The Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahene, has described Prof. Ransford Gyampo’s opinion on Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Maafo’s recent statement on public sector employment in a write-up posted on his Facebook wall, as myopic and opinionated.
The Deputy scribe of the NPP, said, the political science lecturer has exposed himself to public ridicule and contempt.
He said, the lecturer dealt with the statement by the senior minister wearing his thick political lenses. “It is his right to
express his personal opinion on national issues, but he must do that with his political lenses off and should not force his personal myopic opinion on Ghanaians,” he stated.
Prof Gyampo, in a recent Facebook write-up, expressed his disagreement with portions of the senior minister’s statement. Mr Osafo Maafo, in his statement, said that if he had his way, he would retrench some public servants. He further stated that the public service is over bloated hence the decision to freeze government’s public sector
The political science lecturer, questioned why the senior minister criticised the previous administration over the same thing his government is doing now.
