Manasseh Azure Awuni has criticized Forbes hardly for crowing H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as the African Man of the year
The investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni said Forbes didn’t do enough research work before choosing president Akufo Addo as the African Of The Year.
He indicated that the Ghana beyond aid agenda which the president is pushing has been an empty rhetoric mantra.
Manasseh took his Facebook page to criticize the global media for giving the award to H.E Akufo Addo. He stated that the citizens of Ghana see things differently from what Forbes see.
He also noted that, there is hardship under the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo led government and people are suffering.
”A prophet they say is not honored in his home, sometimes it’s for a good reason. Those at home see what outsiders don’t see. I read somewhere that he has made Ghana, our economy, one that relies on it own resources. A reason he was awarded the African of the year” Manasseh Azure Awuni wrote on his Facebook page.
“They do not know “Ghana beyond aid” mantra is an empty rhetoric. They do not know the man championing is borrowing like hell and riding in chartered flight begging for free vaccines” Manasseh Azure further wrote.
Manasseh thinks if the award was organized by a local organization he can’t even win Ghanaian of the month to talk of African of the year. If they go by the same criteria.
In president Akufo Addo’s reaction to the honor done him, he thinks the world has come to appreciate the good works of the NPP Nana Addo led government and it is an inspiration for us.
