Following the heightened calls by a section of Ghanaians on President Akufo-Addo to
resign due to the current economic woes, Mr. Samuel Bryan Buabeng, Head of New Media
at the office of the President, says the President goes nowhere.
He insisted that the President would never move an inch since former President John Dramani
Mahama refused to resign in his days of dumsor and hardship.
In a tweet on Tuesday, November 1, the outspoken presidential staffer asserted that President
Akufo-Addo will do all he can to turn things around.
“Nana Akufo-Addo is NOT moving an inch! John Dramani Mahama did not resign from office
when life became unbearable for Ghanaians, so much so, that Hajia Zenabu, a practising Muslim
resorted to pig farming to save her family,
Convener for the Fix the country Movement, Oliver Barker Vormawor, and Lawyer Martin Kpebu,
who is organising “Kumi Preko reloaded” protest, are mounting pressure on President AkufoAddo to resign.
Speaking on Accra-based JoyNews’ ‘The Probe’ after the President’s speech on Sunday,
October 30, Mr. Kpebu stated, “he has overstayed his welcome, so we are begging Mr.
president, he should just resign. There’s a place for resignation. The constitution itself says so,
that he can resign. He can.
“Once as a people we tell him that respectfully we think that he should resign…article 66 makes
provision for his resignation so he resigns and let’s not forget, Lieutenant General Joseph
Ankrah, he resigned over allegations concerning about GH₵6,000 at the time.”
He continued “The constitution makes it clear so it’s not as if by all means we should run the
course of 4 years.
