Akufo-Addo should top global list of heartless Presidents – Ablakwa

North Tongu Lawmaker Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says Ghana’s President is supposed to rank very high on the global league of the most insensitive and heartless leaders.

The Legislator is one of the persons who has been on the neck of the President to account for his travels since it’s being paid with the taxes of the Ghanaian.

However, the government has failed to account for the President’s travel expenses for the year although an urgent question was filed in Parliament by the former Deputy Education Minister Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

The Member of Parliament(MP) for Abetifi, Bryan Acheampong has said that there is the need for the President’s foreign travels to be kept confidential.

“My advice to the National Security Minister is that he should reclassify the President’s travels; the present and past, from confidential to secret or top secret. We have to be sensitive.”

“If the President decides that he needs to make a quick trip to Mali, even if he decides to go with the presidential flight, using flight tracker, you will know this is the tail number of Ghana’s presidential flight, and you are able to track it. Is that how you want to expose our President?” he quizzed.

He said there is no way he will allow for the President’s travels to be toyed with and played politics with.

But Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa believes that the position of government on this is an indication of how they are insensitive to the plight of the people considering the times that the country finds itself in.

He was shocked that such a President will want to impose extra taxes on the citizens just so he can fuel his extravagant lifestyle while they suffer.

He said in a post shared on social media that “A President who refuses to account for his profligate, sybaritic travels and still seeks to impose even more draconian taxes so he can keep financing his extravagant lifestyle must rank very high on the global league of the most insensitive and heartless leaders. Kill the killer taxes!”.
