General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said President Akufo-Addo is exhibiting signs of fatigue and should proceed on leave before he suffers mental exhaustion.
According to Mr. Asiedu Nketia, just as the president instructed some public officials to proceed on leave, he needs to show leadership by example by taking his leave after working over three years without same.
Speaking in an interview with Okay FM, Mr. Asiedu Nketia expressed shock the president cliams he has not heard anywhere in Ghana some Ghanaians being prevented from taking part in the ongoing voter registration exercise at Banda in Bono region and other parts of the country.
A development he said is a clear indication the president is tired and needs a break.
“The president is working for the state and the laws of the state concerning leave covers all persons in public office. If he says it is wrong for anybody to accumulate leave, he too cannot accumulate 3 years leave. He should also proceed on leave just as the laws stipulates. He is a leader. He should show leadership by example because he is tired,” he said.
He continued that the presidents state of tiredness “Is why he claims he has not heard anywhere in Ghana people being prevented from registering in the ongoing voter registration exercise. These are signs of a fatigued person. He will suffer a mental exhaustion if he doesn’t proceed on leave.”
