Member of Parliament for Tema East, Titus Glover has charged President John Mahama to stop complaining to Ghanaians and work efficiently to improve the wellbeing of the citizenry.

According to him, the president’s recent needless complaints about certain developments in the country is doing him no good and must rather focus on delivering on a better Ghana he promised Ghanaians.

President John Mahama over the weekend at an inauguration of a church building of the Assemblies of God church in Roman Ridge, Accra, stated that Ghanaians have a short memory and have soon forgotten about the difficulties in the form of power crisis, market fires and weak economy due to the election petition, all of which his government faced in the beginning of 2013 and the strides he’s made to surmount these challenges.

He also urged Ghanaians not to be cynics but believe in his government to deliver while the citizenry also contribute their quota to developing the country.

This comes after he recently urged Ghanaians to follow his footsteps and sacrifice 2% of their salaries just as he and his appointees have decided to slash theirs by 10% to be used in building more health centres across the country, a call which the President received flak for.

Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show on Monday, Hon. Titus Glover accused President John Mahama of running the Presidency like a Public Relation(PR) outfit instead of getting down to work.
“ You have you Ministry of Information with three(3) ministers, other ministers of state who are discharging businesses on your behalf, Mr President yours is to work and stop the complaints, the reaction to some of these things is too much” he said.

Hon. Titus Glover took strong exception to the president’s use of the word cynics, saying “what does the President mean by saying we should not be cynics, when we see the ills in the government, corruption here and there and you say we should not talk, is he saying because of our faith we should swallow it like that, Ghanaians who see all the negatives going on in government are being overburdened and they have every right to talk”.

He said President Mahama should work to ensure a good legacy in post his tenure of office just like late former South African President, Nelson Mandela, adding that he can only achieve this by hard work.
