Attacks on president Mills are worrying




Nana Akomea, Communications Director of the opposition NPP and MP for Okaikoi South said President Mills feels constraint and that, attacks on him by his own party people are worrying and this shows “there is a fundamental no confidence in the NDC. They themselves don’t believe in the “Better Ghana Agenda” including former president Rawlings”.

He cited numerous attacks the president had to deal with from former president Rawlings and Spio-Garbrah, who yesterday said, the government of the day is sick and don’t seem to have a solution to the disunity in the NDC party.

According to Nana Akomea, “many people in the NDC strongly believe that the NDC under Mills is not performing. Rawlings said the government is not competent with foot soldiers seizing toilets and other public facilities everywhere”.
He asked, “what testimony do you need again? There is a general dissatisfaction among the populace with graduate unemployment on the increase with as many as 1,000 of them threatening to go on demonstration”.
He gave a story of how he heard on the streets of Chorkor, a suburb of Accra young girls singing, “if Atta Mills no the do you well, (clapping pa pa pa) away”.  

Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Information agreed that president Mills has been criticized over the past two years. He stated, “President Mills will go down in the history books as the most criticized and attacked presidents” but was quick to add that, “he will also go down as one of the best performed presidents in Ghana’s history”.

He said, president Mills is a man of integrity, honest and the opposition parties even attest to that and also the fact that he is not corrupt. “The president will stay focus and will carve for himself what gold and diamond cannot buy. President Mills is his own man, reliable and cannot be manipulated as people thought”, he added.

He said the criticisms of president Mills did not start today, “it started in his first week in office. Even before president Mills went to the Exams hall to write his name and index number, he was already marked a Grade F”.

He mentioned the many projects executed by president Mills across the country in just two years into his administration to include, a reduction in inflation from over 18% in 2008 to a single digit inflation, a reduction in the importation of rice by $120million, 574 projects alone in the Brong-Ahafo Region, two new universities, free school uniforms, increase in capitation grants among many other social interventions.

According to him, the social interventions by the NPP started in 2004, four years into their administration and so was surprised by their behavior towards the Mills administration.
