Akufo-Addo sold his father’s properties and borrowed to fund campaign – Imoro Ayarna alleges
Rhodaline Imoro Ayarna, a former Vice-Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has advised Ghanaians to quit blaming Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the country’s problems and resource mismanagement.
Imoro Ayarna, speaking on XYZ TV’s ‘Women on the Frontline’ show, told GhanaWeb that the President had spent so much money on his campaigns before gaining power that he is now using the presidency to pay off those debts.
“Don’t blame Nana Addo, I always tell people. Since 1949, he has been paying off his obligations. What do you want him to do with the houses they’ve sold and the money they’ve spent now that he’s in power? “She asked a question in Twi.
Ghana’s economy is currently experiencing a number of difficulties as the cost of products and services continues to rise. On the international market, the Ghana cedi continues to depreciate versus major trading currencies.
This has sparked extensive debate about government expenditures and the president’s “misplaced” priorities.
Meanwhile, economic managers have stated that measures are being taken to ensure that the country returns to pre-pandemic levels.
Imoro Ayarna, speaking on Ghana’s politics, said that it has become more competitive rather than development-driven, as it was during Kwame Nkrumah’s time.
“It’s becoming more competitive (political).” Busia and my father will meet and talk… they joke around, but now it appears that there is a lot of hatred… a lot of people have bad faith, but it wasn’t always like this. You could pay each other visits; the Akufo Addos were my sister’s classmates at school. It wasn’t quite so vengeful. It wasn’t so tense; everyone was alive, and we were all having fun.
She, on the other hand, bemoaned the fact that politics has become a lucrative business in Ghana.
“If I hear now that people are taking money from the government, it doesn’t bother me since I’ve seen worse… You didn’t go into politics to make money back then; you went into politics to make money. My father was in politics, but he left to gain money, and then he returned “she said.-
