Shut Up: NDC gov’t stressed Ghanaians more than current NPP – Manasseh Azure tells Ofosu Ampofo

Shut Up: NDC gov’t stressed Ghanaians more than current NPP – Manasseh Azure tells Ofosu Ampofo

Freelance Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni jumped on the defence on the current Akufo-Addo administration. 

According to him, criticisms from the opposition National Democratic Congress on the ambulances distribution lacks moral standard.

In a Facebook post, he said “On some issues such the ambulances, however, the opposition NDC would look better if it decides to shut up”.

“John Mahama’s administration brought in 30 ambulances as part of a larger number of 200 procured under shady circumstances. The remaining 170 did not come and those that came were said to be fit for “trotro” or commuter vehicles, and not ambulances. A reported I sighted indicated they had as many as 18 defects.

“Those ambulances have been parked since 2015. If the NDC’s chairman is telling us that the man whose government parked ambulances for FIVE years, would not park ambulances for FOUR months, as Akufo-Addo is doing, then he should be reminded that his audience have brains. His government did exactly that, and worse. The ambulances were parked at the forecourt of parliament. When it was time for the 2016 election, the government realised it was heartless to keep the ambulances there while people were dying so they were transferred to the Air Force Base in Burma Camp, out of the public glare.” the post further reads.

I’m not suggesting that the NDC cannot comment on the mess of the Akufo-Addo government. Neither am I saying that the NDC’s mess justifies the mess which the Akufo-Addo administration is creating. On some issues such the ambulances, however, the opposition NDC would look better if it decides to shut up.

It is possible that Mr. John Mahama will win the 2020 or future elections and return as president of Ghana. Some of the things he is promising to do were things he could have done. It is only fair that we ask him why he did not do them while he was in office. We need to know what exactly he will do differently if given the opportunity again.
