The Coalition of Youth Organisers has waded into the “unfortunate” incident last weekend when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was booed by patrons at the Global Citizen Festival staged at the Black Star Square in Accra.
The embarrassing incident was widely reported by the media, leaving political parties divided on the action by the predominantly youthful crowd against the Akufo-Addo-led government on the current economic crisis.
A statement issued by the Coalition of National Youth Organisers on Thursday, September 29 said the booing by the youth was as a result of governance adamancy and economic mismanagement.
It said a plethora of issues including corruption, nepotism, youth unemployment and extravagance in government expenditure also precipitated the reaction at the concert.
“Since the youth suffer the most from these decisions, they will boo the most at the President,” the statement said.
“It is rather unfortunate to witness such disgrace of the President on an international platform.
“But the adamancy of the President to the issues that concern the average Ghanaian warrants such a reaction from the youth of Ghana.
“Serious issues like reshuffling ineffective ministries to bring some sort of discipline to the system were taken lightly by the President.
“Perhaps his advisers are doing him a disservice. Nevertheless, the youth will continue to channel their revulsion towards the President every least chance they get if he continues on this same trajectory for the years left of his tenure. And it must be prudently asserted that this will not look good in the right–years CV of the NPP in the lead up to the 224 General election.”
