‘President Doesn’t Support Comments’

Mr Felix Ofosu kwakye -Deputy Minister for Information and Media RelationsPresident John  Mahama does not support his National Security Adviser’s outburst  against public sector workers, Deputy Information and Media Relations Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has stated.

The main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) claimed the President’s failure to condemn Nunoo-Mensah’s comments, betrays his subtle endorsement of the opprobrium.

The party also said the President’s nodding at the comments, was proof that he endorsed his Security Advisor’s outburst against Organised Labour.

Mr. Kwakye Ofosu, however, explaind on Monday that President Mahama cannot be said to have endorsed Nunoo- Mensah’s comments merely because he did not condemn the outburst.

Brig. Nunoo-Mensah vented his spleen at a public event attended by President Mahama in Accra at the weekend.
He described Organised Labour as “unpatriotic” and “undisciplined”.

According to him, if Organised Labour found the country “too hot”, they should just “get out”. He has taken a lot of flak for his comments with the NPP calling for his dismissal. Source: Ghanaweb
