Prez Mahama Should Also Vacate His Seat If He Can’t Stand The Heat…
Outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) Youth Activist, John Kumah has taken a swipe at President John Mahama for just acting as an admiring onlooker while his National Security Advisor made disparaging remarks about Ghanaian workers.
Speaking on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo”, the NPP Youth Activist vented his spleen on the President, imploring him to resign if he thinks he also cannot stand the heat emerging from the labour front.
As if to re-echo the comments by Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah (rtd), the NPP Youth activist wants President Mahama to abdicate his seat if the challenges confronting the nation appears overwhelming to him.
“If you’re a President who Ghanaians voted for and you too think the problems are too numerous and so, you cannot solve it; then resign. Just stepped down and tell us you’re tired and cannot work anymore so that we also see that you cannot do the work well.”
Brigadier Nunoo-Mensah, speaking over the weekend, challenged the striking workers, stating that they should exit the country if they think “the kitchen is too hot” for them.
“Every Tom, Dick and Harry gets up and is calling for a strike. If you don’t want the job Ghana is not a police state, take your passport and get out of this country. If you can’t sacrifice like what some of us have don’t then get out. If the kitchen is too hot for you, get out”.
To him, several strike actions on the labour front are illegal and a sign of indiscipline.
But his call sparked controversy in the public domain, particularly from workers in the country, as they spewed their disappointments in the National Security Advisor.
Responding to the remarks by former military officer’s, John Kumah, who was recently called to the bar, supported his party’s stance that the President should dismiss him as proof that he does not associate himself and the administration with the statement made by the National Security Advisor.
“If the President feels that he doesn’t agree with him, let him come out to sack him to prove that it is indeed true that he does not side with him.”
He further urged government officials to exude humility as they steer the affairs of the country.
He asked the officials to realize that “today, they are in power; they should exercise it in humility. And they should express deeper understanding of our issues. They should have a deeper understanding of the hardships Ghana is facing now” knowing very well that their tenure will come to an end.
