According to Citizen Kofi CEO Dr. Kofi Amoah, any Ghanaian who supports the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the next twenty years is a traitor.
He said that those who betray the nation ought to be stoned.
He continued by saying that this is a result of the nation’s mounting external debt during the previous seven years under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He revealed this in a post that the CEO published on X, featuring a video of Cape Coast South MP George Kwaku Ricketts-Hagan speaking to lawmakers following the Minister of Finance Ken Ofori-Atta’s budget presentation.
The MP listed some of the debts incurred by the current administration in that video.
In response, Citizen Kofi stated his dissatisfaction and called for violence against anyone who would now support the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) policies.
“The LEGACY OF NADAA/BAWUMIA NPP. Any Ghanaian who votes for the NPP in the next 20 years is a traitor and must be stoned, period! We are not fools to be deceived, insulted and stolen blind and still remain fools,” the post read.
What Ricketts-Hagan said in parliament
“Mr Speaker, this is basically a garbage budget. It does not inspire anyone, there is nothing in here. Mr. Speaker, let me tell you the external debt we are not paying. We owe the Chinese $1.9 billion, we owe the Paris Club $2 billion, we owe non-Paris Club $ 3.8 billion, all of these we are not paying.
“Mr Speaker, we owe Templeton $2.5 billion. With multilateral debt, we owe $2.8 billion. Ghana is now the highest in Africa when it comes to multilateral debt and we are not paying. We owe Eurobond $14.9 billion which we are not paying, this was due in August, we have paid it.
“We have done 17 Eurobond tranches in this country since we started doing Eurobond since President Kufuor’s time. From Presidents Kufuor, Mills to Mahama, for 16 years, we did $4 billion Eurobond. Under this government, we have done 12 tranches of Eurobond more than we did in 16 years; we did 4 times to a tune of $11 billion. This is how much we own and we are not paying,” he said.
