In May 2017 when the Akufo-Addo-led government was only about four months old, former moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Very Rev Professor Emmanuel Martey lashed out at some Ghanaians who had already begun strictly scrutinizing moves by the government.

In his opinion, it was too early for anyone to begin criticizing a government which had not even finished appointing officials.

Speaking in an interaction with the media on the sidelines of the launch of the Koforidua branch of the C4C Homeopathic Hospital he said, “So far as everybody agrees that we don't have adequate and excellent way of delivering health in this country, all past governments both NPP and NDC have not done well. Not Akufo-Addo's administration, they just came in a hundred and ten or so days. We cannot judge them.”

"All those unwise statements that Akuffo Addo has failed, he has done this, he has done that... And l have heard some of them. They have been there for eight years and they have not been able to do anything and they are querying those who just came. They are not even one year old. I'm calling upon those unwise people to stop and wait and pray that this present government delivers.”
