Most importantly, Mr. Ablakwa claims that during his speech, President Akufo-Addo ought to have apologized to the populace for the poor management that has destroyed the economy.

“Akufo-Addo ought to have expressed regret to Ghanaians for what we have endured. We arrived here thanks to his actions, programs, and policies.

“Bad economic management has led to fiscal irresponsibility, borrowing binge where some appointees attempt to profit, and the decline of the cedi,” he stated on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen.

Mr Ablakwa stressed he expected the President to accept responsibility. To him, despite the global challenging ecosystem, countries with good leaders and policies have not suffered as Ghana is suffering now.

“The president has not accepted responsibility for the severity of the situation. Nobody can dispute that it all comes down to leadership decisions.

He said, “I am quite disappointed and most people were expecting the President to come out, accept responsibility and apologize in his message. If you look at Ukraine who is suffering bombs, they are still doing better than us.

On Sunday, President Akufo-Addo spoke to the general public for the first time on the state of the economy.

He acknowledged that the country is in crisis but also provided a list of steps his administration has made to lessen the impact on the populace.
