Minority Chief Whip Mohammed –Mubarak Muntaka has taken a swipe at the President Nana Akufo-Addo’s advisers for advising him to interact with the media six months into his four year mandate. “If I were him I will have waited after a year”.

He noted that most of the promises given by the ruling New Patriotic Party government will have started yielding results.

“When they have gotten power, they are still talking as if they are on a camping platform they have even not kick started the engine not only to start moving they are still at one place”, he said.

And added that all former Presidents have had their first media encounter after a year in office, President Akufo-Addo wants to show novelty, but  “when you have very little to tell or nothing to say, apart  from you taking salary and likewise your Ministers”.

“Go and check most of the corporate boards and agencies, national health insurance, we had to refuse taking the formula before they rush to reconstitute the board. Most of the boards have not be constituted, even government, he could not constitute it six month”.

Six month in officer, the NPP government is panicking just thinking of replacement, thinking of witch-hunting,  how much they can pay their debt in the 2016 election and sort out their friends who helped them in the election”, he said .

On the President’s fight against corruption, the Asawase law maker noted that the President was not doing much in his promise to fight against corruption, and gave an example of government inability to give a break down on the amount of money that was spent fighting the army worm invasion.

He further gave indication that the Minority will address the media on Thursday touching on issues relating to the President’s first media encounter.
