The arrogance of politicians when they get into power knows no bounds. And their hypocrisy certainly rivals that of the legendary Pharisees and Sadducees from biblical times.
It wasn’t that long ago that Bawumia was telling us that if the fundamentals are weak, the cedi would expose you. Now he’s claiming that even if the cedi continuously depreciates, it doesn’t mean the fundamentals are weak.
And the NPP which pilloried the NDC over dumsor whilst in opposition is now in power and dumsor has made its return. Instead of being honest with Ghanaians and fixing the issue, their officials are rather lying about its return and claiming Ghanaians are complaining too much.
Deputy Minister of Energy, William Owuraku Aidoo, claims that Ghanaians are complaining too much over just a little dumsor when we accepted Mahama’s dumsor for years without any complaints.
He said: “It is really interesting that Ghana has gotten into the state that we are. Within just two years of Nana Akufo-Addo’s government, Ghanaians are not of one week of Akufo-Addo’s government Ghanaians are not tolerant of power disturbance and that is saying something.
“It is only a week and it’s causing a lot of difficulties and inconvenience to people but they cannot stand it unlike some time back when we had to endure years and years of dumsor without too much of Wahala“.
During the NDC dumsor, even NPP politicians where creating so much wahala about it, not to talk of Ghanaians, so this assertion is yet another insensitive politician’s trick.
To say the NPP has been a disappointment in office would be the understatement of the decade.
