GABBY ASARE Otchere-Darko, a formidable power broker in the current government administration is locked in a war of words over powdered milk with Franklin Cudjoe. the Executive Director of Policy think tank IMANI.
Gabby had described Franklin Cudjoe as an agent using every opportunity to make his government look bad.
Apparently, Gabby, a Nephew of President Akufo-Addo did not take kindly to a recent post by Franklin Cudjoe that claimed prices of goods and services are escalating outrageously under the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP). Apparently, Mr. Cudjoe had gone to a suburb of Accra to buy the powdered milk NIDO, only to be slapped with an astronomical price.
Mr. Cudjoe took to social media to express his dissatisfaction. “I wonder why Kwabenya Citydla will price their Nido Forgrow at 34.99 while some other traditional market some alleged to have visited, price theirs at 26 cedis. Obviously, there us market segmentation. Citydia doesn’t offer NIDO in the open and on stall prone to the elements. It may well be fake people are buying too,” Franklin wrote.
Gabby quickly responded to him casting aspersions at the post and finally topping it up with the following post: “Don’t bash Franklin over the price of NIDO. He has every right as a citizen to use or create every opportunity to make this Govt. look bad. Democracy works!”
Franklin Cudjoe’s observation is a reflection of countless hints by consumers that prices of goods and services are going through the roofs.
The government had offered reasons such as the pressure filled exchange rates and the price of crude oil on the he international market.
