MOBO Award-winning musician, Samini, has criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the Cedi’s drastic decline in value relative to the US dollar.
This comes after Samini stated in a statement that he has lost a huge amount of money through investment due to the Cedis’ depreciation against the US dollar.
Samini, the “my own” crooner, went on to say that he cannot pretend that everything is fine in the country because people are crying every day about the country’s current economic hardship.
“Dear @NAkufoAddo. I supported you to bring change and stability.I believed in the vision and your concept of change! But with 2 years to go, my soul bleeds.
“Our investments wash away daily as the dollar openly whips our Cedi. Your people are crying. We cannot pretend all is well,” he tweeted.
Samini, notwithstanding, is hopeful that Ghana will over the prevailing economic crisis since it blessed with the ability to confront problems headon.
“We go keep hope alive and continue to soldier on. What’s a man without hope? We can only continue to pray for a better tomorrow. To all my high graders out there, I say it again ,we will #bealright!!!
“But if God has blessed Ghana with anything, it is our ability to stare difficulty right in the face and say, it will #bealright,”—he continued.
Samini concluded by urging the President, who had begged for the mandate to govern, to deal with indiscipline and get Ghana back to work.
“Ghana must work again! Where is the Nana Addo who begged us for the mandate?
The indiscipline in high and low places of government must be checked,” he appealed.
Samini was one of the few celebrities who came out in force to support President Nana Akufo-Addo, particularly during his re-election campaign in 2020. He even wrote a song and performed it on National Patriotic Party (NPP) campaign platforms, extolling his virtues and urging voters to keep Nana Addo in office.
