The General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has stated that President Akufo Addo has appointed a bunch of ex-girlfriends into key government positions.
Speaking on 3FM, the man whose popularly known as General Mosquito said:
“There is a current Deputy Governor of Bank of Ghana, that fair lady, ask her history with Nana Addo, that is his ex-girlfriend. This is a fact, put the blame on me, and let people sue me for telling them this.”
Asiedu Nketia went on to state that a substantial number of President Akufo-Addo’s appointees are members of his family too.
“We have one-third of Akufo-Addo’s family being government appointees. A woman was made ambassador because her major qualification is having a child with Nana Addo. This is a fact,” Asiedu Nketiah said.
“They talked about nepotism, cronyism and so on. They said Mahama was appointing too many of his family members in government and they thought that everything there in terms of contracts and others were monopolized by people close to him,” he added.
Asiedu Nketia further stated that the NPP government keeps shooting itself in the foot, which is evident in decisions being made by government.
“If you are in government and you want to compromise the neutrality of the institutions that are supposed to restrain your government by putting your favourite people there, in the end, you will be misled into thinking that you are helping yourself because you are rather damaging yourself and that is what is happening now.”
