Martin Kpebu, a private attorney, has criticized President Akufo-Addo for the “poor management” of the country’s finances.

He claims that as a result of the President’s poor performance, Ghanaians now view former President Mahama as more capable.

Martin Kpebu said on Newsfile on Saturday that the economic crisis and the “President’s lack of willpower to tackle corruption” have made John Mahama seem like a “saint.”

“John Mahama was the vampire we had never seen in history, and we believed he was the worst, and that will be the last,” We had said so much against John Mahama believing that the “Messiah” Akufo-Addo had arrived that when you talk to people behind the scenes, they find it difficult to back their own comments, he said.

Nothing, in his opinion, “keeps him [President Akufo-Addo] from quitting today.”

In order to remove President Akufo-Addo, Mr. Kpebu contends that Ghanaians must express strong public discontent with his administration’s actions.

“We must display the outrage of the public. Do not view it that way if you believe that by expressing our indignation in public, we are reaching out to John Mahama. No, something else might occur if we remove Akufo-Addo; it’s not a given that John Mahama will take his place immediately.

After discussions with IMF representatives earlier this week, the administration is now looking to the IMF for assistance since the nation is currently experiencing an economic crisis.

The cost of fuel has been steadily rising over the past few months, pushing up transportation costs by 20%.

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) reports that as of June 2022, the inflation rate was 29.8%, the highest since December 2003.

According to the GSS, transportation accounted for 41.6% of the inflation rate, followed by household equipment and maintenance (39.6%), housing, water, gas, and electricity (38.4%), personal care and miscellaneous (31.7%), recreation, sports, and culture (31.3%), food, and non-alcoholic beverages (30.7 percent ). The inflation rates for these items were higher than the national average.
