Ex-President John Dramani Mahama has reffered to governing party’s reaction to the new remarks by the Catholic Bishops Conference as typical pomposity and arrogance of power from the NPP.
On Monday, November 8, the Catholic Bishops Conference at a whole gathering of the Association in Wa, condemned government over its inability to ensure the public purse is protected, adding that the governing party’s promise to safeguard the national kitty is a mirage. The Bishops likewise wailed over what they depicted as a total absence of sympathy from the government towards Ghanaians.
Responding to this, the Director of Communications of the NPP, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, contended that the reactions from the Bishops needed focus and clearness; and along these lines asked them to be explicit and provides some clarity on what they intend to communicate.
In a sharp reaction, whilst tending to a durbar of party loyalists at Ashaiman, as a feature of his two days visit through the Greater Accra Region, John Mahama blamed the NPP for being unwelcoming to reactions.
“In case they are saying Ghana is difficult, do the things that will make things more reasonable for individuals of Ghana. However, that is the thing that we call the arrogance of power. They said when the divine beings need to obliterate you, they first make you distraught. Since this is frenzy. The Catholic Bishops have spoken; what is your business holding a question and answer session against them? Acknowledge analysis in with a sense of sincere resolve”, the Ex-Ghanaian Leader said.
“NPP’s reaction to the Catholic Bishops is a demonstration of pomposity and frenzy”, Mahama noted.
