Savings of numerous Ghanaians plunged into dire economic mess – Dela Sky fires Akufo-Addo –

Legal practitioner and media personality Richard Dela Sky has strongly criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo‘s government, accusing it of economic mismanagement amidst the ongoing power crisis, locally known as “dumsor,” in Ghana.

Sky lambasted the government’s handling of the situation, highlighting the economic hardships faced by Ghanaians due to power outages and the apparent collapse of the Cedi.

He expressed concern over the impact on workers across various sectors, noting that many are struggling to afford basic necessities and facing challenges due to frequent power outages affecting food preservation.

Sky also criticised the government’s response, calling it passive and warning of potential electoral consequences if urgent action is not taken to address the pressing issues faced by citizens.

In a series of posts on social media, Sky pointed out the disconnect between the struggles of ordinary Ghanaians and the perceived extravagance of government officials, citing lavish events funded by government contracts while citizens suffer.

“Contrasts with the frivolity displayed by its upper ranks, who indulge in lavish birthday festivities for a notorious figure linked to the infamous escape of tax-funded guinea fowls, a scandal symbolizing alleged mismanagement and flight.

“Such events, funded perhaps with profit from government contracts paid for by the very citizens left in darkness, while the light stays on for a lavish birthday party for just one elite, underscore a disturbing disconnect with the struggles of the average Ghanaian.

“It is profoundly insulting that this government, which rose to power on commitments to rectify a power crisis mishandled by its predecessor, now blatantly disregards the demands of its citizens for a predictable load-shedding timetable.

“Too soon, they seem to have forgotten how they came to form a government. The concerns of the citizenry no longer seem to matter to them. This neglect transcends policy failure; it is a profound betrayal of public trust,” Richard Sky stated.

He emphasized that the government’s neglect of citizen demands for a predictable power supply schedule represents a betrayal of public trust, especially considering the promises made during their rise to power.
