Kofi Bentil, IMANI Africa Vice President, has expressed frustration at the failure of successive governments to establish themselves as competent enough to run the affairs of the country, ABC News can report.
The legal practitioner didn’t mince words in bashing leaders across the political divide, who have, at one point or another, assumed the leadership of the country, for their inability to keep the street lights on.
A seemingly frustrated Kofi Bentil said the inability of governments to keep, particularly, the lights along the about 19kilometer Accra-Tema motorway on, shows the incompetence of the leaders.
“Hard as I try I can’t shake the wretched feeling when I see how we don’t have leaders competent enough to fix and maintain simple street lights on the motorway, it’s so sad and really sucks to have such poor leadership across parties!!” he wrote on his Facebook timeline.
His comments were buttressed by a host of other prominent individuals and leaders of Civil Society Organisations.
Center for Democratic Development’s Professor H. Kwasi Prempeh, who added his voice to the disappointment of Kofi Bentil pointed out that the problem is more widespread than he exposed.
Professor Kwasi Prempeh, referred to the Accra-Kumasi highway, the Spintex road, and the road leading to the Kotoka International Airport as evidence of the incompetence of leadership alluded to by Kofi Bentil.
In the comment section, the CDD boss stated, “It’s not just the Motorway. It’s the road to and from our Spintex to our INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. And it’s the road between our two largest cities. We are too happily primitive.”
