The majority of Ghanaians, in my opinion, don't care whether President Nana Akufo Addo flies in a presidential jet or a luxurious foreign jet to get where he needs to go anymore since Ghana's terrible leadership has already had an impact there and the cost of the damage has already been felt. The most important question is: What does Ghana gain from all these expensive international visits the president takes?

Akufo Addo has probably traveled more than any of the past presidents. I'm not sure if it's a means of escaping the internal issues that are keeping him up at night, but the fact is that no matter where he travels and how long he stays there, he will always return home to find the same issues waiting for him exactly as he left.

Given the dire financial situation in Ghana, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament for North Tongu, has been relentless in informing the public about Nana Akufo Addo's expensive foreign trips at the expense of taxpayers. This has angered some NPP politicians who believe Ablakwa is undermining the NPP party or the president.


The president of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, should review his international travels and take only the most necessary ones to save Ghana enough foreign exchange to aid the struggling economy.

A senseless NPP politician will speak out against anyone asking the president to explain how the COVID funds were used, even though it was the common people who voted for the politicians to be elected in a nation where the government never accounts for or accepts responsibility for anything that goes wrong.

Considering the nation's heavy debt, what Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is doing should be supported in any good country with informed citizens, since the president's focus on these issues, can help schoolchildren get enough to eat, help government employees receive their paychecks, and help many hospitals and schools that lack adequate infrastructure.

Instead, Ablakwa and other politicians opposed to the president's careless spending, which is badly harming the nation, have been under continual fire. Due to Ghana's terrible drainage system, everything floods after every rainstorm, and people struggle to lead regular lives due to the high unemployment rate. However, anyone who criticizes the Cathedral project is vilified.

Where has Ghana's intelligent population lost its capacity for thought? Why, in the name of God, do individuals keep adding to the problems of a nation whose currency is worthless and whose economy has collapsed? Are we preventing our own progress? Is it accurate to say that the only way to keep any intelligence from a black man is to put it in a book? I'm completely perplexed.

Because of racism and white supremacy, white people who believe they are superior to black people continue to incite such hatred for the black man, who is perceived as hopeless and unproductive. I do not believe the black man is stupid, and I will never accept that. I regret to inform you, however, that the African Black race is not making any notable efforts to combat this silly, demeaning pride. We truly back up what they say with what we do.

A president is able to go anywhere in the world to take part in forums, conferences, and other global endeavors. Due to the president's entourage whenever he travels abroad, every state must pay thousands of dollars. So it makes sense for a president who cares about the suffering of the people to think about which of his travel plans will assist his nation and which will not in order to save money.

Unfortunately, the president hasn't shown much concern over state-expensive foreign travel difficulties. Since taking office, Akufo Addo has traveled widely on state money, which is having a significant negative impact on Ghana's already-collapsed economy. However, no one is curious to know whether the president's international travels are beneficial or detrimental to our beloved country.

Akufo Addo, Nana I don't hate you, God knows that in my heart. Because I want Ghana to be a good nation, I criticize you. For the sake of our dear nation's faltering economy, I will be very delighted if you start considering your international travels to see those that are worthwhile in order to save enough money for the country, even though I am aware that not everyone will approve or agree to my thoughts as a writer.
