Candidate Nana Addo; during his 2016 and 2020 election campaigns, made great assurances and promises to Ghanaians; building one factory in each of the 216 districts of Ghana, to provide employment opportunities for the youths.
He also promised of building a dam in each of the villages of the dry northern regions of Ghana, “giving each of the 275 constituencies in the country $1m every year for the developmental projects of the constituencies’ choice, reducing poverty in the country by putting money in people’s pockets” and many more.
Less that two to the end of his total of 8 years in office; and with little to show Ghanaians, President Nana Addo is still making promises, giving assurances; and ‘building castle in the air’.
To “Build Castle In The Air”; as we all learnt, is simply to say; creating dreams, hopes, plans that are impossible, unrealistic, or have very little chance of succeeding.
When we describe someone as building ‘castle in the air’; all we mean is, the person is saying things he can never do. That is also to say ‘talk is cheap’.
After all the 2016 and 2020 unfulfilled campaign promises; and all the subsequent assurances, that things will soon get better for Ghanaians; and that we should never giver up, President Nana Addo Dankwa-Akuffo Addo, has given another big assurance.
In his latest speech, the President has said, that he is confident the Ghanaian economy will bounce back from its recent challenges; and that, measures put in place by the government, with the support of the IMF will ensure, that the economy is revived.
Speaking at the ‘Founders’ Day’ ceremony, President Nana Addo assured that, “This is a solemn pledge I am making to you. I remain resolutely optimistic about Ghana’s future, which I continue to believe is bright”; and that, “this was a scenario Ghana had become accustomed to, in the last three immediate years before the pandemic struck”.
The question is; was the Ghanaian economy doing well before the global Covid-19 pandemic struck?
Again when the president said he is confident, the Ghanaian economy will bounce back from its recent challenges; we asked…when will that happen; will there be a miraculous change in the Ghanaian economy, in his remaining two years to exit power?
If six years in power produces a work-done-zero result, what can the last two years offer?
Couldn’t this latest assurances from the president, be described as building another castle in the air?
