Deputy Information Minister, Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has expressed that accusations made by parliament's Minority that the President Akufo-Addo led government administration is vindictive are baseless.
Speaking on Joy FM's Super Morning Show, a show YEN.com.gh monitored, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah addressed accusations from parliament's Minority that the current government is a vindictive one.
Parliament's Minority has previously alleged that the continuous dismissal of government officials who are not associated with the current administration is a sign that the Akufo-Addo-led administration is a vindictive one.
Responding to the accusations, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency, expressed that the Minority's claim is a narrative that is not supported by facts.

He stated that in order to substantiate the Minority's claims, more data will be needed.
"...I think it's important to get some in that how many people is he talking about, is it 4, or 304? This number he's talking about, are these political appointments that every President will literally change?
Because when a president comes to power he will obviously appoint a new IGP, he will obviously appoint a new Chief of Defense Staff (CDS). So are these political appointments that change withe the cycle. If they are, then if you look at the number, that fact does not support the narrative," he said.
