Former National Security boss and staunch member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hopeson Adorye has criticised Ghanaians for calling on President Nana Addo to fix the country.
In an online interview with an American television channel, Hopeson Adorye slammed those calling for the country to be fixed through demonstration.
According to him, the #FixTheCountry movement has brought a lot of unnecessary pressure on the ruling government as it struggles to meet expectations.
“Unfortunately, Akufo-Addo wasn’t lucky, therefore people are placing undue pressure on him… Because you can’t just wake up and beg Akufo-Addo to fix the country, I’m using the term “unnecessary pressure.”
“We’re supposed to be laser-focused because even America wasn’t built overnight”, Mr Adorye is quoted to have said.
He further revealed that, the conveners of the fix the country movement need to be specific as to what it is that they want Government to fix and not scatter thier grievances all over.
“They must pick and choose what they expect the government to repair. So, if people say the government should fix the roads, that sector is under pressure to fix all of them”.
“But, if you say “repair the country,” what exactly do you mean? If fixing the country in one go was possible, why hadn’t someone been in charge for eight years before we arrived, and why hadn’t that government done so?” he questioned.
As a reminder, Hopeson Adorye stood to elected as the NPP parliamentary representative for the Kpone-Katamanso electoral area in the 2016 general elections.
