Regina Yaa Titi Okrah, co-host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM has sent a fiery message to Agric. Minister, Owusu Afriyie Akoto over his presidential ambition.
The broadcaster, without mincing words, said the minister would never be president of this country. He said the only time he could be president is if he creates his own village and ruled them.
She claims that given how poorly Mr Afriyie Akoto has performed in his role as agriculture minister, he shouldn’t have pursued his ambition to be the first gentleman of the realm.
According to Media General’s Northern region Bureau Chief, William Evans-Nkum, while looking at the former two-term Kwadaso MP’s political accomplishments after gaining office as a legislator in 2009, he did well despite his party being in opposition during the time he was a legislator.
Mr. Evens-Nkum pointed out that his rage was the reason he wasn’t a particularly inspiring leader. He served as the minister of food and agriculture till resigning two days ago after leaving the legislature in 2017 and President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo appointed him to that position.
“In your time alone, mass cocoa spraying ceased. Free fertilizers were being sold to farmers. The hike in food prices is unprecedented and now food inflation is 41% in Ghana’s 54% inflation rate. Planting for Food and Jobs, what did you do with it?
You spent millions of dollars to fight the Fall Army Worm (FAW) and you haven’t rendered any better account to Ghanaians on the amount.
And you still want us to vote for you as President when you couldn’t even manage a single ministry? It will be better if you create your own village and rule them because you will never be president. Even the primaries you will not win,” she was confident.
