Deputy Communications Director of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anthony Karbo, has called on President John Mahama to call his ‘dogs’ [communication team members] to order.
He said the president must know the National Democratic Congress (NDC) don’t have the monopoly over bad language “because some of us at the other side of the political divide can also spill venom at the presidency”.
Karbo outrage stems from criticisms of the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo by a communications team member of the NDC for doubting the cost of the ongoing Kasoa interchange.
The NPP leader at the 2nd Aliu Mahama Memorial Lectures called on President Mahama to take a second look at the amount involved.
In Akufo-Addo’s estimation, the estimated $172 million for the Kasoa interchange has been bloated.
But Samuel George Nettey while discussing the issue on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday said the NPP leader has been “very disrespectful of the president”.
“Grandpa” as he [Sam] continuously called Nana Addo “is giving us his grandchildren the opportunity to talk him down”.
Sam George however blamed Akufo-Addo’s gaffe on key national issues on his handlers for opening him [Nana] up for public criticisms.
This comment by the NDC man did not go down well with Anthony Karbo who responded in equal measure.
“If the President of the Republic of Ghana wants to salvage the little respect he has left, he must call these dogs to order,” he exclaimed.
Anthony Karbo said if the caveat given is not adhered to, they will all descend into the gutters.
