Ben Allotey Jacobs

Controversial Central Regional Communication Director of the National Democratic Congress, Bernard Allottey Jacobs has praised the NDC government’s Better Ghana agenda arguing that, even their General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia has gained some weight as a result of him enjoying a better life.

Speaking on the objective of the demonstration embarked upon by the Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) on Adom FM’s political talk show, Dea Me Hunu on Wednesday night, Allotey Jacobs stated that, even the lifestyle and living conditions of the AFAG leadership and their NPP executives, who led the demonstration, exposed the demonstrators as dishonest people.

He described them as living well and driving in huge vehicles due to the economic growth achieved though the government’s prudent policies despite the global economic pressures.

He says apart from the dishonest AFAG members and their NPP ‘pay masters’, all Ghanaians appreciate that Ghana has improved since President Mills took over the reins of the nation.

But NPP Member of Parliament for Asokwa, Maxwell Kofi Jumah rubbished the claims.

Kofi Jumah also disregarded the latest reshuffle describing it as having cleared the best people leaving the ‘bad’ ministers who have underperformed.

He stated that the reshuffle will make the NPP’s campaign easier adding that if the current set of ministers were in NPP, they would not come close to a ministerial appointment.

He mentioned Okudzeto Ablakwa, James Agyenim Boateng, Baba Jamal and Betty Mould Iddrisu as lacking the experience and knowledge to manage individual ministries adding that the NDC lacks the qualified men to govern the state.

Though he admitted that experience does not necessarily make a good minister, he claimed the NDC ministers lack the requisite knowledge and skills to do the job.

In a quick rebuttal, the Majority Chief Whip, Gershon Gbediame said he trusts the selection of the president, adding that qualities of good leadership are abundant in the selection of the current team.

He challenged the opposition NPP to contest free and fair elections insisting that they would be shocked at their loss.

He acknowledged that after the current backlash over the fuel price increase, he believes that fuel issues should never be politicized adding that it always comes back to haunt the political parties
