Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has said political parties organizing press conferences about the state of the economy and largely the nation is of no use.
According to him an NPP or NDC press conference will not show Ghanaians how difficult or easy the economy is.
“These press conferences does not end with anything beneficial . . . Is it a press conference that is going to tell us that many people can’t buy Kenkey and fish? Is it a press conference that is going to show us the price of fuel at a Filling station?” he said.
He said presenting ‘The True State of the Nation Address’ is nothing new as even the smaller political party’s do organize some.
“Everyone in this country know the state of the nation, everyone knows whether there is an improvement in their lives or not, press conferences will not show us the true state of our lives . . . if the political parties will continue with that, we are watching you,” Kwesi Pratt said on Peace FM’s ‘kokrokoo’ programme.
NPP Responds To NDC’s Press Conference
The leadership of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken notice of a propaganda-laced press conference of the NDC, addressed by Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the party’s National Chairman, on Monday, March 20, 2023, which was mischievously described as an address on the so called ‘true state of the nation’.
According to the NPP, the NDC turned the press conference into a campaign platform, peddling blatant falsehoods, unsubstantiated allegations, and unprovoked attacks at the persons of the President, the Vice President and the Government of the NPP.
