Stop the Propaganda; Speak in the Nation’s Interest – Oppong-Nkrumah to Mahama

Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah has urged former President John Dramani Mahama to stop passing cynical comments about social intervention policies being implemented by government.

Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah advised John Mahama to make his public utterances based on facts, and in the interest of the nation.

“The administration thereby encourages the former President that when it comes to state and national matters, it will be best if he speaks in the national interest, and speak to facts,” he stated.

The Information Minister was reacting to recent claims by former President Mahama that he had encountered many students who have complained about how bed bugs have infested their dormitories due to the congestion as a result of the Free SHS.

He accused the former President of working against government’s Free SHS programme, emphasizing the latter’s subtle attempts at ‘demonizing’ the project at the least opportunity.

Addressing the press Monday, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah disclosed that government has fumigated 678 out of 700 public Senior High Schools to get rid of bedbugs and other insects.

According to the Minister, the erstwhile Mahama administration did not record any form of fumigation exercise in Senior High Schools but have deliberately decided to overlook the feats of the Akufo-Addo administration.

“There are no records available of the last time all senior high schools in Ghana were fumigated comprehensively even under the tenure of former President Mahama like has been done today. It is interesting that things that he did not do even, even when it is done under this administration, he seeks to pretend he is not aware,” Oppong-Nkrumah noted.
