About two years ago in 2019, Founder of the United Front Party (UFP), Akwasi Addai Odike described Ghana as a ‘concert’ nation owing to the fact its leadership mishandled the country’s natural resources.

He raised such concerns in a studio discussion on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM monitored by MynewsGH.

Odike at that time accused parliament of being unable to make strict legislations to protect the country against foreign companies that extract most of its natural resources.

“Resources that belong to all Ghanaians have no proper regulations governing them,” Odike said adding that political parties have become negotiators for the country keeping all the money to themselves. Few people are now enjoying while the masses suffer. Don’t you think God will whip us? We deserve to be beaten by God” he indicated.

Bankroller and founder of the United Front Party (UFP), Akwasi Addai Odike has described Ghana as a ‘concert’ nation due to the fact its

leadership has mishandled the country’s natural resources.

According to him, the Parliament of Ghana appears impotent in making strict legislation to protect the country against foreign companies that extract

most of its natural resources.

During a studio discussion on Kumasi based Nhyira FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Odike chided lawmakers of the country saying Ghana is

a concert nation”.

“Ghana has many oil blocks. Why should parliament sit down for government formed by political parties to make its own negotiations? By now,

parliament should have passed legislation that any investor who is not ready to offer 40% of the revenue to Ghana won’t be allowed”. He suggested.

He continued that because of selfishness and greed by members of the two parties (NDC, NPP) they have ignored good negotiations and allowed the

country to suffer.

“Resources that belong to all Ghanaians have no proper regulations governing them,” Odike said adding that political parties have become negotiators

for the country keeping all the money to themselves.

“Few people are now enjoying while the masses suffer. Don’t you think God will whip us? We deserve to be beaten by God”. He suggested.

The businessman is at a loss as to why since 1897 when the Obuasi Gold Mines has established a road to the city is still in its poorest state.

It is an open secret that in Ghana most cities and villages where natural resources are extracted are left in abject poverty and what is worse is the case residents of these communities neither have potable water nor the tarred road to transport their goods to the market centers.
