The gatekeeper

Private Legal Practitioner, Martin Kpebu has described President Akufo-Addo’s address on the economy as full of mere slogans without any intended action. Mr. Kpebu said the President is only repeating ‘slogans’ he said in the past.

He believes that President Akuffo’s assurance to turn the fortunes of the economy while he was campaigning for votes in 2016 has not materialized.

“It does not cut muster. This is not sufficient. What he has said is basically looking at candidate Akufo-Addo in 2016…sloganeering that is what it is.

“You heard the President famously say that he wanted to change the Guggisberg economy in 18 months. This is 6 years down the line and he comes to say the same thing…he diagnosed the problem but he did not have what it takes to change the economy,” Martin Kpebu said on The Probe on Sunday, October 30 monitored by He noted that for this reason, President Akufo-Addo must “in respect of honour, step down.”
