“People are suffering; the people are crying, pregnant woman, children, babies, the aged, the sick, these people are homeless, they are crying for help and you want a to accept that we have resource constraint, we don’t have resource challenges in this country, What we have is that leadership does not know what to prioritize,” he said in a discussion monitored by GhanaPlus.com.
“We have resource constraints but your President is flying jet paying over €15,000 an hour that is enough to provide relief items for the people of Agavedzi,” Mr Agbana added.
