‘Nana Addo simply had to expose NDC’s lies’ – Jinapor

A Deputy Chief of Staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has defended President Nana Akufo-Addo’s supposed harsh posturing during his address on the Ghana-US defence cooperation.



The President has been criticized by some opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) figures for what has been described as a condescending speech on the matter, but Mr. Jinapor said the President’s tone was only in response to the insincerity of the opposition.


The MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, said President Akufo-Addo’s address was a condescending and insulting response to genuine concerns of Ghanaians.

But speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana, Mr. Jinapor said the persons opposed to the agreement were only engaging in “falsehood” and “propaganda”.

“He [the president] is only outraged by the calibre of [persons] who are out there for the height of political opportunism just because of immediate political gain… There is absolutely no sincerity in any submission or claim made by honourable Okudzeto and or the NDC, and that is exactly what the president has sought to expose,” Mr. Jinapor said.

Ignore the hypocrites

President Akufo-Addo himself urged Ghanaians to ignore persons he described as hypocrites and naysayers during his speech on Thursday evening.

He said he was outraged at some of the rhetoric emerging in opposition to the deal.

Critics have said the Akufo-Addo government was mortgaging of Ghana’s sovereignty by accepting the agreement.

But the President insisted that Ghana’s sovereignty has not been traded as has been suggested by the NDC, among other critics.

He added that it was highly hypocritical of people who are fully aware of the details of the agreement and the benefits to have chosen to confuse Ghanaians with falsehood in the name of political expediency.

“Let us concentrate and spend our energies on working together to achieve that goal of a happy and prosperous Ghana, and reject the hypocrisy of the naysayers who led our country into bankruptcy and the worse economic record of modern Ghanaian history.”

“Surely, this is the kind of cynical manipulation by reckless self-seekers, which, in the fullness of time, the people of Ghana will acknowledge and condemn. And I am sure that as the facts become clear and widely available, and as the people come to terms with the evidence, they will reject the falsehood and deliberate attempts to destabilize our peaceful country. Truth is sacrosanct,” President Akufo-Addo said.
