General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has forewarned the Akufo-Addo led government of continuous criticism against the PDS concession debacle.
Mr Asiedu Nketiah stated that the opposition will amplify its criticism in the coming days adding the government’s diversionary tactics won’t work.
In an interview on Kasapa FM, Mr Asiedu Nketiah said President Akufo-Addo and the NPP government are deliberately setting agenda to sway critics from the PDS brouhaha.
“The PDS blow has confused the government and that is the main reason for the President’s walkabout lately. They are finding every means to end the conversations about the PDS saga. The President’s Angola trip was occasioned by the PDS issue and I can tell you for a fact that the US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Ghana was also partly because of the PDS matters. There is no doubt that PDS is like a tsunami that will blow up the government,” said General Mosquito said.
His comment comes on the heels of the Minority’s petition to the United States Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan, demanding investigations by the US Government into the PDS issue.
The petition signed by the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu was delivered at the US Embassy in Accra by the Ranking Member on Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
