NDC presser was empty, cooked by incompetent people – JB Danquah

Joseph Boakye Danquah is an aspiring NPP parliamentary candidate

Joseph Boakye-Danquah, an aspiring NPP parliamentary candidate has launched an attack on the National Democratic Congress describing their recent presser as empty and a waste of precious time.

The NDC has listed persons it says are relatives and ‘entire nuclear family’ of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his led administration.

At a press conference on Tuesday, the National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi listed 51 names he said pointed to “classic and unprecedented” nepotism within the Akufo-Addo government.

According to Sammy Gyamfi, Nana Akufo-Addo vowed to eschew nepotism and cronyism in his government but has done otherwise.

“I will not operate a family and friends’ government,” he quoted the then NPP Presidential candidate.

But in Mr. JB Danquah’s view, instead of using the forum to manufacture fake stories of family members serving under President Akufo-Addo, the party could have offered the alternatives they would bring on board if voted for in 2020.

In an interview with Peacefmonline.com, the aspiring NPP parliamentary candidate for Subin noted that dedicating hours to talk about the family of the President could only be produced by “incompetent” leaders in the NDC.

“The NDC is still not appealing to the masses. If a whole opposition party can dedicate hours to organize a press conference and talk about family members of the sitting President, it paints a clear picture that they are not ready to come to power.

They have lost it and are not the alternative in 2020, it is a party still full of incompetent leaders and everything they address is empty- it has no substance”, JB Danquah said.
