Mensah Thompson, the Executive Director of the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), characterized the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) selection of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as a skewering of Ghanaians’ intelligence.
He feels that the shortcomings of the current NPP administration—such as the shut down of the Renal Unit at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital—show the Vice President’s ineptitude as a leader.
Mensah Thompson said that the current government doesn’t deserve to be termed a government because it is unable to offer the necessary support for the public in an interview with Citi News that 1Family Radio heard.
“If all manner of things are going on in Korle Bu unchecked and they are failing, and the same government that watches on for the system to fail is not providing the needed support and intervention to make sure that you bring it back to life, then you don’t deserve to be called a government,’’ he noted.
“You don’t deserve it, and that is why I am saying that it is an insult for the NPP to go to the polls and bring Bawumia to us as a candidate. It is an insult to the intelligence of Ghanaians,’’ he added.
