A former political science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr Richard Amoako Baah, has revealed that he is forced to wear a nose mask and hat just so he could hide from members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) who constantly accost and attack him for the lower-than-expected performance of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to Dr Amoako Baah, things are not looking good under the Akufo-Addo-led government.
Speaking on the Citizen Show on Accra100.5FM on Tuesday, 27 July 2021, Dr Amoako Baah, who is also a leading member of the NPP, expressed disappointment in his own government.
He said: â€œAnytime I come to Accra, I wear face mask and a hat because when people meet you they want to attack youâ€.
He said he would not say Nana Akufo-Addo has failed as president but it is evident that all is not well in the country.
â€œThey insult me and say NPP knows nothing and they even say this in Kumasiâ€.
â€œOn two occasions, Iâ€™ve been told this in the face and one is a big businessman who said NPP is a disgrace to itselfâ€, Dr Amoako Baah said.
â€œThis is the truth because the aspirations people had for this party has not materializedâ€, he told host Bobie Ansah, adding: â€œBefore the elections, I told Nana Addo in his house that he will win even without campaigning because people were fed up with NDC and Mahama and we put all our trust in Nana Addoâ€¦â€
â€œSome in the party feel they are the only wise ones; they donâ€™t consult anyoneâ€, he complained.
â€œWho in Ghana today can confidently say all is well in the country?â€ he asked.
â€œItâ€™s not true. All is not wellâ€, he insisted.
Dr Amoako Baah said: â€œNana Addoâ€™s government does not belong to only Nana Addo, it is his uncle Danquahâ€™s governmentâ€.
â€œThe aspirations people had in J.B Danquah was transferred to Nana Addo and that is why when Nana Addo came, people compared him to Kwame Nkrumah. I wouldnâ€™t go far to say Nana Addo has failed but things are not going wellâ€.
â€œThe finance minister said the country is broke and have you seen a country that is developing or improving that is broke?â€
