Ghanaian actress and entrepreneur, Lydia Forson, has taken to her social media pages to voice the frustration and discontent felt by many in the country.
In a heartfelt message, she addressed the lack of accountability in the government of President Akufo-Addo, shedding light on the prevailing hardships faced by ordinary citizens.
In her passionate post, Lydia Forson lamented how the actions, or lack thereof, of the country’s leaders have left citizens feeling unheard and dismissed.
She questioned how one can truly feel like a part of a nation when their voices are constantly suppressed and their basic needs remain unmet.
The actress raised poignant questions about the government’s commitment to the well-being of its people. She challenged the leadership to convince the citizens that they have their best interests at heart by actively listening to their concerns and taking tangible actions to address them.
Lydia Forson emphasized that the people are not asking for much but the basics required for survival – access to clean water, reliable electricity, well-maintained roads, and proper healthcare. She posed the question: “Is that too much to ask for?”
Her message went beyond the tangible issues such as poor infrastructure, inadequate healthcare, and power cuts. She highlighted the deep-rooted frustration stemming from a lack of accountability in the face of numerous scandals that have gone ignored, covered up, or dismissed with the culprits escaping unpunished.
Furthermore, Lydia Forson pointed out the disturbing trend of stifling dissent. She emphasized that citizens have the constitutional right to complain, protest, and demand accountability, but too often, these rights are met with attacks and blocked protests.
