”Be careful of the bootlickers who are only interested in singing praises and not telling you the true representation of what is going on in Ghana. The situation could cripple your government and make you the worst President of Ghana if you fail to accept the bitter truth,” Political scientist Samuel Boateng has told President Akufo-Addo.
The political scientist was responding to President Akufo-Addo’s response to the calls for him to reshuffle his ministers.
He described President Akufo-Addo as someone who hates the truth and is only interested in having people praise him all the time.
He has cautioned the government to tread cautiously, otherwise, the breaking of the 8-year-jinx would be a hoax.
”Breaking the 8 is not by mouth. Your sterling achievements would make Ghanaians vote for you to break the 8. You should have affected lives with good governance, but if you fail in doing that, you will bring Nyankopon as flag bearer Ghanaians will vote you out,” he added.
He advised the president to accept the bitter truth and heed the call from Ghanaians who voted for him and change direction to make the country better.
He further opined that Akufo-Addo’s leadership is characterised by friends, family and cronies and ”so he is finding it difficult to crack the whip and make changes”.
The bootlickers he added, are only loyal to him for appointing them and so are afraid of telling him the truth.
”He should listen to Ghanaians if he wants his government to progress and stop the love for bootlickers,” he concluded.
