A former New Patriotic Party(NPP) Member of Parliament(MP) for Ejisu and aspiring regional chairman, Kwabena  Owusu  Aduomi has said emphatically that he cannot defend the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo for certain statements he made during the campaign ahead of the 2016 general elections.

 

According to him, it’s only fair that the president defends his own statements.
 

 

On Oyerepa television in Kumasi, the regional chairman hopeful told the host of the morning show: 

“You’ll do me no good by asking me to defend statements and comments I didn’t make. It’s Akufo-Addo who said Ghanaians are starving in the abundance of money, I didn’t say that. And so let him defend that when you meet him,- I can’t do that for him. Of course there’s enough money in the country but it’s about how you manage it, he said emphatically.

Speaking on the economy, the former MP said he has no basis to defend the economy and can only leave that the ‘country’s economic managers’.

“I’m not an economist so I can’t defend that. On what basis will I even the economic situation in the country.? If you’re taking about the current hardship in the country, then I’ll say yes, i hear people complain every day. We all feel the pants of hardship. However, if the economists claim they’ve managed the economy well, that’s up to them. But for Kofi Job, I won’t even survive, he added.
