‘I’m getting disappointed in you Otumfuo, Okyenhene’ – Captain Smart bares it all

Host of ‘Maakye’ on Onua TV/FM, Blessed Godsbrain Smart, has expressed his disappointment in the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and the Okyenhene, Osaagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin. 

His disappointment with the Asantehene, the Okyenhene, traditional leaders and some clergy in the country he says is as a result of their silence on the current state of affairs in the nation.

Captain Smart, as he is known in the media space averred the honour and respect the Asantehene commands is enough to talk to the president to heed to the plight of the ordinary citizenry pertaining the hardship in country.

He was ranting over the passage of the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the government, after it had been rejected under the leadership of the Speaker Alban Bagbin few days ago.

After according him all appellations, he humbly went on his knees and said “My King, I’m gradually getting disappointed. Your silence is killing us. Is it that when you talk Nana Addo wouldn’t listen or what? I know that when you speak he will listen. Ghanaians are suffering. People are crying, some are dying. Okyenhene, it shouldn’t be only about GNPC giving you money to celebrate your festival. You need to talk.”

“Ga Mantse, why are you quiet? Togbe Afede, J.A. Kufuor, I know they don’t regard you but people ask if this is Kufuor’s NPP. Dag Heward Mills, Duncan Williams, Pentecost Chairman (Aps. Eric Nyamekye), Opoku Onyinah, you all need to talk because if you don’t, there is a doomsday coming,” he ranted.

Parliament yesterday, Tuesday, November 30, 2021, presided over by the 1st Deputy Speaker, Joe Osei Owusu, approved the 2022 Budget without the Minority despite it being rejected on the November 26 under Speaker Bagbin.

After presentation of the budget by the Finance Minister, many Ghanaians raised some reservations saying the statement would compound the hardship people are facing, which influenced the Minority to reject it after the Majority walked out.

It was expected that many of the issues raised about the budget be addressed before it is passed. But the Majority went ahead to approve the rejected budget in the Speaker and Minority’s absence, making many Ghanaians disappointed.
