Ghanaians are paying a price for voting for Akufo-Addo because of his fluency in English – Murtala Nkrumah

Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, a Tamale Central Member of Parliament (MP), says Ghanaians should be cautious in their hopes of President Akufo-Addo to improve the economy. 

This, he claims, is because Mr Akufo-Addo, even as a Minister in the former Kufuor administration, failed to successfully manage the sectors to which he was allocated. 

Despite admitting that managing government issues is tough, Murtala Mohammed stated that the Akufo-Addo administration could have performed better in light of the campaign pledges it made. 

The MP argued in an interview on Prime Morning on Friday that the President has a terrible leadership record, which he said is evident in the current handling of the country's economic woes and difficulties.

It was really enlightening that you have someone who had previously worked in government. He served in President Kufuor's government as a Minister, and we should be aware that he performed abysmally in both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, two ministries in which he served. 

"It's apparent that as a Minister of Justice, we witnessed what happened when there were several bad situations; cases that harmed his career." He should have realized how tough it was to run even a Ministry. Murtala Mohammed told Jay Foley, "His record, the verdict at the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General was a fiasco, and everyone knows he lost countless cases he even supervised."

"Some of us knew he wouldn't fulfill," he says, "because I dealt with him as Secretary-General of the All African Students Union while he was Minister of Foreign Affairs, and I've had multiple interactions with him." It's not about making a joke out of English; it's about delivering, and it's evident that we're in trouble." 

He claimed that President Akufo-public Addo's speaking talents and tempting promises may have won him the favor and interest of Ghanaians to lead the country.
