Multiple award-winning journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah, has called the bluff of the Akufo-Addo government for politicizing every project in the country.
According to the editor at GhOne TV, the President should bring to the table what his administration is doing to reduce the unemployment rate in the country rather than wasting precious time to criticize his predecessor for their wrongs which according to her is not reason the NPP party was voted into power.
“…the President should be telling us exactly how many jobs he has created in the Volta region alone. He should be telling us the numbers he’s added on in the Volta region alone. He shouldn’t be reminding us of what John Mahama did or didn’t do, said or hasn’t said, we are not interested in that. There are problems in the Volta region. He should be telling us of what he has done to address those problems. We don’t want him to be telling us about John Mahama. We already know what John Mahama did and didn’t do, we don’t need him to remind us…” she exclaimed.
“If the President has any solution to our problems, he should tackle that we do not need him to remind olhs of what his predecessor did because we already know,” she said.
The NDC on Tuesday 5th November, 2019,accused the Nana Akufo-Addo led government of being the most nepotist Ghana has ever seen.
Addressing the media at the party headquarters in Accra, the communications officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi enumerated what he says are classical examples of nepotism in the current administration.
“Ladies and gentlemen of the press, among Akufo-Addo’s uncountable relatives in government is Nana Asante Bediatuo, his cousin from Kyebi, who serves as his Executive Secretary. Bediatuo is not alone! He is joined in government by his father, Kofi Darko Asante, who chairs the Governing Council of GlMPA, his mother, Mrs. Vida Asante, who is the head of the Presidential Household and his brother, Kwesi Kuntu Asante, who sits on the Board of Ghana Hostels. In addition, Nana Asante Bediatuo’s sister, Lauretta Asante (marital name, Otchere), is one of the three Deputy Directors-General at SSNIT who have been appointed by this government.
“Other relatives of President Akufo-Addo who currently occupy various positions in his government include, Ken Ofori Atta, Minister of Finance, Samuel Atta Akyea, Works and Housing Minister, and Kwesi Amoako Atta, Minister for Roads and Highways, all of whom are cousins of the President.
“Friends from the media, in an unprecedented move, President Akufo-Addo has made his own daughter, Gyankroma Akufo-Addo, a member of the Creative Arts Council.”
