Ken Ofori-Atta’s 2020 budget review has downsized the propagandistic approach of the NDC.
The contents of the budget appear to have disintegrated their yet-to-be released manifesto so much so that they have unleashed James Agyenim-Boateng to come out with a rather lame, shallow and wobbly communicative strategy.
James Agyenim-Boateng says the contents of the mid-year budget are indicative of the fact that the Akufo-Addo administration has performed woefully.
The refrain, as he also makes a stronger case of same, is for the Akufo-Addo administration to account for some GHc11 billion earmarked for the fight against COVID-19.
Agyenim-Boateng says medical and health professionals keep complaining about inadequate PPEs and that, to him, is indicative of the fact that the money has been misapplied.
He seems to have forgotten about the various interventional policies rolled out by the Akufo-Addo Government. Apart from paying frontline workers and giving them tax exemptions, Ghanaians have enjoyed free electricity and water and are still enjoying them.
The idea of Ghanaians enjoying these freebies gives these people nightmares and the strategy is to tell Ghanaians it is an ill-conceived idea. They should better come with alternative ideas and stop these needless gymnastics.
