Talk is cheap; we want to see action – Methodist Bishop tells Mahama
The Methodist Bishop of Obuasi Diocese, Rt. Rev. Stephen Richard Bosomtwe-Ayensu has called on President John Mahama to ‘talk less and do more’.
According to him, the president must be seen to be working because Ghanaians are tired of assurances that Ghana’s socio-economic conditions would improve.
Rev. Bosomtwi-Ayensu made the comment on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday.
He said Ghanaians are languishing in abject poverty because government has turned a blind eye on what he described as the ‘spiraling increases’ in goods and services.
The Methodist Bishop reiterated the urgent need for government to institute more practical measures for reviving the country’s economy.
‘Talk is cheap what we need is action. Ghanaians are tired of the assurance to fulfill the Better Ghana Agenda promise,’ he exclaimed.
Rev. Bosomtwi-Ayensu wondered why Ghana was wallowing in abject poverty, and queried what had become of the various natural resources the country is endowed with.
He cautioned government against the ‘profligate’ expenditure at the expense of the bread and butter issues confronting the citizenry.
The Methodist Bishop was quick to add that his critique of the Mahama-led administration is not out of malice.
Rev. Bosomtwi-Ayensu therefore urged President Mahama to stop the rhetorics and find an antidote to the economic crisis. According to him, Ghanaians cannot continue to endure the hardships in the country because they are unbearable. Story by Ghana/Adomonline.com/Adwoa Gyasiwaa
