Okatakyie Afrifa Mensah usually criticizes the government for its inability to address the crisis confronting the country but has rather proposed alternatives this morning on TV XYZ. On the program “Abranaa So,” the gentleman made a point with pleasure that he believes will salvage the economy.
Commenting on the President’s national address, he express his disappointment with the speech and labeled it as irresponsible. The president’s posture and the message broadcasted were described as insensitive to the plight of the masses.
The notable phrase in the local parlance “Sika Mpe Dede” was deemed unnecessary by the tv host who called for the president’s speech writers to be sacked. To him, if the masses are complaining about hardships, it should tell the head of state of the hardships they are going through.
He finally proposed that in the first place, the president should have given the populace a sense of hope and direction and avoided shifting blame. Then again, the masses should have been assured of the government’s measures to ensure the country are back on track.
“A liter of diesel is 23 cedis and cement Is 92 cedis, then you say sika MPE dede,” he concluded.
