It is not Akufo-Addo’s job to apologise to Ghanaians – Presidential Staffer

Dennis Miracles Aboagye, who works for the president, said that it is not Akufo-Addo's responsibility to apologize to Ghanaians for the country's current economic crisis.

He said that the president's job is to help Ghanaians get out of the economic trouble the country is in, not to say sorry.

Some Ghanaians on social media have been upset that Akufo-Addo hasn't apologized to them for the current economic crisis, which includes the IMF bailout, even though he was very against it. This led to his comment.

After his speech about the economy on October 30, some people on social media, like famous broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah, asked questions on Twitter with the caption "No apology." No responsibility was taken. "Nothing, nothing at all! "

On TV3's "The Big Issue," the host asked the president why he hadn't apologized to the people of Ghana after the country went to the IMF. Miracles Aboagye asked, "Why should I apologize?"

He continued, "I need to make this clear." When I speak, I speak as a Ghanaian. When I say "the people" and you also say "the people," whose words are you taking? Isn't it us all? The job of the president is not to come to us crying and apologizing. The job of the president is to find a way for us to get out of this situation.
