Lydia Forson has responded to the president’s comments about him not being ready to use taxpayers’ monies to fix the drains if Ghanaians continue to litter.
The social activist shared her displeasure with President Nana Akufo-Addo’s comments on Twitter.
According to her, the president’s utterances are unfortunate and insensitive to the plight of Ghanaians during the rainy season.
“It’s only privileged people who don’t have to shit in KVIP that think if there’s a water closet people won’t use. Fix the system, and you can punish people for dumping refuse in gutters. But don’t talk to us like we’re some animals with no sense.”
Lydia Forson also pointed out that attitudinal change should start from the leaders before trickling down to the masses.
“As usual, blaming citizens for not doing your jobs!! For years in my area there we had to would pile rubbish for several weeks and hope those little trucks will show up. You can only BOLDLY punish people when you’ve provided them with places to dump rubbish.”
Dear @NAkufoAddo , this attitude you speak of starts from the TOP 🔝
If we want the people’s attitude to change, we need to see it from the top and it will trickle down.
You cannot chastise/punish people at the bottom for doing the very things those at the top get away with.
