Akufo-Addo must go, he’s too old – Blakk Rasta
Ghanaian Reggae musician and radio presenter, Blakk Rasta, has called on the youth to kick out President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and all officials in the NPP government who are above 60-years.
According to the controversial radio presenter, there is no way a 75-year-old man, who is 15years pass the retirement age, can run the affairs of a country with a population of over 30million people properly.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the ‘Taakama’ is seen angrily calling for the removal of all aged people who are beyond the retirement age of 60-especially President Nana Addo and Yaw Osafo-Maafo- from power.
Blakk Rasta said his appeal to the youth was informed by the fact that the President Nana Addo was caught on camera sleeping at the just ended Russian-Africa Summit 2020.
“You have a 75-year-old man -15 years past his retirement age- and he is actively engaged in the running of the affairs of a whole country of over 30million people. Such an old man goes to a function, he flies on a chartered flight all the way to Russia, he couldn’t sleep in his business class on his way to Russia. Now taxpayers are paying for this. You arrive in Russia and you get caught dozing while they are reading policies and all that. You will wake up and sign contracts that you did not hear anything about because you were fast asleep. And you want me to smile and clap and say that I have the most handsome president in the country?,” the ‘Taakama’ singer quizzed on Metro TV.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is currently 75-years-old and as the adage goes ‘age is just a number’.
But Blakk Rasta will not have none of that. He disclosed “for me, age is everything. It doesn’t mean that a young man can do better than an old man, what I am saying is by a norm, let us agree. If it was a young man who had gone to Russia and was dozing, what will the people have said? They would have said there is something wrong with the young man. But old man is sleeping and people are saying it is normal.”
“He is old, he got to rest. How many times has Nana Addo been caught sleeping at important functions?,” he quizzed.
