The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described President Nana Akufo-booing Addo’s at the Global Citizen festival as a reflection of Ghanaian youth mood.
According to a statement signed by Sammy Gyamfi, the party’s National Communications Officer, the “action of the youth reflects an overwhelming vote of no confidence” in the government.
“The events of that day were unprecedented, as no sitting Ghanaian President had ever been subjected to such ridicule and embarrassment, at least under the Fourth Republic.”
The NDC also slammed attempts to blame it for the President’s booing, despite indicators such as soaring inflation highlighting the cost-of-living crisis.
It stated that blaming political opponents will not solve “the mess” overseen by the Akufo-Addo administration.
According to the opposition party, this is “not only insulting to Ghanaians’ sensibilities, but also highlights the fact that this government and their hired apologists are simply oblivious to our current reality, or perhaps they are underestimating the Ghanaian people’s anger.”
“The youth’s frustrations on that fateful day perfectly reflect the excruciating and frustrating times in which Ghanaians currently find themselves,” the party added.
The NDC also argued that youth disaffection highlighted the need for a plan to create long-term, meaningful jobs.
