Critique of issues must not be based on which party is in government – Lydia Forson

43629760

Actress Lydia Forson has, as is characteristic of her, written an article to question why it appears the same people who “vehemently criticized” the erstwhile National Democratic Congress government are suddenly silent with a new government, New Patriotic Party in power.

Uncharacteristic of her, however, she made the article short.

She wondered why people, who only two years ago were willing to hold long debates on issues and march on the streets and to the airwaves are today finding comfort in silence and giving excuses when issues need their inputs.

The actress, known for her adroit writing skills and free-mindedness has in the past written similar articles and generated discussions among her thousands of followers on social media and their circles.

According to her, “those people” now pretend to disagree with government on the issues- only briefly- and then find “over-intellectualized answers coated with condescension” to those they think are not smart enough to get it.

It is unclear what specifically might have prompted the award-winning actress to write her piece.

“If we can’t criticize this government as vehemently as we did the NDC then there’s a big problem. But this is what happens to a people that are more loyal to their party than the country.” She wrote.

She signed off as member of an unregistered or perhaps yet to be founded Permanent Opposition Party (POP).

Lydia Forson was recently assaulted by a security guard for what social media users called her “okro mouth”, while her most recent media appearance was two weeks ago when she slammed bloggers for what she describes as casually parading misrepresentations about actors, and actresses especially who drive in flashy cars and embark on extravagant trips despite their outcry of a dying industry.

Lydia Forson writes:

Two years ago we were ready to go out on the streets, march, have long debates from social media to the air waves.

There was passion in these conversations, or dare I say even anger over decisions the government of the day was making we disagreed with; a lot of them nothing compared to this.

Now; we talk a little, feign disagreement for a brief moment then later try to give “over intellectualized” answers coated with condescension to those who’re not “smart enough” to get it. ( more than anything this is what annoys me).

If we can’t criticize this government as vehemently as we did the NDC then there’s a big problem. But this is what happens to a people that are more loyal to their party than the country.

This government doesn’t have all the answers, they’re not our saviors and they’re certainly NOT above criticism; it’s up to us to steer them in the direction that is in our best interest with our voices.
