The Imani Africa president, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe, has expressed gratitude toward President Nana Akufo-Addo for offending common society associations when he met columnists at the Jubliee House on Wednesday, 19 December 2018.
Amid the question and answer session, President Akufo-Addo said a ton of the claims and reactions flung at him and his legislature by CSOs and the Minority, needed substance.
Reacting to that comment he stated that:
‘John Mahama said we were purposeless lamentators. By the time he realised, he could only say he suffered from the paradox of exposure. He has since been remorseful. You, Nana President, we were the ones keeping the NDC government on its toes when you had all your internal fights for nearly two years when you were in opposition. We met you to brief you about the state of affairs at your invitation. Today, we are only saying and doing what we did under the NDC and you say we are worse than what you used to admire and quote copiously from? So, all CSOs and think tanks are worrying you, and by extension, emboldening your ministers and party people to deal with us ruthlessly huh, as many are doing huh?
I never thought you could actually INSULT US. Mr. President, I can only say thank you.’
