Professor Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba who is the director of the Kenya anti-corruption Commission has labeled the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo as talking president.
In a Zoom interaction with Maxwell Nkansah, he said Akufo-Addo begun his tenure with a huge prospect but his administration has been dogged with a lot of questionable decisions that have vastly impoverished the average Ghanaian.
“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.
“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.
He however patted Nana Akufo Addo on the shoulders for having the right ideas and policies but lacking the willpower to implement them to the benefit of Ghanaians.
“He started very well. He had ideas talking about industrialization 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.”
