Minutes after President John Dramani Mahama finished delivering his State of the Nation address on Thursday, popular actress Yvonne Nelson took to social media to say Ghanaian leaders have failed the nation.
The controversial actress posted on twitter, “Our leaders have failed us.”
But there were doubts as to whether she was reacting to the President’s speech as she preceded her comment with a tweet saying, “I can never get used to this power problem!”
The president’s State of the Nation address has been given different descriptions, with some saying it was just a “buffet of promises.”
Amid the promises, the President admitted the country was facing a huge power crisis and outlined a number of policies that are meant to increase the generation capacity to 3,000 megawatts.
Yvonne has been vocal on the state of Ghana’s economy for years now. In November last year, she posted on twitter: “Jesus gives hope. Our leaders!!! God our leaders. So much is going on in this country!!! The average citizen suffers with so much ignorance. Citizens are afraid to speak.
“The system is upside down. No transparency! No truth! At least if the people knew the issues… Pray hardest when it is hardest to pray. Strong people stand up for themselves but stronger people stand up for others.”
