You are Confused and Frustrated – Nana Obiri Boahen fires Minority in Parliament

The Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has described the Minority as “confused and frustrated” after their press conference to do their assessment of the first 100 days of the government.

According to him, the Minority’s press conference held earlier in the week is a “frustration-driven press conference.

The Minority in Parliament had described as unimpressive the first 100 days of President Nana Addo Dankwa Addo.

They said during the press conference last Tuesday in Parliament House that: “The early signs of government of our country under the NPP have been anything.

“Instead of implementing their policies and programmes, the initial steps in this government though uncertain, gives cause for major concerns.”

The Minority further lamented about what they say is the high level of indiscipline and lawlessness exercised by pro-NPP vigilante groups, Invisible Forces and Delta Force, and the failure by the government to create jobs for the masses.

But speaking in an interview on Kaleawo FM’s Morning Show, Nana Obiri Boahen said one could see frustration visibly written all over the faces of the minority and members of the NDC, adding that the NDC was in power “to create, loot and share.”

Touching on the Minority’s claim of an “elephant-sized” government formed by the President, Nana Boahen pointed out that the constitution allows any President to choose his own number of ministers he deems fit to work with.

When asked by host of the programme, Emmanuel Agbaxode whether the activities of the party’s vigilante groups should be condemned and demobilized, he answered: “Find out from Kofi Portuphy (National Chairman of the NDC) whether they will demobilize Azorka boys.”

The NPP’s deputy scribe after responding to questions on the performance of the government during these 100 days said, the government ought to be commended with a mark of between 80% and 85%.

But in a sharp rebuttal, the former Member of Parliament for North Dayi, George Loh disagreed with the assertion made by the NPP Deputy General Secretary, saying when the NPP was in opposition, they did same and that this is nothing new in any part of the world.

“This is what we call symbolic appraisal,” he said.

The NDC says there has not been any improvement in the first 100 days of the Akufo Addo-led administration, and scores the government between 15% and 20%.
