Credible intelligence available to this paper indicates that the main opposition NDC has resorted to character assassination to tame the articulate and vociferous Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enam Hadzide who they claim has become a torn in the flesh of the NDC.
A text message from the Communications Bureau of the NDC obstensibly to NDC communications platform and labeled “very crucial” which was intercepted by this paper reads; “Deputy Info Minister Pius Enam Hadzide must be tamed. He has become the arrowhead of the Oppong Nkrumah lead MoI. Don’t spare him. These guys know what they are doing. Pius is a womanizer, He is a fraudster. Let’s hang the Australia Visa Scandal around his neck whether guilty or not. This is an instruction please!”
The text message continues; “let’s single out Oko Boye and praise him for his objectivity. This would make us sound fair and credible”
It is becoming increasingly clear that the NDC and its operatives are following this instruction to the latter.
This paper has observed that NDC communicators anytime they are confronted by the Hon Deputy Minister bring up the so called visa scandal even if it was not being discussed.
Not long ago the former Minister for Youth and Sports and law maker for the Odododiodio constituency abused the Deputy Minister during a live discussion program on JoyNews TV much to the shock of all.
Not longer ago another law maker Hon Samuel Jabanetey rained insults and curses on Hon Hadzide for exposing what he claimed were misinformation being peddled by the former GNPC boss Alex Mould on Okay FM.
Communicators of the NDC including the likes of Hon Sam George, Hon Suhiyini and co have all without any provocation and without any relevance to the matters under discussion brought in the alleged scandal with the view to either distract the Deputy Minister, make him angry or to attack his credibility.
This paper has noticed that Hon Pius Enam Hadzide remains focused and resolute about taking the fight to the NDC is bent and propagating the good works of this government and exposing the ills of the past.
When contacted for his comments, the respectful and affable Deputy Minister had this to say “ Hmmm, it’s true that they have plotted against me. Some friends from there who know my character continue to call and advise me to slow down. You are making several enemies and we are afraid for you. Your name keeps coming up even before the old man” there are still some decent people even within the NDC and they always warn but I tell them that I have a job to do and I will continue to do it diligently without fear or favor. They know I did nothing wrong in that alleged scandal they know it. But they think they can use that to intimidate me. They lie” he added.
Pius Enam Hadzide and investigated and cleared of any wrongdoing in the alleged Australia Visa Scandal and has since been at post as Deputy Minister of Information where he appears to be doing a great job propagating about government policies and projects and also exposing the ills of the past NDC administration.
