New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand Kennedy Agyapong has taken swipe at former President John Mahama for not appointing family members to serve in his government.
According to him, friends and family members appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to serve in his government are more educated than members of Mahama.
The vociferous MP’s comments come at the back of Mahama, who has described the government as ‘super incompetent’.
He said the president has loaded his government with his relatives and tries to justify his every decision, although he criticised same when in opposition.
At the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) unity walk in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Rgion on Saturday, 5 May 2018, Mahama said: “One of the tags they put on us very successfully was that we were an incompetent government. I must say if you look at what this government has done so far in the one year three months, if that is what they call competence, I call it super incompetence, and, so, the government should be up and doing.”
But Kennedy Agyapong in rebuttal said Mahama could not appoint his family into government because they are less educated.
“It is not Akufo-Addo’s fault that his family members are more educated than Mahama’s family members. They are very qualified for the position they are occupying,” he added.
