Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr Clement Apaak has ‘hit hard’ at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over a video in which the latter is captured, ‘dancing’ with some women in an unidentified setting with ‘hot’ tunes playing in the background.
Mr. Akufo-Addo rhythmically danced along with MzVee’s ‘Come and see my mother’, while the light glimmered in the background.
In a post with the 30-seconds video attached, Mr. Apaak quizzed how the president could find time to ‘party in a club when things are turbulent in the country and Ghanaians are suffering.
“Our President finds time to party in a club in these difficult times! Is this what he is borrowing for? See how NADAA dey bogie as Ghanaians dey suffer!”, the post on his wall read.
This comes on the back of recent comments made by President Akufo-Addo on borrowing. According to him, his government will continue to borrow money to put up projects he described as “assets”, stressing that every country borrows.
Speaking at an entrepreneurship forum organised by the Tony Elumelo Foundation in Nigeria, Thursday, the President mentioned that many developed countries borrow, including the United States borrow.
“We will borrow money; everybody borrows money,” he noted. “The United States of America is one of the biggest debtors in the world. So borrowing money is not necessarily a betrayal of the concept of independence. The key for us in borrowing money is that we borrow money to create assets that will allow us to pay the money back. That is the key…If we borrow the money and use it properly it is an asset for us in expanding our economy and infrastructure.”
The President was responding to a question from one of the participants who asked why he goes for loans from China despite his Ghana Beyond Aid mantra.
“Borrowing money is not aid,” said Nana Addo as he defended the move by the Chinese government to earmark $60 billion fund for infrastructure projects in Africa.
