The National Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, thinks Ghana would have been far better without the inclusion of NPP in Ghana’s politics – he described the party as a “disgraceful” party no person must join.
His comment comes after the NPP in a statement called for an investigation into Allotey Jacob’s US travel and alleged arrest.
The NPP in a statement issued by Nana Akomea, NPP’s Communications Director on Tuesday said “If this trip is sponsored by the Ghanaian taxpayer, we wish to know if it is in consonance with the recent directive from the Office of Chief of Staff, ostensibly issued to curtail wasteful, expensive, luxurious travels by public officials.”
Portion of the statement also reads – “Indeed, the corruption and incompetence that have characterized the Mahama administration is readily evidenced in this ‘Allotey Bernard Sag’ where the dealings of an important State institution, the National Petroleum Authority, is subjected to party cronyism and left in the hands of a board member who is bereft of the competence and expertise in the activities of the institution mandated to regulate, oversee and monitor the petroleum downstream industry in Ghana.”
Nonetheless, Kofi Adams believes the call by the NPP is unneeded and must be slammed – “NPP is a disgrace to Ghana politics.”
“Indeed Ghana would have been better without NPP but unfortunately we have to contain them. Because of their lies, Ghanaians are insulting UK and their commissioner to Ghana, yet their flagbearer (Nana Addo) has kept mute on the issue before of his benefits” he said
The NDC National Organizer also criticized heavily the NPP’s statement and maintained that its content is below standard.
“Are you satisfied with the content of their statement? I will be surprise if anyone is satisfied with the content,” he told host Kwesi Aboagye on ‘Ghana Montie’ programmee.
