NDC’s ‘Yenntua Demo’ hypocritical and highly unnecessary – Ntim

Stephen Ayesu Ntim, the ruling New Patriotic Party’s former National First Vice Chairman and aspiring National Chairman, has rebuked the opposition NDC for their Yentua demonstration.

The NPP’s top gun has characterized the demonstration as hypocritical and useless. According to him, the NDC is only, as usual, seeking to take advantage of the situation for political reasons.

Mr. Ntim added when engaging party members during his trip of the North East Region, “We were in Ghana when the NDC demonstrated against the Communications tax in 2008, but after attaining executive power, we ended up increasing the rate.”

“We were in Ghana when condoms and cutlasses were significantly charged,” he continued. What are they talking about?” he inquired while engaging party members in the North East Region.

He went on to say that it’s sad that the NDC’s political fortunes are riding on the e-levy, which is causing unnecessary tension in the country.

In his view, the impacts of the deadly coronavirus epidemic are being felt by every country.

“COVID-19 has had a negative impact on every country in the world, including Ghana. Everywhere, the cost of living has risen. Why should Akufo-Addo be held responsible for a global phenomenon? There is no such thing as a normal life for the residents of any country. The NDC’s fortunes should not be staked on this. To say the least, it’s a dishonest manner of politicking,” he said.

He went on to say that the government is now holding town hall meetings to engage the public and that the final draft will undoubtedly address the public’s concerns.
