Fifi Kwetey accuses media of cover-up over NPP’s ‘lies’

The Member of Parliament for Ketu South Constituency, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, says the media have been “a bit charitable” to the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) government over the latter’s management of the economy. According to him, there is gross lack of credibility in the administration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and that has to be exposed. “[But] you look on and you keep treating them with kids’ gloves,” he told the journalists at the DF Annan Auditorium in Parliament on Wednesday. He was speaking at the Minority’s forum on the state of the country’s economy. The main speaker at the forum was Cassiel Ato Forson, a former Deputy Minister of Finance and the Ranking Member of the Parliament’s Finance Committee. Having served as a Deputy Finance Minister, precisely under late former president John Evans Atta Mills, Mr Kwetey said the Akufo-Addo-led government is full of “deception”. He claims the government has failed to exhibit courage in the management of the economy and that is having a negative effect on the general health of the sector. “We need to go back to truth,” he stressed. “We need to go back to credibility.” He said the NPP government made Ghanaians believe that they inherited an economy that was absolutely in a mess. On the contrary, he emphasized, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration put the economy on a good footing before losing power. Source:|Ghana]]>
