General News of Thursday, 20 July 2017
Deputy General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Obiri-Boahen has described the press conference by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as hollow.
According to the maverick politician, the largest opposition party failed to address in its press conference critical developmental issues.
The NDC Thursday, July 20, 2017, addressed the media on a myriad of issues to mark president Akufo-Addo’s six-month in office as head of the republic.
Addressing the media, the National Chairman of the NDC Kofi Portuphy among other things gave a scathing verdict of the government.
According to him, since the NPP took over from the NDC, the mood of the nation has been that of fear as lawlessness has been allowed to fester in the last six-month with an “unprecedented upsurge in violent crimes to the disbelieve of Ghanaians.”
Also, he scolded Akufo-Addo for not being on top of issues, describing him as a “legal alien.”
In his reaction, however, on Starr Today in an interview with Benard Nasara Saibu Mr. Obiri-Boahen described the press conference as “hollow, baseless and much-a-do-about nothing”, inundated with vilification of the president and the NPP.
“For goodness sake, we have a lot of problems confronting us as Ghanaians and we must discuss these issues holistically and let’s stop wasting our time on these frustration has driven politicians,” he urged.
