Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has bemoaned the current economic crisis on Twitter. She called Prez Nana Addo a disappointment in his capacity as the president.
The actress who headed the Dumsor demonstration against the past government has had a turnabout saying the NPP has failed the country.
She tweeted, “The country is bleeding. It’s that bad! We cannot live this way! Are you able to sleep at night? People close to you aren’t telling you? You have failed every citizen!”
According to Yvonne Nelson, the president is heartless towards the Ghanaian’s plight. She detailed how her medication, which was sold for Ghc120, has shot up to Ghc273 and even Ghc300 at some retail stores.
Mr President, @NAkufoAddo , this eye drop ( xalacom) was 120ghc , its now 273ghc and even 300ghc in some pharmacies. I need to use this every evening, without it, the pressures on my eye will go up and will result in glaucoma. How many Ghanaians do you… pic.twitter.com/RiVHTfokB2

Without it, the pressure on my eye will go up and result in glaucoma,” she continued. “How many Ghanaians do you think can afford this? Are you still president? Are you still in this country? Do you hear people crying? Are you this heartless? No more campaigns ahead, so you are unbothered? You obviously feel nothing for Ghanaians. Such a disappointment.”
Other celebrities, including Prince David Osei and Sarkodie, who were once known to be sympathetic towards the government, have turned into fierce critics.
