Angry Tweeps Criticize Akufo-Addo’s Plans to Rename Legon After His Uncle, J.B Danquah.

Ghanaian social media users have expressed their outrage towards President Akufo-Addo after he announced his plans to rename the University of Ghana, Legon, after his late uncle, J.B Danquah. The President’s remarks, captured in a viral video, have caused a stir online, with many criticizing him for what they perceive as nepotism and a disregard for the needs of the country.

During a public event, President Akufo-Addo highlighted the possibility of renaming the prestigious university in order to honor the accomplishments and legacy of J.B Danquah, who played a significant role in the founding of Ghana and was also the President’s grand uncle. However, this announcement has not been well-received by the Ghanaian public.

Social media platforms have been flooded with comments from Ghanaians who feel that the President’s decision reflects a prioritization of personal interests over the welfare of the nation. Many argue that there are more pressing issues that require attention, such as improving the quality of education or addressing economic challenges.

Critics argue that the President’s focus should be on effectively governing the country rather than using his position to enrich his family. They believe that this move reinforces a perception of political elites being detached from the everyday struggles of ordinary Ghanaians.

As the online backlash continues, it remains to be seen how President Akufo-Addo will respond to the widespread criticism. The renaming of the University of Ghana, Legon, after J.B Danquah is now a contentious topic that has further highlighted divisions within Ghanaian society.
