The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Henry Nana Boakye, says the falsehood propagated in the National Democratic Congress’ true State of the Nation Address is what had triggered the NPP’s response today.
According to him, the NPP had no intention to respond to the NDC’s State of the Nation Address had their National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, not “peddled falsehood.”
The NPP Chairman, Stephen Ayensu Ntim, April 4, had addressed the nation to debunk certain allegations made by the NDC Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, in the latter’s true state of the nation address.
The NDC on Monday, March 20, among other things, tagged the NPP as clueless and corrupt during its State of the Nation Address delivered by its National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
The NPP in response had described the event as a “propaganda-laced press conference” and a platform used to peddle “blatant falsehoods, unsubstantiated allegations, and unprovoked attacks at the persons of the President, the Vice President and the Government of the NPP”.
Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, Henry Boakye, described the actions of the NDC Chairman as “pedestrian” and justified the NPP’s response.
“Immediately the statement came, frankly the [NPP] National Chairman would not have responded but for the falsehood peddled by General Mosquito. I mean, for me I thought that what General Mosquito did was quite pedestrian. I mean, this is unsubstantiated presentation put out.
“This is not supposed to come from a National Chairman but for the [NPP] National Chairman, he was of the view that once the [NDC] National Chairman puts himself in this manner, and once such lies, falsehood and once such mischievous is being put out by a National Chairman of a ruling party, a seasoned politician like Mr. Asiedu Nketia, I mean, we must respond to some of these lies that were peddled,” he said.
