Concerned Ghanaian Citizens in the US Demonstrated Against Nana Akufo Addo at the UN General Assembly Session in New York.
Some concerned Ghanaian resident in the US took to the streets of New York on September 26th to demonstrate against H. E. Nana Akufo Addo and NPP Government during his visit to the USA at just ended UN General Assembly.
These concerned citizens addressing some of the International media present at the UN grounds and the general public, voiced their displeasure about the high level of corruption and scandals engulfing the country Ghana, the insecurity and the lack of safety for the citizenry despite the unprecedented number of Ministers in charge of security.
The NPP government, they claim engages in Nepotism never seen in Ghana’s democratic dispensation.
Almost all high-level governmental positions in the country are led by family members of the Nana Akufo Addo. The finance Ministry is led by a cousin, the Secretary to the President is the nephew, the Transport Minister a cousin, the Minister for Works and Housing a cousin. Ghanaians can count about 60 family member in the government excluding close friends and associates.
However, within the last few days, there was a news media publication attributed to the NPP communication of the USA saying, the NDC USA have hired Togolese to demonstrate against Nana Akufo Addo in New York.
Speaking to Mr. Evans Asigbee the NDC USA Chapter Organizing Secretary, he emphatically denied that allegation.
Mr Asigbee, who took part in the demonstration as concerned citizen indicated that the demonstration was attended by concerned Ghanaians from New York, New Jersey, Washington Metropolis, Virginia, Maryland, Texas and Atlanta. Unlike the NPP who brought party officials all the way from Ghana at the taxpayers’ expense to do photo ops in support of the President and paying a few NPP members in the US to join them.
The Togolese just like the Chinese who stood or were stationed side by side of the concerned Ghanaians happened to be demonstrating against their respective Government due to dissatisfaction of happenings in their own countries not different from what’s the happenings in Ghana.
Our investigations confirm to the fact that, both the Togolese and the Chinese were there side by side of the Ghanaians by mere coincidence and not by design.
As a matter of fact, there were citizens of many other countries that were out there to demonstrate against their respective Governments, and none was hired to do so.
It’s was and it is very appalling for the NPP to conjecture such blatant lies that hired Togolese by the NDC , instead of addressing the issues raised by the concerned citizens of Ghana, confronting the people of Ghana under this super incompetent Nana Akufo Addo’s Government. The lack of jobs, the lack of educational facilities for our brothers and sisters, the free fall of the Cedi to US dollars, the massive corruption, the killings of Journalist, voter intimidation and many more, they rather embarked on smear propaganda typical of them.
Mr. Asigbee in closing said, we as Ghanaians everywhere needs to be very concerned about the state of affairs in our country today and stop being partisan, for Ghana belongs to all Ghanaians and not just members of the ruling party alone.
The good people of Ghana goes to benefit everyone and not just a few, as the case may be under this supper incompetent NPP Government full of friends and close relatives, draining the fortunes of Ghana to rich themselves, whiles the majority of the people of Ghana are subjected to hardship, lack of basic amenities and infrastructures under the super incompetent leadership of Nana Akuffo Addo who lacks vision.
