Popular Ghanaian television presenter, Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM), has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to resolve the issues facing the country during an interview on TV XYZ with Agyeman Prempeh.
According to KSM, during several interviews and rallies prior to the 2008 elections, Akufo-Addo, who was the then leader of the opposition NPP, called out the Atta Mills government for not doing enough to fix the economy and the country, and now that he’s in charge of the country, he has to solve the challenges facing citizens as he said to the president at the time when he was in opposition.
“Yes, he told Mills that ‘fix the economy, so it’s not anything new. Why are we Ghanaians pretending that we haven’t heard of this before? Nana Addo was the first to say it. He told Mills that there was hardship in the country, so fix it,” he said.
