A Communication team member of the main opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi says the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo is using the suspended Upper-West Regional Minister Alhaji Sulemana Alhassan as a scape-goat to cover-up the display of incompetence displayed in all sectors of governance especially security by the ruling New Patriotic Party.
In a Facebook post, Sammy Gyamfi alluded that the president is been hypocritical and selective in punishing wrongdoers in his government.
Below is the full statement;
So after a long desperate search, President Akufo Addo finally found a soft target to make his first “scapegoat”.
At long last, he has found a convenient prey (Alhaji Sulemana Alhasa- Upper West Regional Minister) whom he has hurriedly devoured to save his fast-waning integrity.
We are told that the rationale for this decision is to allow investigations to be conducted into the issues. So if I may ask, why was Ken Ofori Atta not suspended pending CHRAJ’s investigation into the infamous KENBOND SCANDAL? Why didn’t the President suspend Carlos Ahenkora, Alfred Obeng and the many other errant appointees of his, who have been subjects of similar investigations in the past? Is it because of the fact that the appointee in question is neither, a crony, family, financier, native nor friend of the president?
Mr. President! Your real motive for this hypocritical decision can only be lost on a political neophyte. Ghanaians are discerning. We can read between the lines and see through this face-cleansing gimmick.
Your double standards, naked bias, and unprincipled inconsistencies are too glaring. Ghanaians deserve better!
