- He added that contrary to Mahama's claims, the current government has fully fumigated 678 out of 700 Senior High Schools
The minister of information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has cautioned former president John Mahama against passing cynical comments about the Akufo-Addo administration.
Addressing the press on Monday, November 5, 2018, he added such comments about social intervention policies being implemented by the government are uncalled for.
He went ahead to say that it will be best if Mahama sticks to the facts, in the interest of the nation.

“The administration thereby encourages the former President that when it comes to state and national matters, it will be best if he speaks in the national interest, and speak to facts,” he stated.
Nkrumah was reacting to recent claims by Mahama that he had encountered many students who have complained about how bed bugs have infested their dormitories.
Mahama explained it was as a result of congestion in the dormitories as a result of the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme.
Nkrumah accused the former president of working against government’s Free SHS programme, emphasizing the latter’s subtle attempts at ‘demonizing’ the project at the least opportunity.
He added that the government has fumigated 678 out of 700 public SHSs to get rid of bedbugs and other insects.
According to the minister, the erstwhile Mahama administration did not record any form of fumigation exercise in Senior High Schools but have deliberately decided to overlook the feats of the Akufo-Addo administration.
