Best Actor in a supporting role at 2014 Ghana Movie Awards and the son of former President John Agyekum Kufuor, Edward Kuffour has admonished Ghanaians to be patient with President Mahama over the country’s current power crisis popularly known as “Dumsor Dumsor”.
According to the actor, Ghanaians must “give him a chance to work it out”. This is what he told Starr FM in an interview.
“It’s unfortunate but I’m looking at it from a different perspective, my dad has been there during his time, so sometimes, yes, you expect that when voted into power; people should expect accountability, so yes, they are like the government, the government, the government, but I also feel you know, we should give him a chance to work it out” the actor stated.
“When the problem comes, yes, they expect you to work it out, but give him a chance. I’ve seen my dad, that’s why I’m also compassionate. I’ve seen my dad 2 and 3am with his chin in his palm. So I can imagine what President Mahama is going through.
“We want to have it resolved but you know, Ghanaians, we are a little intolerant when it comes to things like this…we are like; do magic, if you can’t do magic, ‘Moko aya ni Moko aba’ (exit the seat for someone else)… but I’m hopeful that this can be resolved because it affects every sphere of our lives,” he said.
