NPP gov’t is like a well packaged key soap bar in a smartphone box at Circle – Manasseh Azure

“The difference between the expectations of an Akufo-Addo government and what we have witnessed is vast. It appears we bought the latest smartphone on December 7, 2016, at Circle, and when we got home, we realised it was a bar of key soap”

The above quote is attributed to renowned Journalist Manasseh Azuri Awuni on his assessment of the Akufo-Addo led government he believes has hugely let Ghanaians down.

According to the investigative journalist in a Facebook post sighted by MyNewsGh.com, he expects some honest persons within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to tell government that what they expected prior to the 2016 elections is far from what is being delivered.

“I’m sure the very honest people in the NPP will tell you they expected better from an Akufo-Addo government than what we have seen so far. You may have a point in your submissions, but I must say, if Jesus Christ had told me this was how an Akufo-Addo government was going to be, I would have doubted him”, he stated.

Because of the work I do, I meet and speak with people from different backgrounds — the young and old, public servants and private sector players, people in government and those in opposition, politicians and civil society activists, Ghanaians and diplomats.

We often discuss Ghana. I have made an observation in their general views in the past few years. When John Mahama was president, people often said they were disappointed at the way he was running the country.

They said they lost hope in the Mahama government. When Nana Akufo-Addo became president, people say they have lost hope in Ghana and have given up on our country. It appears the second one is more serious.

The difference between the expectations of an Akufo-Addo government and what we have witnessed is vast. It appears we bought the latest smartphone on December 7, 2016, at Circle, and when we got home, we realised it was a bar of key soap.

Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, I’m sure the very honest people in the NPP will tell you they expected better from an Akufo-Addo government than what we have seen so far. You may have a point in your submissions, but I must say, if Jesus Christ had told me this was how an Akufo-Addo government was going to be, I would have doubted him.

Nana Akufo-Addo still has some time left to make a difference, but judging from what I have witnessed so far, I must say I’m underwhelmed. And for the first time since 2004, I’m wondering if I should vote in 2020.
