Tadi Kidnapping Case: Many leaders know nothing about leadership – Lydia Forson
Actress Lydia Forson has said too many people in leadership positions in the country “know nothing about what being a leader means.”
According to Ms Forson, most Ghanaian leaders do not understand the integrity, respect and honour that comes with stepping down when they have failed.
Her statement comes on the back of renewed calls on the CID boss, Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to resign following a DNA confirmation that the missing Takoradi girls who she claimed the police knew their whereabouts are dead.
The Inspector-General of Police James Oppong Boanuh confirmed to the media on Monday, 16 September 2019 that the DNA results conducted on some human remains discovered at the home of the suspect had come in positive as those of the four missing girls.
Reacting to news of the death of the girls, Ms Forson in a series of tweets said: “What happened to the #TakoradiGirls, how the police handled the case, the silence of our government and the treatment of the families should tell you the value of your life in this country.”
According to the award-winning actress “The Director-General of the CID’s refusal to step down after lying to the media and putting the families through emotional turmoil says a lot about leadership in this country. Most leaders in Ghana will hold on to power even if it means knocking everyone down. #TakoradiGirls”
“Your government does not care about you,” she added.
