The Director of Communications of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah, has told Nana Ohene Ntow, a former General Secretary of the NPP who is now an advisor to Independent Presidential Candidate Alan Kyerematen to be mindful of his utterances against the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia Bawumia and the NPP government.

Mr Ahiagbah said the NPP respects Ohene Ntow’s candidate Mr Kyerematen and would not speak roughly against him.

Thsi was after he noted that in a recent appearance on Peace FM’s Kokroko show, Nana Ohene Ntow asserted that major institutions under this government are more corrupt than previous administrations, a comment Mr Ahiagbah said is subjective.

To him, allegations of corruption are not conclusive, as the law has the final say in such matters.

He also observed that Nana Ohene Ntow’s suggestion that digitalization is not the entire economy can be pardoned. However, it is widely recognized that digitalization is a significant driver of economic growth and prosperity today.

In a post on his X platform, he said “In a recent appearance on Peace FM’s Kokroko show, the former general secretary and ex-member of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Ohene Ntow, made some comments about Dr. Bawumia that need to be corrected: 1. Dr. Bawumia’s competence and ability to effectively manage Ghana’s economy as president remain unquestioned.

“The current economic challenges, which may have influenced Nana Ohene Ntow’s remarks, are primarily due to external factors such as COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine War and do not accurately reflect Bawumia’s capabilities. 2. It would be beneficial for Nana Ohene-Ntow to revisit economic data from 2017, 2018, and 2019, when the economy was growing at an average of 7% before the impact of COVID-19.

“This would provide a more accurate assessment of the current government’s economic management record. 3. Nana Ohene Ntow’s assertion that major institutions under this government are more corrupt than previous administrations is subjective. Allegations of corruption are not conclusive, as the law has the final say in such matters. 

“Nana Ohene Ntow’s suggestion that digitalization is not the entire economy can be pardoned. However, it is widely recognized that digitalization is a significant driver of economic growth and prosperity today. 5. Nana Ohene-Ntow supports Alan Kyerematen, whom we respect and would not want to speak roughly about his candidacy or campaign.”
