Akufo-Addo not a listening president – Chief Biney

The Deputy National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says President Akufo-Addo has turned deaf ears to the plights of Ghanaians.

Chief Hamilton Biney says the President has ignored even his New Patriotic Party (NPP) members over their calls for a ministerial reshuffle.

“The president, for me, is not a listing president because even if you have your own party people telling you to do what we call reshuffle because they think that some ministers or members of government are not performing, and you come out to say that those people talking are NDC or because they want work to do… forgetting that when he wanted to be president, he almost went on his knee,” he stated.

Chief Biney argued that critiques help in managing the affairs of the country as they enable the government to be informed of current happenings.

His comments follow Mr Akufo-Addo’s declaration that there is no basis to sack Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

Speaking on Kumasi-based OTEC FM on Monday, October 17, the president explained that Mr Ofori-Atta has discharged his duties “excellently” and cannot be relieved of his post.

He added that Ken Ofori-Atta cannot be blamed for the current economic woes the country is facing.

But Chief Biney thinks otherwise.

“He [Ken Ofori-Atta] should be sacked, but the president is saying that we shouldn’t blame him; he won’t sack him. His own people are calling for his head,” he said in an interview on Prime Morning.

He wants Ghanaians to boldly express their frustrations, adding that the Akufo-Addo-led government has been a disappointment.
