Dumsor: Mahama must stop deception – NPP

AkomeaThe opposition New Patriotic Party  (NPP) has accused President John Mahama of “rampant deception of the people” over the unrelenting power crisis and other issues.

In a statement, the NPP catalogued instances where it believes the government has not been transparent with the public.

The NPP claims that persistent power crisis remains a classic example of deception of the Ghanaian people by government, stating that despite the many assurances by the President to end the crisis, Ghanaians has suffered unannounced power cuts since June 2012.

The NPP statement also waded into the tension between the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) and government.

The party says CHASS’ threat to close down secondary schools across the country due to delay by government to pay feeding and other allowances is also a sign of deception by the Mahama-led administration.

The NPP Communications Director, Nana Akomea, blames the impasse on government’s hurried decision to implement the free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

According to him government did not think through the policy properly before implementation.

The NPP points out that the President and his communicators have been at pains to assure Ghanaians he has not been on any campaign.

The NPP also wants the President to stop saying its ‘Accounting to the Peopls Tour’ is not a campaign strategy ahead of elections in December.

According to the party, the President and governement communicators will be lying if they say they have not asked Ghanaians during the tour to “gave Mahama a second chance or “vote for him”.

The party wants the Mahama-led administration to stop the “deception”.
