Former lecturer at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr. Richard Amoako Baah, has urged Ghanaians to keep pressing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for accountability despite his resistance to do so.

He is especially worried about Ghana’s current economic crisis, which he claims has the potential to cause the system as a whole to crash.

Despite the difficulties, he is concerned that the president is not taking advice and is being permitted to rule the country whatever he pleases. He asserts that the current situation must alter.

“You give him advice, but he ignores it. You are left with no choice except to remain silent and observe him.

It’s time for us to stop acting as if the President, his friends, family, and cronies own the country and that we are just temporary workers in it. This is our country; it belongs to all of us.

No, we’re not. Unless we speak up right away. He stated this in an interview with Joy FM on September 29. “There will be nothing left, pretty much right now, nothing left,” he said.

Despite being a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Amoako Baah has been extremely critical of the president and his administration, particularly with regard to how they have handled the economy.

Some of the key indicators of the economic crisis Ghanaians are experiencing are an increase in living expenses, raging inflation, and a devaluing Ghana Cedi.

To help stabilize the economy and put it back on the path of growth, the government is reportedly in talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a projected US$3 billion rescue facility.

Insisting that everything was being done to turn the tide, the government has placed some of the responsibility for the headwinds on the Russia-Ukraine war and the COVID-19 pandemic.
