“The problem with our leaders is that if you see good in them, they disappoint you very quickly and there is a sense that I’m beginning to feel disappointed in President Akufo-Addo,” Professor Lumumba stated.
According to the Professor, “Akufo-Addo started very well. He had ideas talking about industrialisation in every district, he said he will look for Ghana beyond aid. The rhetoric was right but now as I watch him consistently, I’m beginning to see a mismatch between rhetoric and action.”
“When I see Members of Parliament going to parliament and saying the President’s wife deserves an allowance then I know the man whom I thought had great ideas is now down the periscope. That is my unfortunate verdict as I speak,” Professor Lumumba added.
