The National Democratic Congress’ Setting the Records Straight has called on flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party to disclose details of his CV (Curriculum Vitae) which are not clear.
Spokesperson for the propaganda machinery of the ruling government, Fifi Kwetey said the inconsistencies in Nana Addo’s CV must be addressed by the flagbearer as we head for the December polls.
“Why is it that unlike every other presidential candidate since 1992 and every leader of Ghana since Independence, Nana Addo’s CV does not show year by year detail of his progress through primary, secondary, and tertiary institution.
"Specifically, why is it so difficult to know where he was between 1958 when he finished secondary school and September 1964 when he entered the University of Ghana? By the way we have here a copy of Nana Addo’s CV full of gap and have here a detailed year by year CV of NPP’s Sheick I.C. Quaye so we can all see how complete a CV must be.
“The question is- what is Nana Akufo Addo hiding? Why has Nana Addo continued to hide from everybody the fact that he gained admission at Oxford University and was on record as pursuing in that institution, Political Science, Philosophy and Economics (PPE)? Ladies and gentlemen of the media, why has he deliberately left that important episode out of his CV? If Ghana cannot trust even his CV, how can Ghana entrust the destiny of 27million people into the hands of Nana AkufoAddo?
“We are bringing these important facts to the attention of Ghana. Leadership is all about TRUST and CREDIBILITY."
Titled “Why NDC Is Far More Credible Than NPP,” the Transport Minister also sought to punch holes in statements by the NPP flagbearer and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia calling on Ghanaians to reject the Elephant family in the upcoming elections.
“The NPP candidate lied on Dec 9, 2014 that the cost of the Kasoa interchange had been inflated. His own party’s Ranking Member for Roads and Transport, Hon Kofi OwusuAduomi, was compelled to set the records straight- an indication that he is so desperate that he will rather lie than verify the facts.
“On 29th February 2016, he lied again claiming that the Ridge Hospital project was inflated by $142m, a claim that Crown Agents who did the VFM audit completely discount.
“At the same event, he peddled another untruth claiming that the Salaga district hospital had been abandoned when in fact the hospital had reached lintel level. There are so many of such deliberate distortions and outright lies of Nana Addo that we can mention.”
