National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi, has described as “very needless and irritating” the New Patriotic Party’s National Chairman’s real State of the Nation Address.

According to him, anyone who had watched the press conference could have easily deduced that the NPP was out of touch with reality.

The NPP Chairman, Stephen Ayensu Ntim, had addressed the nation to debunk certain allegations made by the NDC Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, in the latter’s true State of the Nation Address.

The NDC on Monday, March 20, among other things, tagged the NPP as clueless and corrupt during its State of the Nation Address delivered by its National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).

The NPP in response had described the event as a “propaganda-laced press conference” and a platform used to peddle “blatant falsehoods, unsubstantiated allegations, and unprovoked attacks at the persons of the President, the Vice President and the Government of the NPP”.

However, Sammy Gyamfi has argued that the assertions made by the NPP chairman were skewed and meant to mislead the Ghanaian population.

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, he said, “What they did was very needless, very irritating. I’m sure many well-meaning, objective minds who watched were amazed that in these times of hardship, in these times where labour, GUTA, AGI, you know, all Ghanaians are up in arms against government because of the excruciating hardships they’re reeling under, the Chairman of the ruling party will call a press conference not to talk about the pragmatic steps his government is putting in place to ameliorate the plight of the people, but to compare the performance of his government with a government that left office about seven years ago – which comparisons are flawed anyway and to make very very flimsy excuses for the failings of President Akufo-Addo, Alhaji Bawumia, which has plunged the country into the economic quagmire we find ourselves.”
