“My brother nothing is working in this country, things are falling apart seriously, Ghana is in an unending hardship, and this is because of Bad leadership”, he lamented.
The 2016 presidential candidate of United Progressive Party (UPP) therefore, suggested “we should strip off some of the powers of the President to end the impunity that goes on in the country currently”.
