The National Coordinator of the pressure group Occupy Ghana, Nana Agyemang has described the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s hundred days in office as ‘so far so good’.
Some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have criticised the President’s 100 days describing it as a failure.
But speaking with Lantam Papanko on Ultimate Breakfast Show, Nana Agyemang expressed hope that things will get better when the President implements his promised policies.
According to him, the policies tabled in the President’s budget indicate that he is poised to improve the private sector by making the country great again.
He stated that the budget gives hope to investors and businesses.
‘Personally I think so far so good, its been lets say quite good…Putting aside the various issues we had with security and the like… Looking at the plans the President has for the country, we think that things are locking up, once the plans are implemented to the latter, we should have a favourable year in the country,’ he expressed hope.
Commenting on Delta Force and security issues, he applauded the President for not interfering in the work of the police.
‘For the first time, I don’t remember the last time though where we had the sitting President giving the police full authority to deal with hooligans in their party. It gives assurance that the President wants to promote independence of the police not the fact that the IGP was politically appointed,’ he said.
He described as ‘a step in the right direction’ measures put in place by the Akufo-Addo’s government to clamp down on ‘Galamsey’ operators who have been destroying the country’s water bodies adding that more needs to be done.
‘We shouldn’t compromise on legal aspect of things just because we want to satisfy a certain people,’ he suggested.
He said Ghanaians can judge the President if he is able to fulfuil his promises in the budget.
‘I don’t think 100 days is enough to judge the President’s performance, maybe six months or 12 months down the line, we can judge him, we can do so if by the end of the year, the promises in the budget have been implemented,’ he said.
