He made the statement when he appeared on the ‘Hang Out’ segment on the Cruise Control on Hitz FM with Kwame Bee.
The actor said some section of Ghanaians misconstrued his statement about Yvonne Nelson’s tweet. Commenting on the actress’ tweet, Prince David Osei tweeted that, “Ghanaians should be a bit patient with the president, hopefully next year will be better.”
He further disclosed that as a Ghanaian, he lives in the country and pays tariffs too so he also feels the hardship but he meant that Ghanaians should have some patience for the president.
Prince David Osei used the platform to apologise to Ghanaians for his comments saying, “if I pricked any sentiment or wronged any one I am sorry and they should please forgive me.”
Below is the tweet from Yvonne Nelson and comment from Prince David Osei.
Yvonne Nelson tweeted that: “Mr President. Ghanaians are suffering. The people of Ghana are SUFFERING. #fuel #electricity #water plsdosomething! Thank you”.
Commenting on the actress’ tweet, actor Prince David Osei said, “It’s good she tweeted that, which other ways, its bringing some kind of awareness and letting the president know that, people like us also care about how the country goes.”
He, however, conceded that the whole world is going through that bad economic face.
“… I think it’s a global thing because the American government is even going down, so generally it’s not about [President] Mahama but he just got into office and as he rightly said the other time on TV, when you start a car, you move to the first gear, you move to the second, it then accelerate further. So I think Mahama is in the right direction.”
“Rome was not built in a day. I believe we all need to sacrifice and endure for some time and hopefully next year will be very great. It’s not wrong that, she’s shown concern that Ghanaians are suffering. Literally we are suffering with the frustration of fuel prices, electricity tariffs being increased by almost 80%, it’s not been easy for the layman but all the same, it’s a global thing.” He concluded.
