Freelance Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni says Ofosu Ampofo lacks the moral right to condemn Akufo-Addo for hoarding the ambulances he has procured for political showmanship.
National Chairman of the National Democracy Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has picked on the Akufo-Addo led administration for parking newly purchased ambulances at the forecourt of Parliament house whilst Ghanaians are losing their lives on roads through accidents.
According to Mr Ampofo, flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama wouldn’t sit aloof to watch people die when there are national ambulances available to help save lives of citizens when there’s an emergency.
Addressing the public at the launch of an electronic payment platform to enable party members and sympathisers to contribute financially toward the party’s 2020 campaign in Accra on Thursday, January 16, 2020, the NDC National Chairman proclaimed that “the next president of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama will not display ambulances for four months in the open whilst precious lives are being lost. I’ve been told that if ambulances were available several of the lives that were lost in the recent accident would have been saved”.
He further alleged that “Nana Akufo-Addo is interested in more lives being lost” but there is the need for him to change from his ‘inhumane’ behaviour for the betterment of the nation.
But reacting to the comment by Ofosu Ampofo, Manasseh indicated that the NDC Chairman lacks the moral right to make such a comment because he did worse when he had power.
He said ” Some people don’t have the moral right to comment on some issues. Sir, you’re reminding us of the mess you created with the ambulances your government procured through that shady method and had to abandon those that arrived. Or do you think because you hid them in Burma Camp, nobody knows about them? I have done a documentary on it and it’s worse than the Akufo-Addo’s ambulances meant for political showmanship. Chairman, messages like this have the tendency of prolonging your days in opposition”.
