NPP Has Not Lost Control Over Opposition Parties – Jennifer Queen
Jennifer Oforiwaa Queen has said the parties communication team is on top of affairs and has not lost control over opposition parties claims and criticism.
A Deputy Director of Communications for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Jennifer Oforiwaa Queen has said the party’s communication team is on top of affairs and has not lost control over opposition parties claim and criticism.
According to her, the communication team will continue to collaborate with the government Ministers for Information to expose claims from the opposition parties, especially the National Democratic Congress and feed Ghanaians with realities on the ground.
Her comment comes after some NPP serial callers on Radio accused the NPP Communications team of being ineffective and lack information to expose opposition spokespersons.
In an interview with Kofi Atakora, a reporter with Brytfmonline.com, Jennifer Oforiwaa Queen, who doubles as a Deputy Director of communication for the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) said responding to opposition parties without facts but keeps them on top of affairs, therefore, there is the need for all NPP communicators across the Country, especially those who defend the party daily on Radio, Television and on the social media to seek for facts from National communicators as well as MMDCE’s and Ministers of state to expose claims from the opposition parties.
Oforiwaa Queen revealed that the National Communication team would soon organize a special training for all Communicators across the country together with serial callers and charged them to be on top of issues always by dedicating their time for research and upgrading their communications skills.
The NPP’s National Communications team is headed by Lawyer Buabeng Asamoah, MP for Adenta Constituency and his deputies are Kamal-Deen Abdulai, Joyce Zempare, Haruna Mohammed, Yaw Preko, Akbar Yussif Rohullah Khomeini, Jennifer Oforiwaa Queen, Richard Asante Yeboah, Maame Yaa Aboagye, Kofi Agyapong and Richard Nyamah.
Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo has served notice that he will only respond to persons duly elected as presidential candidates of their respective parties, and not to persons seeking to lead their parties.
The President’s comment was borne out of recent attempts by aspirants of the leading opposition party in the country, the National Democratic Congress, to get the President to engage in a banter with them.
According to him “I am sure you have seen and heard some of the presidential aspirants of the leading opposition party taking jabs at my Government in order, ostensibly, to prop up their campaigns. And, whilst at it, they are desperately trying to get me to respond to them.”
