Former Deputy Information Minister under the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Felix Kwakye Ofosu has urged President Akufo-Addo to focus on solving  the problems of Ghanaians and cut the emotional hysteria and temper tantrums over the national anthem.

He said Ghanaians who are living in hardship due to bad economic management by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should be rather angry with the  President.

According to him, Ghanaians entrusted their lives and future in the hands of the ruling government when they decided to vote for the NPP in the 2020 elections and therefore it falls on the government to sit up and do better with its decisions.

Felix Kwakye Ofosu comments comes after President Akufo-Addo angrily ordering the chief to stand up for the national anthem during the commemorative tree planting exercise on Green Ghana Day.

“The President should focus on more substantive matters and cut out the emotional hysteria and temper tantrums over the national anthem”. He tweeted.

“About the only people who should be showing any anger are Ghanaians, whose economy and livelihoods he has destroyed”. He added.

A viral video of President Nana Addo instructing the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey to put someone to order during the commemorative tree planting exercise on Green Ghana Day has sparked conversations among Ghanaians on the internet.

According to reports, during the event, as the national anthem was being sung, the president spotted a chief seated. The president who was provoked by the actions of the chief directed Henry Quartey to quickly call the chief to order and make him stand for the anthem.

The said incident occurred at the University of Ghana, where dignitaries gathered to grace the Green Ghana Day initiative on June 9.

The president’s reaction to the incident was met with mixed feelings. While others praised the president for calling the chief to others for behaving unpatriotic, there were some who questioned the president’s moral right to chastise a chief for acting unpatriotic.
