A former ambassador of Ghana to Dubai, Daniel Osei , has “attacked” former deputy sports minister, Joseph Yamin.
According to ambassador Osei, Yamin is a shallow thinker, who fails to appreciate the severity of some comments.
“Yamin is not deep”, he said.
He expressed his surprise at the statement attributed to Yamin to the effect that the rape case at Bantama in the Ashanti region could be blamed on the Free SHS policy introduced by the government.
His comments sparked a debate on social media, with many condemning his words.
“I’m not too surprised he’ll say this, but the fact still remains that the cheap propaganda won’t help us. We must disabuse our minds from the insults and those kind of propaganda”, he further added.
The former diplomat again stated that a similar behavior contributed to the defeat of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 polls.
Sharing his opinions on Kasapa FM with the host, Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Wednesday 20th December 2017, he added that there was the need for party members to present the party as a formidable opposition side that would be the voice of the voiceless.
“It will be recalled that this same behaviour caused our downfall;
It’s those characters that Mahama has surrounded himself with, like Yamin, Appiah Stadium and the rest who caused our defeat, because Ghanaians saw that we were not serious”, he again stated.
Ghanaians, he finally said, are interested in concise and dispassionate commentary, as against hollow arguments.
