Whether scientifically proven or not, a government communication machinery, Alhaji Naziru Mohammed claims it is difficult to relate to people who sojourn to Europe when they speak to issues due to the effect of snow.
He believes the cold weather renders them incapable of getting to recall precisely what goes on in their home country.
According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo, the 2012 Presidential Candidate of New Patriotic Party (NPP’s), recent criticism of the Mahama administration’s anti-corruption campaign, clearly shows he is suffering from the effects of the snow.
Nana Akufo-Addo, commenting on the anti-corruption measures and the economic management style of President Mahama, wrote on his Facebook wall that “the situation in Ghana today, as we know, is one of endemic corruption, worsening economic hardship for the masses, struggling businesses and lack of jobs for the youth, under a government that lacks focus, and only knows how to tax and borrow and not how to govern for the people.”
“……Ghanaians are becoming more and more convinced that the NPP is the party that can rescue the country and put us back onto the path of social security and prosperity”, Nana stressed.
But commenting on Nana Akufo-Addo’s remarks on Okay Fm, the NDC Communicator posited that the NPP’s 2012 Flagbearer has lost touch with what is going on in the country since his trip to the United Kingdom.
“…Nana Akufo-Addo’s comment was unwarranted, considering the measures put up by President Mahama to deal with those implicated in the GYEEDA report…it is surprising to hear any Ghanaian complain about endemic corruption in the country; much more a former presidential candidate,” he stated.
He was of the opinion that because of the NDC’s openness in governance, Ghanaians are aware of the GYEEDA, Isofoton and SUBAH Infosolutions saga; the kind of transparency which was hitherto not seen under the NPP when they were in power.
“….the transparency in dealing with the GYEEDA case alone is better than during the days of Office of Accountability under President Kuffour….no report came out when President Kuffour was in power; now EOCO has given two dockets involving more than 35 people to the Attorney General’s Department for prosecution……though Nana Addo has not been out of the country for far too long, the snowy weather has affected his comments so much so that his remarks portray him as someone who has no notion of the happenings in the country,” he added.
