Politics of Friday, 20 September 2019
The Eastern Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Jeff Konadu Addo, has jabbed the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) over what he claims to be a deliberate attempt to tag President Akufo-Addo with unsubstantiated corruption allegations.
According to him, the NDC members are using “well orchestrated lies and propaganda” to tarnish the image of the President and his government. He, therefore, urged them to desist from such acts.
“I want to tell members of the NDC especially Sammy Gyamfi and co to be cautious when it comes to issues about politics in this country. All available records point to the fact that the corruption tag is on the NDC and no amount of propaganda will wash it from them…,” he said.
He maintained that the attempt to tag the NPP with corruption would not materialize since the President and members of the NPP are not in a position to steal from the people.
Mr. Addo said Ghanaians know the NPP for its life-changing policies such as Free SHS, One-district, One-factory, One-constituency, One-ambulance, among others, and no amount of deliberate lies and propaganda against the government with corruption would work.
He said the posture of President Akufo-Addo towards corruption should by now tell the NDC that they are pursuing a lost cause.
