Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe, Lead Counsel for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the case involving the Electoral Commission and the opposition party, has chastised the Akufo-Addo government for messing up all the sectors in the country especially the banking sector.
This he claims, has left many Ghanaians unemployed, as a result of bad leadership.
Lawyer Tamakloe alleged that the current administration after collapsing several universal banks, intends to move the Ghana Police Service from CAP30 to SSNIT when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo wins his second term.
Commenting on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, he asserted that President Akufo-Addo has within three years collapsed 7 universal banks, 300 microfinance companies and several fund management institutions.
To him, it was unwise on the part of the Akufo-Addo government to collapse the various banks and other financial institutions, and spend over 16 billion Ghana Cedis to resolve 9 billion Ghana Cedis problem.
“If you are wise, will you do this? You have spent over 16 billion to resolve a 9 billion worth of problems in the banking sector and as we speak, people are in the house jobless. If directors and shareholders are the problem, you can deal with them but the fruits of their works can remain”, he slammed.
He held the view that if election are conducted today, President Akufo-Addo will lose and become a one term President; because of especially the banking sector reforms.
“I am telling you that if we are going to the polls today, Nana Addo will be a one term President…we have given you power and used it to collapse businesses. Ghanaians are not fools. The power of the Governor to close banks is drawn from Act 920; who passed the law? The truth is that Nana has come to collapse businesses,” he pointed out.
Edudzi Tamakloe further stated that if President Akufo-Addo claims to have initiated massive developmental projects and is scared of losing the 2020 elections, then the NPP should opt for use the current voter’s register for this year’s general election.
He challenged the Akufo-Addo led NPP government to go by the same standard if the party believes it had 1 million votes in the 2016 and even intends to increase the votes to 2 million in the 2020 general election.
