General News of Tuesday, 8 January 2019
With just two years into his presidency, Nana Akufo-Addo seems to be gaining some plaudits over the management of the country’s affairs with a number of Ghanaians praising him for introducing free secondary education and reducing unemployment in the country.
Commenting on the president’s performance over the period, a section of Ghanaians who spoke to GhanaWeb praised the president for such a feat in a rather short period of time.
Highlighting education and creation of jobs for the youth in the country by this government, many testified of their children and siblings being beneficiaries of the Free Senior High School policy which took off in the first term of President Akufo-Addo’s term in office insisting the Free SHS policy has saved them the trauma of ‘hustling’ for huge sums of money to enroll their wards into senior secondary school.
Others who spoke on the creation of jobs by this ruling government asserted that, the One-district, One-factory policy which was implemented by the NPP has helped curb the rate of unemployment in the country since the target for the project were the youth.
With all of these plaudits however, some Ghanaians still appear dissatisfied with the performance of the president. One such person lamented the poor governance style of the president insisting that the economy is not doing as well as it is supposed to, citing the reduced patronage of goods as his reason.
Another expressed regret for voting for the Akufo-Addo-led government over what he describes as the several failed promises by the president.
Watch below the views of some Ghanaians on two years of President Akufo-Addo’s administration.
