“If we complain and the President says we are short-sighted then with all due respect to the President, if we are short-sighted, his vision suffers impairment, glaucoma in one eye and cataract in one eye; otherwise he won’t say what he said to us. Should a leader talk like this to his people? We all have foul mouth but because of civility we intend to speak well in public. When offered the opportunity to respond to issues which people lack clarity on, explain to them for them a better understanding why you travel a lot but don’t insult them.
“No wonder that his Ministers and Communicators insult people. This government said they were going to remove schools under trees and that’s a good decision but how can we keep quiet when the same 2 units of classrooms and kindergarten which cost GH¢85,000 during Kufuor’s era, NDC within 2 years into office gave similar contract to the tune of Gh¢350,000. I can’t say it is wrong for President Mahama to travel but he is being measured in the same way he measured former President Kufuor. Now you are suffering the same fate but Kufuor didn’t travel to commission a stadium; such travelling does not yield any results and this is what we are telling him to stop,” he chided.
