What the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party did while in power, which was condemned by many well-meaning Ghanaians, is gradually finding its ways into the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, Today can report.
Sheer arrogance and show of power are now the traits of many of the appointees of the Akufo-Addo-led government.
But interestingly, the same appointees who today want ordinary Ghanaians to worship them barely two years ago when they were in opposition had the effrontery to complain about the attitude of the appointees of former President John Dramani Mahama, for always being disrespectful to Ghanaians.
The Head of Public Relations (PRO) Unit of the Ministry of Education (MoE), Ekow Vincent Assafua, is one of the Akufo-Addo’s appointees who has no respect for anybody including journalists who are to inform public about government polices and programmes.
In an unprovocative manner Mr Assafua lost control of his temper when a producer from Accra-based Amansan Television (ATV), Isaac Oteng, yesterday called him into a programme on his mobile phone to explain more on the senior high school (SHS) double-track system which the NPP government has introduced to deal with the challenges of the Free SHS policy.
“You (referring to the ATV producer) are stupid!” That was his response to the telephone call immediately the producer identified himself that he works with ATV.
