National Democratic Congress (NDC) National Organizer hopeful, Joseph Yammin, has described the current hardship in the country as a Babylon system superintended by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his cronies.
Throwing his weight behind the Arise Ghana demonstrators, on Ultimate FM during the Cup of Tea Morning Show, hosted by Julius Caesar Anadem, Mr. Yammin noted that, the two days of protest by the suffering masses is justified, to push the clueless administration of the NPP to listen to the plight of Ghanaians.
Quoting from the popular reggae song of Bob Nester Marley and the Wailers, Babylon System, the NDC leading member noted that, President and his minister have refused to listen to all manner of wise counsel hence our current predicament.
‘‘Caesar do you think Nana Addo cares? Nana Addo governance is a Babylon system, he has refused to listen to everybody giving him good advice. He has left Ghanaians to their faith, he cares less about what’s happening. If he does do you think he will be doing what he is doing?’’
Are you confident with the President’s posture and actions, is that a man who cares for his people, the signs are on the walls for people to see, these are the reasons I keep on saying, let’s erase his tenure as President from Ghana’s history’’.
‘‘Nana Addo’s system is a vampire system just as Bob Marley said in his song. He is sucking the energy of the people, can’t you see people suffering, do you think the president is not happy, this can’t be right, it’s a vampire system happening now in Ghana.’’
The one-time Deputy Sports Minister is urging the suffering masses to listen to the Babylon System song and relate to the situation in Ghana now, noting that the people need freedom.
Ghanaians have been frustrated by the current economic hardship, forcing a section of them to hold a series of protests to draw the government’s attention to mitigating measures.
Meanwhile, the two-day demonstration by pressure group Arise Ghana is set to continue today Wednesday, June 29, 2022.
The group will be converging at El-wak in Accra between 12 pm and 3 pm before embarking on their march which they say will drag into the night.
The court has however directed them to begin the march by 8 am and end at 4 pm but the group says they have filed for a stay of execution which cancels out the directive of the court.
