Our Leaders Are "Looking Face" People - TV3 Presenter Jabs Akuffo Addo On ECOWAS Decisions

The President of Ghana and the Chairman of ECOWAS made some profound statements concerning the coup d'etat that recently occurred in Guinea and ways to avoid such incidents from occurring. Nana Akufo Addo suggested that the ECOWAS should institute a law where no president will go a third term. This has raised a lot of controversies with some in support of his idea, but others disdaining it.

On the TV3 Morning show "NewDay", the morning show host and renowned journalist Johnie Hughes expressed his disappointment in the ECOWAS as well as the Chairman for the statements he made. He mentioned that our leaders are too hypocritical and "looking faces" people. He added that the same people who sent well wishes to presidents in their fourth term now want to put an end to it. In ECOWAS old people are fighting with young people over jobs.

He added that the top ranks of our African leaders were given the opportunity when they were youth such as former President Kufuor, and our current president Akufo Addo. With this opportunity they had as a youth, they were able to realize that they were matured enough to take up positions as leaders. The old people are now begging the presidency to stay on a little longer and let the youth remain at home till they are satisfied.

Most youths do not get the opportunity they had when they were youth because they have not served the party and did not help them to come to power. He added that when you talk to young people you feel that they have lost hope in the leaders and the country at large. He said he had a conversation with the winner of the talented kids show who had won a one week trip to Dubai.

The young boy told the journalist that he was not going to return to the country again because things are hard in the country. Even the little boy has lost hope in the country. He added that the ECOWAS should stop the long talks and act.
