Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has predicted that, may Ghanaians may not live to see the back of Akufo-Addo in the 2024 election.
The Member of Parliament says, his assertion is as a result of the current hardships Ghanaians are going through.
Taking a swipe at the President, The Minority Leader said the President should be ashamed of himself and apologise to Ghanaians for the hardship in the country.
The outspoken legislator, speaking on JoyNews‘ AM Show, said ex-President Mahama did not do any of what President Akufo-Addo is getting away with.
“John Dramani Mahama as President then did not do a quarter of what President Akufo-Addo is getting away with yet the Ghanaian people are quiet,” he said on Monday, September 5.
Suggesting Akufo-Addo would have been out of power if he had a way of getting rid of him, he would have without any hesitation.
“We are not running a system whereby we can change him overnight or we are not running a system whereby we can call for an immediate election respecting the tenets of the 1992 Constitution.
“But we must pray because many Ghanaians may not be able to live to vote him out because they will perish or die even before we get to 2024 given the continuing excruciating hardship he is subjecting Ghanaians to,” he added.
The Tamale South lawmaker thus asked President Akufo-Addo to admit boldly he has failed the country.
“When he was holding a gallon of petrol and said this is the price of it, today let him hold that gallon of petrol and tell us that I am a disappointing failure and I have failed the Ghanaian people and not ask us to thank him for being President of Ghana. He owes Ghanaians an apology.”
