Auditor-General’s Leave: Akufo-Addo using Presidency to settle personal scores – A Plus

Social Commentator and Founder of The People’s Project (TPP) Kwame Asare Obeng has said it’s sad that Akufo-Addo who is an astute lawyer is using the Presidency to settle personal scores.

“Nana Addo who should know better and act like a Nelson Mandela has reduced the Presidency to a platform for settling scores. Now he wants to even settle 70-years-old scores. (Kwame Nkrumah and JB Dankwa). It is shameful. Even John Dramani Mahama the “incompetent dead goat” was not this impulsive and vindictive.” He said in a post on his Facebook page.

According to him, there was a lot expected from Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo but he has been the worst President in the history of the country.

“Every area where we diehard supporters of Nana Addo expected him to do better he has done worse!!! Stop this practice of removing the IGP, CEOs and CDS when the government changes. Akufo Addo has added the electoral commissioner and the Auditor-General. (Who doesn’t know that the very day the NPP leaves power the electoral commissioner will have to pack out of her office before she is sacked?) Stop victimization of perceived opposition businessmen, Akufo Addo has done worse.”

He indicated that Akufo-Addo’s marking scheme is different from the marking scheme of the “incompetent ones” and that he’s failed woefully.

“Nana Addo does not simply understand that the marking scheme we use for him or our expectation of him is totally different from what we use for the so-called “incompetent” ones. He continues to behave like that pastor’s son who always tries to prove that he is more gangster than the street kids but don’t understand why he the pastor’s son is punished the most.”

On issues bothering the Auditor General who was asked to proceed on leave, A Plus said “What is the meaning of the independence of the Auditor General? I won’t be surprised if his latter-day supporters defend him by saying John Dramani Mahama did worse. What do you expect of people who in opposition said someone is incompetent but after coming to power and realizing how useless they rather are coined a tern, “the alternative is empty” meaning they know for a fact that they are useless but they are better than the incompetent ones. When did governance of this country, people live for that matter turn into a competition of who is more useless?”
