A former Presidential Advisor, Dr. Tony Aidoo has said that the New Patriotic Party has managed to dictate the conversation in the public with Free Senior High School despite the numerous corruption scandals of corruption under the administration.
He said unlike the previous government when corruption was the main issue of discussion in the build up to the 2016 elections, this government has manage to throw the cases of corruption into the bin.
Speaking on the Key Points, a program on Accra base TV3, Dr. Aidoo said “NPP has been remarkable in getting these matters obscure with the propagation of free SHS. The number of corruption cases that have characterised this government far outweigh the number that characterised previous administrations.
“To the extent that you are running a family and friends government, you are encouraging corruption” because they cannot correct themselves. This is shameful,” he stated further.
Dr. Tony Aidoo added that “The least Ghanaians expected is the president allowing the investigative bodies to investigate them and not to clear these people himself. But as I said they have been obscure by the propagation of the free SHS programme.”
At the same program, one member of the NPP’s communication, Nana Akomea said “That sentiment by Dr Tony Aidoo portrays Ghanaian electorate as ignorant. To the extent that they are not discussing corruption means it is not an issue to them. Nobody is manufacturing free SHS to obscure any thing.
“Corruption was a big issue for them under Mahama. It was the president who put his foot down to cancel PDS against the wish of the almighty America,” he added.
