The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to resign.
The call follows what the party describes as the mismanagement of the economy by the Akufo-Addo-led government since assuming office.
According to the CPP, President Akufo-Addo has not honoured his promise regarding the fight against galamsey and the protection of the public purse.
Speaking at an event organised to commemorate Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day, Wednesday, 21 September 2022, General Secretary of the party, Nana Yaa Gyantuah said: “Almost all our water bodies have been destroyed because of galamsey… I think it is time for him to resign. I think it is time for Nana Akufo-Addo to put down his job and allow competent people to take over.”
She noted that the CPP will be able to turn the fortunes of the country around if given the chance.
“We the CPP will go strictly to all procurement rules to reduce infractions in government spending and limit looting and even erase loot and share,” she said.
She added: “We would also ensure that the law that allows foreign investors to repatriate 100 percent profits will be amended to a 60 percent share.”
The party further cited the depreciation of the cedi, high inflation rate and the frequent hike in fuel prices, as reasons the President ought to step down.
