Technical Economic Advisor in the Office of the Vice President, Dr Gideon Boako, has expressed shock at the lack of patriotism exhibited by members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) following the commissioning and distribution of some 307 ambulances by President Akufo-Addo last Tuesday.
According to the reputed Economic guru, his monitoring and assessment of commentary
after the event point to a dazed opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC )
sponsoring adverts against the ambulances on social media aimed at downplaying
their importance just as it had done with other projects and programmes of the
governing New Patriotic Party(NPP).
“I have been monitoring media reports and commentaries
after the commissioning of the 307 ambulances by President Akufo-Addo. One
thing is clear – the NDC looks dazed if I am not mistaken. Some of them have
started making comments on social media and sometimes when you read the
comments you wonder if they did so themselves.
Until the commissioning of the ambulances, I didn’t know politics could make us so unpatriotic. Suddenly, there are social media adverts sponsored against ambulances just as they did to the drones and Free SHS,” Dr Boako wrote in an article sighted by MyNewsGh.com.
Dr Boako added that the Akufo-Addo administration has always
counted the vicious propaganda of the NDC by delivering on their promises.
“Thankfully, anytime they have mounted such vicious
propaganda the President and his government have remained resolute and
So far, the drones have been delivered against the
propaganda of “You Can’t Do”, Free SHS has been delivered against the
propaganda of “It Is Not Possible” and now One Constituency One Ambulance is
delivered against the propaganda of “It Is All Hoax”,” he exemplified.
For him the opposition NDC has no record of having initiated and fully implemented any policy or programme, challenging them to name one of such programmes.
“Perhaps, we should ask the NDC to tell us any major
policy initiative they announced and truly were able to deliver. Would it be
One Time Premium for Health Insurance, Hope City or what?” he wondered.
