New Patriot Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central known for speaking his mind has said the government is massaging the truth regarding the existence of power outages known as “Dumsor”, TheNewsGH.com has filed.
According to him, the government “has to be straightforward, honest and sincere to Ghanaians” and tell them the truth, accusing Energy Minister Mr John Peter Amewu and his Deputy in charge of power of contradictions.
He called on those who criticized the previous NDC government over Dumsor not to shy away from doing same to the current government.
“We have to be straightforward, honest and sincere to Ghanaians and tell them that this is the challenge, and we are going to solve it. My question is that, if you criticize NDC in 2016, as politicians and government, we have to line up all the failures of NDC and what we condemned, and take them one by one and solve them. That makes you a better government. But if you also come and the same problem you condemned to win election, you can’t solve it, then even the technical people will even say politicians are not to be believed” he said.
The outspoken and known no-nonsense MP said the government must not make excuses for the problem.
“To say it is a financial challenge, is no excuse. We have to solve the problem because it was part of our campaign promises, and we’ve been able to stabilize it for two years, so however we did it, we have to continue to sustain it. There is no excuse for us”. He stressed.
