Highly opinionated Ghanaian radio personality, Blakk Rasta has descended heavily on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for its attempts to curb rent problems in the country.
On records, the NPP has promised to pay the rent advance of the youth to landlords and ladies in its next term of office as an initiative to tackle the high cost of rent in the country.
While speaking at the NPP’s weekly press conference at the Alisa Hotel, the former Communication Director of the party, Nana Akomea said:
“Housing is a major problem facing the youth in Ghana and one can’t even find affordable accommodation. The rent advance will be paid to landlords directly with the beneficiary making a monthly payment to the scheme. You don’t need to think of rent advance again”.
However, Blakk Rasta has labelled the action as a cheap attempt at propaganda cum scam which can never be materialized.
He took on the issue while speaking on Zylofon 102.1FM on the Taxi Driver Show, specifically labelling the promises as ‘recycled trash’.
“Cheap propaganda to win votes, listen to what these people are saying, after promising us 1-district, 1-factory the same Nana Akomea who is my good brethren is saying that with the 1-district, 1-factory they will create more jobs. You are just recycling your trash and throwing it unto the people,” the popular radio show host said.
“I speak as a Ghanaian and continental African, I have no respect for party colours because all these people are liars, they don’t speak the truth and it’s painful.” He frantically added.
He noted that the government’s solution brings more problems as it has still not addressed the main issue of the high cost of rent in the country.
You’re saying that during your second term you are going to be able to pay rent for the youth, from what age to what age? Are you going to tell the landlord don’t charge long rent advance, don’t charge high is that what you’re going to tell the landlord? What’s the population of the youth, for how long are you going to tackle this?”
“You have affordable housing rotten up, now they have become home for reptiles, lizards and wild animals. You are not dealing with this but you are going to deal with landlords who have their own homes and pay them.
“Until we develop our youth as critical thinkers, dirty politics will continue to invade our country,” he angrily concluded.
