Deputy Minister of Communications, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, says former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management Public Administration (GIMPA), Prof. Stephen Adei must come out and apologise to Ghanaians for accusing President Mahama of practicing nepotism.
Prof. Adei contends that per his research findings, one out of every four of the President’s appointments come from his area of origin.
Speaking at Prempeh Colleges’ Pearson Osae lectures, Prof Adei said the practice must stop immediately.
“One of the things going on which is totally unacceptable is about why one out of every four public sector appointment comes from the President’s area of origin.’’
However, speaking to Atinka News Monday, Felix Kwakye Ofosu said he was really surprised that an elderly person with much experience would make such utterances.
‘‘It has rolled back the gains we’ve made in our politics and that he must retract what he said and apologize to Ghanaians for making such a divisive statement which is an unfounded claim,’’ the Deputy Minister charged.
Mr Kwakye Ofosu further explained that there are a lot of people who are politicians who pretend to be neutral but their deeds shall surely tell which political party they belong to.
