The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Berekum East in the Bono Ahafo Region, Dr. Kwabena Twum Nuamah, is calling on President John Mahama to sack the Deputy Minister for Communication, Victoria Hammah, for “displaying immaturity and incompetence”.

According to Dr. Nuamah, Ms. Victoria Hammah has continuously committed “unpardonable mistakes” that should not be entertained by the president.

Ms. Hammah recently was caught on camera complaining before her audience about the content of a speech she read, at the launch of a campaign against Cyber Crime in Ghana.

She claimed the speech she was given was not the one she had edited earlier, and resorted to reading “from her mind”.

The Deputy Minister is also reported to have made a similar goof at the launch of the Expresso Ghana ACE Fibre Cable days ago, where she said before her audience that, there was a typographical error in her speech and blamed it on her aide.

But speaking on Adom FM’s “Dwaso Nsem” morning show on Friday, Dr. Kwabena Twum Nuamah noted that for a deputy minister to expose herself in front of such audience, is inexcusable.

“A country like Ghana that has produced the first African, Kofi Annan as the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations, we cannot be subjected to have a person of such low level of standard as a minister,” Dr. Nuamah asserted.

He stated that the deputy minister was probably not taken through any orientation after her appointment, resulting in the series of errors she had committed in public.

Play the video attached, to watch how the frustrated minister manages to get an applause from her audience, for not being able to find her “edited speech” and was compelled to speak from her “mind”.
