Report by Akpeleasi Flora- 30/03/2024

In a recent turn of political discourse, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been rebuked for its assertion that President Akufo-Addo has failed the Ashanti Region. This condemnation comes from Mr. Simon Osei-Mensah, the Ashanti Regional Minister, who labeled the claim as “disgraceful.”

Speaking fervently on the matter, Osei-Mensah expressed strong disagreement with the NDC’s accusation. He emphasized that such statements were not only baseless but also demeaning to the progress made within the Ashanti Region under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.

The Ashanti Regional Minister highlighted several achievements and initiatives undertaken by the Akufo-Addo administration in the region. These include infrastructural developments, improvements in healthcare facilities, and initiatives to boost the region’s economic growth.

Furthermore, Osei-Mensah pointed out that the Akufo-Addo government had consistently demonstrated its commitment to addressing the needs and concerns of the Ashanti Region. He urged the NDC to refrain from making unfounded allegations and instead focus on constructive engagement in political discourse.

The criticism from the NDC comes amidst heightened political tensions in Ghana, with both major parties vying for support ahead of the upcoming elections. However, Osei-Mensah’s swift rebuttal underscores the fervent defense of the Akufo-Addo administration’s record in the Ashanti Region.

Political analysts suggest that such exchanges are likely to intensify in the run-up to the elections as parties seek to sway public opinion in their favor. However, the importance of factual accuracy and constructive dialogue remains paramount in ensuring a healthy democratic process.

In conclusion, Osei-Mensah’s denunciation of the NDC’s accusation against President Akufo-Addo serves as a reminder of the need for responsible political discourse. While differing viewpoints are inevitable in a democratic society, it is imperative that they are based on facts and contribute to meaningful debate rather than fostering division or spreading misinformation.
