Shatta Wale (Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr.) says there is no way the government could have scored 72 percent in its delivery when there is suffering among the masses.
Only 15 percent is what he credits the government within evaluating government’s performance particularly, in helping to grow the Arts industry, more so when he wakes up each morning with crowds at his doorstep seeking money for school fees, hospital bills and other needs.
Shatta who was responding to a listener’s question posed by his host on Empire FM’s Empire Drive, Joe Kumi in Takoradi after partaking in a Made in Takoradi Music Show, said President Akufo-Addo should listen to the wave of complaints if he must know the truth.
He suggested that he would have been stingy with awarding marks if he were a headmaster.
“You see, me I don’t lie, this thing that I’m saying I just want the President to even know himself that people are complaining” that life has become unbearable in Ghana. He said he is not one to score the government 72 percent when things are not in their best, asking “Who gave them 72 percent?”
Shatta insisted that his 15 percent is more acceptable.
President Akufo-Addo had told the nation during his encounter with representatives of the media at the Jubilee House about a fortnight ago that per government’s own evaluation, 72 percent of its electoral promises have been fulfilled, countering an IMANI Ghana’s assessment that pegged government’s delivery on promises at 48 percent.
