Shatta Wale marks government 15% over performance so far

Dancehall act, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr. has waded into the Performance debate of President Akufo-Addo. In a viral audio, Shatta Wale is heard saying the president’s three years’ performance in government deserves 15% marks. His assessment of the president comes days after Akufo-Addo had told the Ghanaian press that contrary to some 48% score awarded his government by Imani Africa, a policy think tank,  his government deserves 72% pass mark for its performance.

But Shatta Wale disagrees.  The iconic reggae-dancehall musician and producer insists the president deserves fewer marks. “Let me just give him 15% because people are complaining, you know, and me myself every morning the kind of people I have in front of my gate, as I’m even not there now I’m imagining the people there. If I go, it’s like a doctor visiting his patients, you know, school fees, sickness, grandmother, grandfather.”

The president’s campaign promises of giving every district in Ghana a factory, every village a dam and every constituency US$1 million won him the heart of many Ghanaians. He obtained a staggering 5,716,609 of total votes cast in the 2016 elections, representing 53.84%, to snatch the Presidency from John Mahama, who secured 4,713,277 votes (44.40%). Three years on Shatta Wale believes the president must be realistic with himself about his performance.

“Who gave them 72 per cent? “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.
