Once again, the Office of Nana Akufo-Addo has been compelled to come out to dispel another blatant lie cooked and served by NDC kingpin, Alhaji Bature’s “newspaper”, the Al Hajj.
According to the story, titled, “Nana appoints Jake, Sir John as Chief of Staff and Deputy”, Nana Akufo-Addo has promised Jake Obetsebi Lamptey and Sir John the above mentioned positions when he becomes President in 2016, as compensation for their loss at the Tamale Delegates’ Conference of the New Patriotic Party, and has asked them to “start carrying themselves as Chief of Staff and deputy Chief of Staff in the making.”
The falsehood does not end there. The story also goes on to state that a list of ministerial appointees for Nana Addo’s government has been handed over to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to execute, should Nana Akufo-Addo not “get the opportunity to lead the NPP into government.”
It is clearly obvious that a major strategy of our political opponents still remains the same: to manufacture their own set of facts and disseminate same as gospel and expect the public to swallow it. It is all part of an elaborate plan which aims to create disaffection within the NPP and against Nana Akufo-Addo. Ghanaians know better.
We urge all Ghanaians to disregard, once again, another false story by the Al Hajj against Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP. The work of the media is not to manufacture lies to destroy people, even if those people are seen as political opponents of the publishers. There is more to political competition than that.
