If Ghanaians were nursing the notion that the NDC has been traipsing around our political landscape with an air of patriotism, they’re better off snapping out of this delusion.
A deluge of reasons have been assigned by the NDC, the Minority, as to why they joined forces with the Majority to approve Ken Ofori-Atta as the Finance Minister.
Of all the ludicrously absurd reasons they have been given, none stands out and verges on the ridiculous than the one Asiedu Nketiah gave on Neat FM. The mindset of the leadership of the NDC loudly depicts the looming danger of this country if these people are given the mandate to govern us.
Johnson Asiedu Nketiah said that Ken Ofori-Atta has been a mess in running the Finance Ministry and country’s economy and so if he is given the green light to continue, he will plunge the economy further into a dungeon, thereby destroying the economy.
This, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah indicated, bodes well for the opposition party since the disheveled economy would inure to the advantage of the opposition National Democratic Congress during elections.
In effect, the NDC has chosen to be quiet for the country’s economy to be in ruins, assuming without admitting that what they are saying is even true. That couches the NDC as a tradition peopled with elements who do not want the best for the country. It is all about their parochial interests.
Stretching their pathetic argument, one can proceed to ask the NDC why then do they rant, whine and berate Government when they have reasons to believe that things have gone wrong?
Since keeping quiet would ensure that things deteriorate further, upping their political fortunes further, why then do they raise issues about them? This is senseless, if one looks at it critically.
