the President was interested in was travelling in luxury instead of resolving the crisis at hand.

To him, the democracy of Ghana was at the crossroads and it was important for leadership to adopt a listening and caring approach at resolving the crisis.

He wrote: “How incredulous that President Akufo-Addo could afford to jet out of town hobnobbing with American legislators at the 45th annual legislative conference of the black caucus in Atlanta, USA when his own country’s legislature is in crisis — a crisis occasioned by leadership paralysis and a blatant refusal by the government he leads to present a new 2022 budget which addresses the widespread agitations of Ghanaians.

President Akufo-Addo has amply demonstrated just how much he loves to cruise in his ultra-luxury US$14,000-per-hour executive charter, at the least opportunity, but not at this time when his backyard is on fire. I sincerely wonder how he will be perceived by these US legislators with all the distressing news from Ghana.

Our democracy is at the crossroads and this is the time for leadership—a listening, caring, sensitive, and bridge-building leadership that takes us away from the edge of the precipice.”
