A private legal practitioner and a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Godwin Edudzi Tameklo has accused the Akufo-Addo administration of recklessness.
He said Ghanaians made a generational mistake of voting for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
“This is the most resourced government but what do they have to show for? They are in China begging for debt forgiveness.
“The most reckless government we have seen since 1992,” he said on the Big Issue on TV3 Monday, March 27 while responding to a comment by a member of the NPP communication team Kofi Tontoh who said that the NDC is not a credible and organized alternative.
The discussion was on the approval of the ministerial nominees.
Tontoh stated that the way the NDC and its Minority Leadership in Parliament have conducted themselves does not make them fit as a credible alternative.
