Ghanaians have taken to social media to vent their frustration over what they describe as poor governance by the President Akufo-Ado-led administration.
Sharing their non-political views under the hashtag [#SpeakUp] most of these Ghanaians believe the time is now for them to speak against all the bad governance structure being run.
According to these people, they have been deceived by Akufo-Addo especially in the lead up to the 2016 election when he promised to protect the public purse, fight corruption and grow the economy…promises they feel the government has failed to deliver.
With the introduction of new taxes coupled with insecurity and an unstable economy, many Ghanaians believe Akufo-Addo has let them down and has not done justice to the faith they reposed in him.
