Over weekend Ghanaians witnessed a rather interesting spectacle at the Global Citizen Festival in Accra. The event which was held to create awareness about eradicating poverty saw President Akufo-Addo deliver the keynote address to the massive crowd. The president called in the youth to be proactive in finding solutions to the problems of Ghana. he noted that despite the effects of the Ukraine Russian war, his government was working to eradicate poverty.
However, the speech of the president ended with boos and jeers against the president. There were cheers at one points and boos at another point with some Ghanaians calling on President Akufo-Addo to walk away. The president might have been disappointed but he stayed on for some time. Today, Monday, September 26, 2022 on The Big Issue on TV3’s New Day programme, Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi, MP for Anyaa Sowutwom has explained that it could have been worse for Akufo-Addo.
Dr. Kissi mentioned that the booing was better than Macron who was slapped by someone in the crowd in France. He chose to look at the positives and not the small boos that came. He wondered why journalist and Ghanaian are not looking at the tourism aspect of the show and rather projecting the minor negatives of the show.
“I cry when we damage very good things in the country. It was an opportunity when Ghana was showing the arts and culture and instead of us talking about the positives to promote the tourism we are majoring in the minor things. Fortunately, this is not Macron being slapped which happened on TV. This is a few people” Dr. Kissi said
Dr. Kissi amusingly added that people were jeering at the president because they were overjoyed and they felt like doing something hyper. He applauded the President for being bold and addressing the crowd. He extoled the leadership qualities of the President and thanked him for transforming the country.
