After news broke that Dr. Tony Aidoo has accused government of making life less burdensome for the Ghanaian, a member of government has jumped to his defense and blamed the media for twisting the facts.
Myjoyonline.com was first to break the story and Mr. Yamoah Ponko believes it is a deliberate attempt by the publishers to knock heads around within the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In an interview with Okay FM, the Municipal Chief Executive for Ejisu Juaben noted that it feels sad to offer your opinions on an issue and find news outlets publishing an entirely different thing.
Dr. Tony Aidoo is reported to have said that government has failed in taking decisive steps to cap the leakages in the system, particularly at the revenue mobilisation points, which tend to cause the masses to suffer.
The out-going Head of Policy Monitoring and Evaluation at Office of the President on Wednesday urged government to backup and stop giving excuses for the inability to deliver what it promised Ghanaians. But Mr. Yamoah Ponko called on the NDC executives not to feed on such publications which has the tendency to disintegrate the party.
