A pressure group, Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG), has said it will be forced to break ranks and respond, in equal measure, to provocations from the Head of Policy, Evaluation and Oversight Unit at the Office of the President, Dr.
The group in a press statement described recent comments by Dr.
Aidoo on Accra-based radio station, Radio Gold
, as “hubris and mundane” after the latter alluded the leadership of the NPP objects to the policy direction of the Mills-Mahama government because of an unconducive atmosphere for cocaine trade.
“It will be recalled that in the Tuesday July 10, 2012 edition of 60 Minutes (a Segment of Radio Gold’s morning show), Dr.
Tony Aidoo in his usual vituperative manner, shamelessly stated that the “flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), “Nana Akufo-Addo and members of the opposition party keep whining about Mills’ “Better Ghana” having turned into a “Bitter Ghana” simply because the current business environment is not conducive for trading in cocaine as hubris and mundane.”
The group has thus called on the National Chief Imam, the Ghana Peace Council, Christian Council, Pentecostal Council and others to “show leadership in the case at hand or risk losing the co- operation of all who have restrained themselves in the face of blatant provocation from Dr.
Tony Aidoo and his likes.”
According to them, Dr Aidoo’s comments constitute “a breach of the unwritten code of decent language ahead of the 2012 elections”.
AFAG has also challenged Dr Aidoo to make utterances that will “enrich public discourse in generating sound policies which will help alleviate the suffering of the Ghanaian taxpayer.”
“Finally AFAG wishes to remind the Head of Policy and Evaluation that the circumstance under which cocaine turned into soda under his government has still not been resolved.
Although the courts have discharged and acquitted DSP Mawuenyegah Tehoda, the fact still remains, that the whereabouts of the cocaine is still unknown,” they concluded.
