President of policy Think Tank, IMANI Africa has subtly replied President Akufo-Addo over comments that, Ghanaians are happy to have him as President.
In what appears to be a mockery of President Akufo-Addo’s statement, Franklin Cudjoe gave 20 reasons why Ghanaians are happy to have him as President.
On his tour in the Savannah Region, Nana Addo wondered why the Yapei-Kusawgu district was still underdeveloped even though they keep voting for the opposition party NDC.
However, assuring the Chiefs and people gathered at the function, he hinted that he is going to heed their cry because he is the best Ghanaians can have.
“But Yagbonwura, you are lucky, you have me as the President of Ghana. I’m going to do it for you. In the same way, no secondary school, no Senior Technical School, in the whole of Kusawgu area, ahhh, eiiiiiii”, he wondered.
“Yagbonwura I’m not here in a campaign, but I think I have said enough for you and your people Kusawgu to think about your vote in 2024,” he added.
The statement has received many reactions from Ghanaians, especially on social media.
Franklin Cudjoe adding his voice to the President praising himself listed 20 reasons why Ghanaians are lucky.
Here are Franklin Cudjoe’s reasons:
- We should be lucky he is the first to have a proper family and friends government instituted.
