Ghanaian social commentator and actress, Andrea Owusu, known in the media circles as Efia Odo, has described the tenure of President Akufo-Addo as the worst-performing president the country has ever witnessed.

Efia Odo was commenting on media reports on the IMF approval of the $600 million second tranche of the $3 billion extended credit facility programme.

In a quoted post on X (formerly Twitter), the outspoken socialite wrote, “With all due respect, this man [President Akufo-Addo] is the worst president in the history of GHANA!!!”



This would not be the first time the actress has taken on the Akufo-Addo government over what she believes are the ills in the running of the affairs of the country. She lashed out at the Akufo-Addo government due to its U-turn to the IMF for balance of payment support after it promised not to go to the Bretton Wood Institution for the 17th time.

Efia Odo has also been an active and recognised personality with the online social movement, Fix The Country. She also took part in the popular Occupy Jubilee House demonstration where protesters, amongst other things, demanded the resignation of President Akufo-Addo from office over his abysmal performance.

Owing to the consistent pressure from the Fix The Country movement in the Fix the Motorway demonstration, the government commenced the expansion works on the motorway. She also uses her social media platform to champion activism and advocacy for social amenities.

Efia Odo also joins the list of media personalities who do not shy away from voicing their dissatisfaction with the political class. It would be recalled that actress and entrepreneur Yvonne Nelson launched the #DumsorMustStop vigil against the Mahama administration in 2015 at the peak of the erratic power supply in the country, famously called “Dumsor.”

Defending the decision to embark on a protest, Yvonne said, “We don’t want to sound as cowards. We started on social media, and we are actually going out on the streets to do it… we don’t want it to be just a social media thing, that’s why we are going out on the streets as well.”
