Former Employee of Joy FM and investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awini has reacted to incident that happened at the Global Citizens Festival involving President Akufo-Addo.
The ardent critic of Akufo-Addo regime says the occurrence over the weekend is a true reflection of the current government and the boos reflect the true state of affair.
In a post on his twitter feed, the freelance journalist did not mince words, hitting at the government in a supposed endorsement of the reaction at the festival.
According to Manasseh Azure Awini, what happened at the Global Citizens Festival is the truest voice of people unlike that of the paid praise and sycophants who will see nothing wrong with the current state of governance.
He added that, the president has two years to salvage his regime which he suggested to be a failed one calling the boos a referendum on his tenure.
His tweet on Sunday September 25 reads, “Mr. President, for their selfish goals, chiefs, paid praise singers and sycophants will continue to sign praises of you. But what you heard at the #globalcitizensfestival is the truest voice of the people, a referendum on your regime. You have two years to salvage it.”
Mr President , for their selfish goals, chiefs, paid praise singers and sycophants will continue to sing insincere praises of you. But what you heard at the #globalcitizensfestival is the truest voice of the people, a referendum on your regime. You have two years to salvage it.
