UE: Mr. President, your communicators are suffering – NPP Communicator urges President to act

The President is being called upon to take urgent action and bring finality to the issues surrounding the Dome-Kwabenya MP, Sarah Adwoa Sarfo’s role as Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection.

This is because the current impasse is making it increasingly difficult for party communicators to comment on the issue. Again, instead of communicating the government’s many policies, communicators are forced to take precious time to parry off allegations from the opposition NDC that would seek to take advantage of the situation.

All the while doing this, party communicators at the regional levels are starved of information and as such, are restrained in making viable comments on the issue.

This has become a slight on the governance of the New Patriotic Party led by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

These sentiments were shared by Osman Akariyamah, a member of the NPP’s Upper East Regional Communication Team. He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

“If I sit 600 kilometres away from the capital, I do not know what is going on there, even in Parliament where their proceedings are live, how much more cabinet? Cabinet meetings are not streamed live. We do not know what is going on there. Cabinet has sat more than 6 times, what is going on?”

“What is there that the president cannot do? We are pleading with the President; we are talking about breaking the 8, government policies are there that we need to trumpet. Government has done a lot we need to trumpet. Let us not give the opposition and other Ghanaians the opportunity to use a minute problem to overshadow the good works of government.”

“I struggle to understand what is going on with regards to this woman’s issue.”

“We are calling on the President, he appoints and disappoints. We have seen how others were fired in our first term, but what is happening now? I want to use this opportunity to call on the president, I want to call on the Council of State, I want to call on the party elders, they should see what they can do to solve this little problem.”

“Mr President, your communicators are suffering. We are suffering to explain some of these things [issues surrounding Adwo Sarfo]. We do not know what is going on . He [the President] should come up with certain pragmatic solutions,” he said.

He said the caretaker minister would not be able to perform as expected because of the extra roles and responsibilities she already has.

“She [Cecelia Dapaah] has to provide policy direction, how would she be able to do that. Not long ago, we have school feeding caterers going on a strike because the payments had not been released and the amount was not enough.”

“The one who is going to be in charge. The one who is going to source funds to ensure that to provide for all of these things is not available,” he said.

Earlier, the Director of Legal Affairs of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba faulted President Akufo- Addo for allowing the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya to still stay in office as the Minister in charge of Gender, Children and Social Protection despite her prolonged stay in the US.
