The Vice-President of the Republic at the just ended Annual Delegates Conference and rally was served with his own dosage of message by the main opposition party, National Democratic Congress.
The dosage was given by former National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) CEO, Mr. Sylvester Mensah who led the NDC delegation to give its goodwill message at the conference.
According to the former NHIA CEO, “Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, as well as market women, nurses, bankers, teachers, doctors and virtually all Ghanaians, is suffering.
The National Delegates Conference took place at the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre on Sunday, 22 December 2019.
“Walewale Adam Smith, Ghanaians are suffering”, Mr Mensah reiterated to the Vice-President and the entire NPP family at the conference.
Addresaing delegates at the conference he noted that, the Akufo-Addo government for the past three years have nothing to show adding, “Regrettably, Mr Chairman, we have witnessed policies and regulatory interventions that have had dire consequences for entrepreneurs, skilled staff and customers of financial institutions”.
“We have witnessed the mass exit of Ghanaians from jobs in the public sector just because they profess a political philosophy other than yours”, he opined.
Mr. Sylvester Mensah flanked by executives of the NDC reiterated Bawumia ‘s dosage shouting “Our teachers are suffering, market women are suffering, students are suffering, nurses are suffering, bankers are suffering, doctors are suffering, the vice-president is suffering”.
With regards to press freedom, he told the charged delegates of the NPP that, the continuous closure of media houses perceived to be sympathetic o the NDC is a bad omen hence press freedom is under siege.
Describing such an act as a blot on our political dispensation, on our democracy and undermines tolerance and freedom of expression. It is a legacy no one should be proud of.
Meanwhile he said the NDC is “closely monitoring and observing the deliberate harassment of its National Chairman, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo”, adding: “Finally, on behalf of the NDC and our flag bearer, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, the next President of the Republic of Ghana, we salute the NPP for the courage to hold a National Delegates Conference during this Christmas season, when the sentiment of the majority of Ghanaians is that of a ‘sakora’ Christmas.”
To him, “Our politics should be a reason to take this country forward, and not a reason to tear it apart that, our ideologies, policies and approaches may be different but that is the beauty of political pluralism.”
And used the opportunity to urge the NPP not to forget to plan your exit from government in 2020.
