This morning, President Akufo-Addo is not the favourite of a lot of Ghanaians.
Yesterday, the President attended a sod-cutting ceremony where they kicked off the construction of a building that would cost GHS 5M.
The two-storey office block will be the Head of Office of the Head of State Award Scheme (HoSAS).
The building will be known as the Ghana Award House.
When completed, the Ghana Award House will include a 200-people capacity conference room facility and a training facility.
According to the President, the Ghana Award House will “put Ghana ahead of many of the countries running the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.”
However, a significant number of Ghanaians do not see why money must be spent to construct a building for such a purpose.
However, for some Ghanaians who have benefited from the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award scheme, the construction of the Ghana Award House is a welcomed development.
With the sod cut, it is unlikely that the agitations of some Ghanaians can stop the construction of the Ghana Award House.
It, however, highlights the growing disconnect between the governors and the governed.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award was set up in 1956 by Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, to recognise adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises.
