NPP Losing Propaganda War To NDC Despite Good Works – Kennedy Agyapong | Politics

Published

on


Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, has stressed that the ruling New Patriotic Party, NPP, is losing the propaganda war in advancing its achievements.

According to the outspoken MP, the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, was setting the agenda for the ruling party, leaving communicators on the backfoot.

Agyapong told the host of Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben programme on April 7, that he stressed this point while speaking to the tertiary student group of the NPP, TESCON, during a programme at Cape Coast.

“I told TESCON members to be proud of the NPP stock looking at work done, but because we are unable to win propaganda and always allowing the NDC to set the agenda for us, hence people do not see the work done.

“Our communication is poor, we have to do something about it. I don’t blame communicators because if a person doesn’t have information, what can he do?” he quizzed.

He called for the ministries and agencies to cascade information to communicators for onward transmission to the populace. He disclosed telling Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko that the ‘Meet The Press’ series must employ the use of videos of work that has been done for the populace to see.

“All the fingers are not the same but if you presume that people will see what you are doing, I am afraid, that is a mistake, so we must improve party communication,” he added.

Speaking at the same event, National Organizer, Sammi Awuku, made similar sentiments: “In 2024, it’s important that we tell ourselves from today that we own the campaign and the victory for 2024.

“So let’s move away from allowing our opponents to define us and set the narrative. Let’s move away from people calling you to ask you if you are listening to this radio station or watching this TV.

“Our government, we’ve done enough, but the biggest obstacle between us and 2024 is how we shape the narrative for victory in 2024. I want to appeal to your conscience, emotions and what we do; let’s not leave the project for just President Akufo-Addo. Let’s own the project ourselves.

“I am happy that the National Youth Wing and the Danquah Institute decided to give us this platform. As we see each other and shale hands, I want to encourage you; from today, let the narrative be different,” he urged.

President Akufo-Addo is on record to have expressed similar concerns during an interview on a Kumasi-based radio channel as part of his Ashanti Regional tour in 2021.

We’ll Need To Take a Decision If Parliament Resumes And Adwoa Safo Is Still Not Back  – John Boadu | Politics

Published

on


The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has insisted that the Gender, Children and Social Protection Ministry is in good hands.

The Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya constituency who doubles as the sector Minister has been on leave since the beginning of the year.

President Akufo-Addo has since designated the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah as the caretaker.

This situation has been described as worrying especially as the Ministry is reportedly fraught with a lot of challenges.

Meanwhile, Adwoa Safo in a reaction on social media wrote: “I won’t stay in the USA forever. I have a social contract with the good people of Dome-Kwabenya which I consider sacrosanct. In good time, I will be back to continue the good work we have done in the constituency and ably represent their interest and aspiration in the August House of Parliament.”

Speaking to this on Peace FM’s ‘The Platform’ programme, John Boadu described the situation as “dicey” adding the party will take a decision if Parliament resumes from recess and she’s not back.

” . . this situation is a bit dicey . . . I know we have a competent hand taking care of the place in Hon Cecilia Dapaah. . . with this challenge; if you don’t take care, any form of decision can worsen the matter . . . I want to believe that very soon we’ll get out of this . . . we don’t want to compound and create more issues out of this. If Parliament resumes and she’s not back then we need to take a decision as to the way forward for the Ministry,” he told Nana Yaw Kesseh.

Parliament on Recess

Parliament went on break on April 5, 2022, to end the First Meeting of the Second Session of the Eighth Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Majority Leader of parliament, Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has said that parliament is likely to resume from their recess on 24th May, 2022.

Even a Baby Won’t Trust Mahama; Methodist Bishop Was Right – Hon. Sylvester Tetteh | Politics

Published

on


Sylvester Tetteh, Member of Parliament(MP) for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro, has taken a swipe at Ex-President John Dramani Mahama and the National Democratic Congress on the party members’ attacks on Methodist Bishop, Rt. Rev. Bosomtwe Ayensu.

The Methodist Bishop has incurred the wrath of the opposition after shooting a reply to the Ex-President John Mahama’s promise to repeal the E-Levy implemented by government.

Background 

Delivering a public lecture on the theme “Ghana at a Crossroads” on Monday, May 2, Mr. Mahama said “a new National Democratic Congress government, God willing and with the votes of the sovereign people of Ghana – in 2025 – will repeal the E-Levy Act”.

He argued that “even as this government remains fixated with taxing their way out of economic mismanagement, the Akufo-Addo government has been wasteful. They have failed to demonstrate prudence in public financial management. The people of Ghana cannot be called upon to pay more taxes only for the accruing money belonging to the people of Ghana, to be dubiously and wastefully shared among family and friends through various fraudulent procurement practices”.

But Rt. Rev. Ayensu dissented to the views of the former President saying “a leading opposition party says this government has been borrowing to fund projects. But it [the government] has been strategic this time to introduce this homegrown policy to build our nation. So if someone says he will repeal this law when he wins power then such a person will not even win power to abort it”.

“If the E-levy is a good policy why will you abolish it? Such people can’t even do it because history keeps guiding us. Such comments usually end up as a political talk and deceit,” he stated.

NDC Rebukes Methodist Bishop

The NDC has described the Bishop as “NPP propagandist” and a “vile” human being.

“He is a vile, unintelligent NPP propagandist parading in cassock…no rational man of God will do this…The NDC as a responsible opposition has every right to state our position if we feel certain policies of the government will unnecessarily burden Ghanaians and also provide alternative solution to that. If you think or feel otherwise, you can equally comment without attacking or making disparaging comments about the person of the former president HE John Dramani Mahama,” the National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, snapped.

Methodist Bishop Is Right

Addressing the issue on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo”, Hon. Sylvester Tetteh vehemently condemned the verbal attacks on the Bishop stating what he said is truth.

He wondered why the Bishop would attract an outrage because, to him, he was right in his comments.

Defending the Bishop, the MP noted that the former President’s track record proves he isn’t trustworthy.

He alluded to some promises Mr. Mahama made while in government but failed to accomplish them and concluded that “a baby even doesn’t believe him (Mahama)…credibility, he lacks it. So, the Methodist Bishop is right to say that indeed he won’t win power to repeal it”.

He advised Ghanaians against trusting Mr. Mahama stressing “you trust him at your own risk”.
