Some Ghanaians are accusing former President John Agyekum Kufuor of repeating the same set of assurance every new year without adding his voice to their suffering.
Mr. Kufuor is reported to have said 2019 will be a good year and things will be better for Ghanaians in general.
He encouraged Ghanaians to expect better things from the coming year and enjoy the Christmas season.
“Things are looking up and so my prayer really is that next year will be prosperous for our nation, for all of us inclusively and Ghana should move ahead”, he said.
“Let’s all be tolerant and patient and let’s have fellow feeling. We are all one and the same people in one country and this country is blessed really by God, so let’s enjoy the Christmas and look ahead with confidence”. He added.
But genuine Ghanaians whose views MyNewsGh.com sampled from social media say the former President says the same things almost every year to buy time for Akufo-Addo.
See some comments:
“Smdh.. We need to line up all these misleaders and whip them very well”
“All the woes of Ghana are the cause of Kufuor who has got the gut to talk like that today.”
“You those people said 2018 is prosperous where is it. now you jump to next year is your last warning disgrace leaders”
