Communications Director for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has taken on the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) who may be thinking Ghanaians are zombies.
Government has blamed the hardship in the country on global challenges including COVID-19 and the Russia, Ukraine wars.
To government, until these challenges are addressed effectively , Ghanaians will have to suffer the brunt.
But speaking on Accra-based Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana, Sammy Gyamfi questioned government whether it thinks Ghanaians are zombies to be lied to.
He questioned whether the government thinks Ghanaians cannot decipher to know why the country is struggling.
“Do you think we can’t think and decipher what is happening to the Ghanaian economy? You have destroyed and collapsed the strong economy we bequeath to you. That strong which was projected in 2016 to grow by 8% in 2017 by the World Bank, IMF, Economic Intelligence Unit because of the two additional oil fields which were coming on stream owing to investments in that sector by the erstwhile Mahama government.”
He said it’s worrying that instead of the government to take responsibility for the failed economy, they are rather depending on Public Relations and poor propaganda.
“Instead of ttaking responsibility for their failure, government sits on radio stations and give flimsy excuses. Excuses that are insult to our sensibilities”
