Allotey Jacobs descends on think-tanks; calls them tricksters
The Central Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has described think-tanks in the country as “political and intellectual tricksters”.
Allotey Jacobs alleged that members of these think-tanks are all top-most people in the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), who do not want any good for the nation.
The “educated fisherman” was reacting to the report by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) that seven out of 10 Ghanaians believe Ghana is retrogressing. CDD-Ghana in its pre-election survey conducted reveals seven out of 10 Ghanaians says the government is steering the country in the wrong direction.
The NDC Regional Chairman told Onua FM’s Yen Sempa that “CDD has always been a political wing of the NPP just like the IEA. They are all NPP intellectuals who come with camouflage faces but they are spokespersons for the NPP”. Mr. Allotey Jacobs said: “CDD, IEA, IMANI are wolves in sheep skin and we know them. They think they are fooling Ghanaians and we will expose them at the right time”.
