Your Naked abuse of power a danger to democracy- NDC to Akufo Addo

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fifi Kwetey, has criticized President Akufo-Addo, asserting that his blatant abuse of power and overzealous desire to control all arms of government pose a grave danger to Ghana’s democracy.

Addressing the press on Thursday, July 4, 2024, the General Secretary of the opposition NDC cautioned President Akufo-Addo to exercise prudence and refrain from actions that could have unmanageable repercussions.

He urged the President to learn from recent events in Kenya and avoid abusing his position of authority to prevent a wave of uncontrollably violent protests and disturbances.

These comments by the NDC General Secretary follow the recommendation by Chief Justice Gertrude Torkornoo for President Akufo-Addo to nominate five new judges to the Supreme Court.

Fiifi Kwetey emphasized that the President’s overzealous desire to control all arms of government poses a “grave danger to our democracy.”

He warned that the nation’s democratic framework is in “grave danger” due to the President’s aggressive attempts to seize control over all branches of government, undermining the principles of checks and balances and the separation of powers, which are crucial for maintaining accountability and sound governance.

“Again, the naked abuse of power by President Akufo-Addo and his overzealous desire to control all arms of government poses a grave danger to our democracy and governance arrangements. President Akufo-Addo must note that the ongoing happenings in Kenya serve as a reminder that there is a tolerable limit for the abuse and excesses of the Executive,” The General Secretary of the NDC Fiifi Kwetey expounded.
