Professor Ransford Gyampo, a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana, has advised the President to keep his gratitude for the people who elected him to office.
The reprimand was contained in an open letter that President Akufo-Addo posted on Facebook on Monday and addressed to him.
The lecturer asserts that the President should not act arrogantly, particularly in light of the current economic crisis.
He said that the President’s arrogance could hurt the chances of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and further stall the nation’s efforts to solve its economic problems.
“When you called the bluff of voters who were disappointed that their bad roads had not been fixed, you fell into the trap of arrogance that is frequently set by the almost unchecked exercise of power.This was uncharacteristic of a leader expected to lead in a crisis, undiplomatic, and unpresidential.
You shouldn’t show blatant indifference to the people you went to beg for four more years just because you’re leaving.
It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be concerned if people vote against the party that brought you to power.He emphasized that “Kufuor did not do this to the NPP.”
Therefore, Professor Gyampo advised the President to apologise for his previous statements that he does not fear voting for the opposition National Democratic Congress in 2024.
“Please accept my sincere apologies to all Ghanaians for your somewhat unpresidential remarks in response to the threats to vote against your party if some roads are not fixed.
Additionally, “come and address the nation on what you are doing to address the current economic hardships as well as what all Ghanaians must do, and end the regional tours immediately,” he added.
Prophet Kofi Oduro, a Ghanaian preacher, has also criticized President Akufo-Addo for what he describes as the President’s recent arrogance in a related development.
The founder of Alabaster International Ministries says that Akufo-Addo has lost his humility, which made him popular with voters when he ran for president.
The enthusiastic pastor took advantage of the opportunity to address his congregation on Sunday to warn the President about his pride and the repercussions that lie ahead.
He explicitly warned that Akufo-Addo’s government would be remembered as the worst in Ghanaian political history if he did not shed his pride.
“The Lord is telling me, pride brings everyone down, and I stand here with a heavy heart to respectfully say this to you, Sir.And you won’t be able to recover if you keep being proud.He emphasized that “your government will be the worst in this country’s history.”
“Your excellency, if you continue in the arrogance of speech and the pride of your life, you will never see solution and you will never see remedy,” the preacher went on to say.
I stand before you as a prophet and a man of God, and all I ask of you is that you humble yourself and repent.Ghana is doomed to ruin otherwise.
In the meantime, Akufo-Addo’s recent public statements are still the subject of scathing comments on social media.
