The Communications Director for the 2012 New Patriotic Party (NPP) campaign team, Nana Akomea has said the party would investigate how a booklet purportedly listing the achievements of the first four years of the Kufour-regime came about.

Deputy Information Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa took the booklet, titled ‘Four-years of Positive Change, so far so good’, to Asempa FM studious on Wednesday from which he copiously quoted some of the projects the Kufour led government commissioned during its first four years in office.

Some NPP members have severally criticized President Mills who on his national tour commissioned several projects including boreholes and classroom blocks, a duty they regard should be the work of DCE’s and other government officials.

But Mr Ablakwa said the NPP had recorded in the book the commissioning of KVIPs and other projects as successes achieved by the Kufuor government while they dishonestly made mockery President Mills for commissioning boreholes and classroom blocks.

However, Nana Akomea who took his turn on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, show on Thursday to apparently respond to Mr Ablakwa’s comments, denied that the booklet Mr Ablakwa had was printed by the NPP.

He said the foreword in the book which is said to be written by the Dan Botwe cannot be the truth since he was not the Minister of Information as at that time.

Upon careful examination Nana Akomea said the pictures in the book appeared to have been ‘photo shopped’ maintaining that it was not a copy of the original book the NPP had printed.

He added that the NPP would investigate the matter to establish who was behind the publishing of the book.
