The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo yesterday 1st December, 2019 called off the referendum slated on 17th December, 2019. He cited the lack of broad, national consensus amongst key stakeholders and the populace.
It’s on this regard, that Businessman Oscar Yao Doe has once again chastised the President and the government for yet another failure under his watch. He gave the President 35% in terms of result and described it as not impressive.

SAD MOMENT FOR GHANA. BECAUSE OF SELF SERVING & FAMILY CONSIDERATION APPROACH IN GOVERNING, THIS IMPORTANT REFERENDUM EXERCISE WHICH COULD HAVE LED OUR COUNTRY INTO MORE DIVERSE POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT IN LOCAL GOVERNANCE HAS FAILED MISERABLY, BECAUSE THERE IS ZERO SUPPORT FROM TRADITIONAL LEADERS, CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS, RELIGIOUS ORGANISATIONS, ETC, EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS AN OVERWHELMING SUPPORT EARLIER, BUT THE POLITICAL ATMOSPHERE IS NOT RIGHT TO IMPLEMENT SUCH A FANTASTIC MOVE TO ENERGIES OUR PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT. THIS IS A BIG FAILURE ON PRESIDENT AKUFO ADDO'S WATCH… BIG DISAPPOINTMENT FOR DEEPENING DEMOCRACY IN GHANA.THE WORLD EVOLVES SO THEREFORE IF YOU TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE WICKEDNESS "KEN OFORI-ATTA, ERNEST ADDISON" AND CO HAVE DONE TO OUR LOCAL BUSINESSMEN AND WOMEN, CRASHING THEIR BUSINESSES INTO ASHES JUST LIKE THAT, THE SEVERE EFFECT ON GHANAIANS, AND THEN IN YOUR VIEW EVERYTHING IS PERFECT " USING DECEPTIVE WORDS LIKE " CLEANING THE BANKING SECTOR " REALLY!!! THAT CANNOT STAND THE TEST OF TIME. WE LIVED IN INTERCONNECTED WORLD, EVERY DECISION GOES A LONG WAY TO AFFECT PEOPLE'S LIVES. SO HOW YOUR DECISIONS AFFECT PEOPLE LIVES MATTERS, NOT HOW YOU FLAMED IT, HOW YOU LABELLED A BAD DECISION DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING, HOW THAT DECISION IMPACT ON PEOPLE'S LIVES IS WHAT MATTERS MOST " THE TRUTH MATTERS " IN MY VIEW PRESIDENT AKUFO ADDO LEADERSHIP IN TERMS OF RESULTS ARE NOT IMPRESSIVE AFTER ALMOST 3 YEARS IN OFFICE. I WILL GIVE HIM 35% MARK OUT OF WHICH THE FREE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL (SHS) ALONE WILL TAKE 30% BECAUSE THAT POLICY WAS A MASTER PIECE AND BOLD DECISION, EVEN THOUGH THE DILUTION OF THE DOUBLE TRACK SYSTEM IS TROUBLING, COSTING MORE PAIN TO STUDENTS. I WILL GIVE 3% TO HIS ACHIEVEMENTS ON INFRASTRUCTURE (ROADS, BRIDGES, OVERPASS, INTERCHANGE, HOSPITALS,CLINICS, SCHOOL BLOCKS, LANDMARK PROJECTS, ETC.) THEN I WILL REWARD THE REMAINING 2% TO THE NUMEROUS SOD-CUTTING AGENDA LED BY THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT DR BAWUMIA.( SOD-CUTTING DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING IF IT'S NOT EXECUTED) THE PRESIDENT HAVE 1 YEAR ,1 MONTH REMAINING TO PROOF TO GHANAIANS IF HE CAN REALLY TURN A CORNER. WHO KNOWS.
