SONA 2024: President Akufo-Addo, you have failed with your vice president, Ato Forson.

Ato Forson

The head of the Minority Caucus in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, believes that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President, should bear equal responsibility for the “failure” of President Akufo-Addo’s administration.

He believes that President Akufo-Addo and his vice president have failed miserably and that Ghanaians should cast their ballots against them in the approaching elections in December.

Following the President’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, Dr. Ato Forson was seconding a resolution in Parliament and said the President had neglected to address important concerns impacting the nation, such as unemployment.

The State of the Nation Address (SONA) is in compliance with Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution, which mandates that the President deliver the speech at the start and end of each parliamentary session.

Every year, the President of the Republic delivers the State of the Nation Address (SONA) to Parliament, which covers economic, social, and budgetary matters.

In the President’s SONA,he failed to address the issue of unemployment, which affects two out of every three Ghanaians, according to Dr. Ato Forson.

Out of the approximately 33 million Ghanaians, he said that just roughly 11 million were employed, and he noted that the President needed to take immediate action due to such high unemployment rates.

Additionally, he said that supporting Vice President Bawumia, the flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), would mean endorsing the “third term of President Akufo-Addo.”

Dr. Ato Forson is pleading with Ghanaians to support former president John Dramani Mahama of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December presidential election because he thinks he has the magic wand to turn around the nation’s economic situation.

The Minority also thinks that when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his Vice, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, leave office, Ghanaians won’t notice their absence.
