A segment of today’s NewsFile featured the NDC’s aspiring member of Parliament for Abura Asebu Kwamankese (AAK), Mr. Felix Kwakye Ofosu, an ardent communicator and Mr. Pius Enam Hadzide of the NPP, who have both experienced the deputy ministerial portfolio.
Shortly into the discussion, Lawyer Samson Lardi Anyenini, the host of the programme, did a fact-checking of claims made during the week by President Akufo-Addo that the GreenBook, which partly catalogues some of the infrastructural projects executed by the Mills-Mahama regime, was only replete with “fantasy projects” and artistic impressions that do not exist on the ground.
Former President John Dramani Mahama, also in a rebuttal, asked those who doubt the existence of the infrastructural projects catalogued in the GreenBook to visit the project locations to fact-check for themselves.
The NDC also used its weekly meet the press to address same topic through Mr. Felix Kwakye Ofosu.
Listeners and viewers of today’s NewsFile programme could, however, not believe how the deputy minister for Information, Mr. Hadzide could not withstand the fact-checking and cross-examinations by the host of the programme as well as fellow debator, Mr. Kwakye Ofosu.
The discussion, which had over one thousand live viewers on Facebook alone, quickly extended to social media with many viewers and commentators scolding the deputy minister, Pius Hadzide for his lack of fact on the programme.
Deputy Information Minister Pius Hadzide does know understand what an ‘Artistic Impression’ is. He actually suggests that @NAkufoAddo doesn’t either and his claim that the GreenBook is full of fantasy projects is because of that. ????????????— S. Xoese Dogbe (@StanDogbe) June 13, 2020

Why is Pius not picking Nana Addo's calls? #Newsfile— NanaYaa Prempeh (@PrempehNanayaa) June 13, 2020
#Newsfile is the one platform you can’t get away with propaganda on. You either back your claims with facts or you’ll be found out like Pius Enam Hadzide this morning. We must do our politics devoid of blatant propaganda and untruths.— Nii Adamah Sackey, Esq (@dessack) June 13, 2020
Pius was dismantle, restructured and realign with the conscience of humanity. @Pius, we the Ewes are smart and intelligent, we are appalled by your horrific display on newsfile. Sad spectacle. pic.twitter.com/wiifqkYpx8— Akpari Richard (@itsRichard_GH) June 13, 2020
