Deputy Minister for Information, Pius Enam Hadzide has indicated that the presence of too many ‘young boys’ in the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is causing what he describes as ‘child’s play’ in the largest opposition party in the country, the National Democratic Congress(NDC).
His comment is in response to a press conference convened by the NDC’s Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, on Sunday, February 16.
Sammy Gyamfi among other things hinted of the party’s decision to petition the United Nations General Secretary, António Guterres to revoke President Akufo Addo’s appointment as the Co-Chair of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Advocates.
The Party at the press conference held on the banks of the ‘brownish’ Prah River in Twifo Praso in the Central Region, insisted that President Akufo-Addo has failed ‘woefully’ in the fight against illegal mining (galamsey) and the protection of the environment which is a direct contrast to his role in ensuring universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030, a goal of the UN’s SDG.
John Dramani Mahama, during his tenure as President was accused of back-benching rather experienced hands in his party for relatively younger, inexperienced persons to play critical roles in his government. The situation led to several cracks in the NDC as the older, experienced persons such as Alban Bagbin, E.T. Mensah and Mark Woyongo who felt marginalised lashed out at the move and predicted doom for the party in the 2016 general elections if nothing was done about the situation.
