NPP thinks governance is all about lying to keep power – Fiifi Kwetey

Former Member of Parliament for Ketu South South, Mr Fiifi Kwetey has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration of hiding the truth about state of the economy from Ghanaians.

He said the NPP believes that governance is all about deceiving the people in order to keep power.

Speaking on the New Day show on TV3 with Johnnie Hughes Wednesday September 28, the former Deputy Finance Minister said the government’s performance in managing the economy has been abysmal.

“Their whole mindset is how can we deceive the people in order to to keep power

“They believe that governance is about how much lies you can tell , how you can deceive people, how you can spin them,” he said.

Fifi Kwetey further said he fears for the future of Ghana.

In his view, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is only fixated on helping his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to break the 8-year electoral cycle but not to work to ameliorate the economic conditions of Ghanaians.

The aspiring General Secretary of the NDC said Ghana is being governed currently by a group of selfish individuals.

“The truth is that I fear for the future of this country, I worry for the future of this country. People look at it in terms of what is happening to the economy, the collapse of the economy, people look at it in terms of what is happening to the inability to do what has been promised in education, in health, in infrastructure and so on, I look at it it beyond that.

“I see a decadent soul of a country, I see a country whose soul is being bastardized by a group that I call very selfish, unpatriotic who care only about power,” he said.

He added “To think that a leader, almost approaching 8 years, in the midst of all these desperations, in the midst of the hopelessness, a future that is bleak, not just for our future but but also our children’s children, his obsession is that  ‘I want to break the 8’.

“That tells you this nation is really on the brink of what I call moral collapse.”
