Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mame Yaa Aboagye, has taken a swipe at the National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi over his comments about President Akufo-Addo.
Following the 5th update of President Akufo-Addo’s address to the nation on COVID-19, Sammy Gyamfi noted that the President’s freebies are not enough.
He stated that providing an uninterrupted electricity supply to Ghanaians is not a novelty for the government to expect praises.
According to him, a neighboring country like Togo is enjoying free electricity.
“Even locked down Togo with less recorded cases of COVID-19 are enjoying free water and electricity. So why can’t you [President Nana Addo] give the people electricity for free? Good, water is essential but how many people have flowing taps in their homes? But the majority have lights so give them electricity for free”, he said.
Mame Yaa Aboagye has asked Sammy Gyamfi to leave Ghana for Togo if Togo is enjoying free electricity.
To her, it always baffled her mind when learned people like Sammy Gyamfi compared Ghana to Togo.
“I expect him (Sammy Gyamfi) to know better because Ghana’s population and size alone cannot be compared to that of Togo…It totally depicts his argument, more so we are not in normal times…We are in an era where a lot of running water is used to wash our hands so I think, as a caring President, the best he could have done is what he (President Akufo-Addo) demonstrated on Sunday for all Ghanaians and if you can’t appreciate fair enough but just shout up.
“…just relocate to Togo if you are not content with the President‘s decision,” she stressed.
