A former Deputy Minister of Communications under former President John Dramani Mahama’s govermment Mr. Felix Kwakye Ofosu says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party government is exploring a clever by half strategy to deflect responsibility in the country in the midst of “Fix the Country Campaign”
Mr. Felix Kwakye Ofosu said, before the National Democratic Congress (NDC) came to power in 2009, it had been preceded by a New Patriotic Party (NPP) government between 2001 and 2009 who messed up the the country beyond imagination but NDC never explore any strategy to deflect reaponsibilities with the NPP.
He expressed worry in President Akufo-Addo’s government to share responsibilities with past govermment who are not in power, neither are they in control of all national resources to fix the country yet, anytime the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government came in for criticism, it was singled out. According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) didn’t share the blame despite their past misdeeds which led to their exit from power in the first place.
Felix Kwakye Ofosu Indicated that, today, the Akufo-Addo and Bawumia government displays appalling incompetence and hopelessness and some apologists would have us believe that all parties are the same.
“Don’t let anyone get you to believe that. It is a clever by half strategy to deflect responsibility.” He said.
He has emphasized that, president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia alone are responsible for the mess we are in and no one else. He believes that, they took the decisions that have landed us here.”They are also in their fifth year, not their first year.” He explained.
He made this comment following the Social Media debacle on the hashtag FIX THE COUNTRY CAMPAIGN and a counter hashtag FIX YOURSELF and FIX YOUR ATTITUDE which generated heated debate on various platforms amongst political leaders from the two major political parties in Ghana NPP and NDC, Seasonal Media Practitioners, famous political social commentators and well-meaning Ghanaians.
