The Upper East Regional Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abdallah Salifu Jonathan, has taken a swipe at the governing New Patriotic Party Communication Director, Peter Ayınbisa Ayamga, for releasing a press statement in response to the school feeding challenges in the region.

Following a press statement by the NDC which unveiled the challenges the school feeding program faced in the region, the NPP on the other hand, released a counterstatement on the issue, highlighting why the NDC should not have released a statement on the issue.

But speaking to Mark Smith on the Daybreak Upper East show, the NDC Communication Officer, Mr. Abdallah, described Peter Ayinbisa’s press statement as empty and a waste of time, saying it lacks substance. He also used the opportunity to urge Mr. Ayinhisa to desist from responding to all issues and rather advise the government to be responsible in handling developmental issues.

“When the system is bad, let’s see it as a bad case and let us all call on government to fix it for us, that is all about it. So sometimes when I get a reaction from people who know better and [are] fine by nature but because of politics they will push them to go and be doing things that they are not supposed to do. I think that my brother [Peter Ayinbisa] he is a Communication Director but it does not mean that he should be responding to everything seriously. I think maybe Peter didn’t listen to the interview you had with Alfa Siiba because if he had, [regarding] this statement he issued, this empty statement he issued, he wouldn’t have attempted [to respond],” he said.

But in response, Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga, the Communication Director of the NPP, said the press statement sought to point out the falsehood peddled by the NDC in their press statement on the school feeding situation in the Upper East region.

“So our point is that it is not completely true that schools in this region have suspended cooking. I listened to Abdallah four days ago when you interviewed him and he sought to say that the whole region, nothing is happening, they were no cooking. And that is the impression he has created and left in the minds of the people which I am seeking to say that is not entirely true,” he said.
