“Sometimes we must eschew politics into issues of international standards and give credit where it is due”, he admonished politicians on the national television.
Former Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Ofosu Kwakye ridiculed the President’s speech as the poorest as compared to others under the Fourth Republican regime.
