Nana Aba Anamoah’s rantings, as much as they were misplaced, also showed the dearth of knowledge she has on happenings within the political system.
She is admonishing President Akufo-Addo not to remind Ghanaians of what Mahama did wrong but to tell us what he has done upon the assumption of power.
She particularized her attention on the Volta Region since the President mentioned some of the bad policies of the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
The lady is frustrated. As a huge beneficiary of the largesse the NDC government constantly gifted to some people for no justifiable reasons, the absence of same has brought in its wake a sort of famine she cannot withstand.
Mahama vulgarily displayed opulence and some went to this media person.
Now to her narrow-minded viewpoint, she doesn’t want Mr. President to talk about the ills that characterized the Mahama government but to concentre on what his administration has done for Ghanaians.
It beggars the question, what is Mahama campaigning on? The past in relation to the present or just the future? Her darling John Mahama is telling us the ‘good things’ he did in office and contrasting same with what is happening presently under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. So why shouldn’t the President remind Ghanaians of the poverty of leadership that was served them under Mahama? Nana Aba Anamoah, with the greatest of respect, spoke out of an imagination that can be described as warped.
I am dumbfounded the impression that things don’t seem to have gone well under Nana Addo. When you practise armchair journalism and make Instagram the only place to source information from, you come to such jaundiced conclusions.
In case she did not follow the President’s tour of the Volta Region, let me jolt her sleepy memory a bit. The President visited schools where students were happy to meet the man who had made it possible for them to go to school freely. The students in the Volta Region are enjoying Free SHS.
Jobs? Hasn’t she heard about NaBCo? Or she was told that graduates from the Volta Region were excluded? Planting for Food and Jobs was not exclusive to a few regions, the Volta Region is enjoying it. The list is endless.
Having gone for months without being in the news for whatever reasons, Nana Aba Anamoah clearly wanted to use this episode to propel herself into the media limelight once again.
