Mahama has no moral right to call NPP gov’t names – Oppong Nkrumah
The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has taken a swipe at former President John Dramani Mahama, saying he has no moral right to criticize President Akufo-Addo’s leadership.
John Dramani Mahama recently expressed concerns over what he describes as the Akufo- Addo administration’s penchant for blaming the previous government for its woes.
He also said that the recent shut down of radio stations by the NCA is politically motivated and urged the President to intervene.
He also believes freedom of the media is under threat under the Akufo-Addo administration because the government has failed to protect the rights and lives of journalists in the country.
But the Ofoase-Ayirebi MP has debunked this describing the comments of the Former President as unfair.
According to him, recent remarks by the former statesman is politically mischievous and demonstrating of double standards.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah further stated that it is imperative for the government to responsibly remind Ghanaians and the opposition especially of its achievements hence, claims by the NDC flagbearer that government has not really done enough since assuming office cannot hold.
“Three years on, we remain accountable to the people of Ghana to commit and explain to them what we have achieved so far and what remains outstanding in all humility. But when you have the former President or executives of the former administration now seek the moral high ground and preach to the country about how better to manage the economy, we have a responsibly to quickly point to them what they record is vis-à-vis what are records are while we look at ways out there to complete what remains undone of our agenda.” he indicated in an interview on Point Blank segment of Eyewitness News with host Umaru Sanda Amadu.
