The chairman of the Progressive People's Party has accused the president of running a 'family and friends' government, following the appointments of new ministers and other government officials.
According to a report by Citi FM, the national chairman of the party, Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond was addressing a press conference on Monday, when he criticized the NPP government's failure to initiate an all-inclusive administration as it promised during the 2016 election campaign period.
"We the PPP are increasingly surprised that the change in government from NDC to NPP seems to repeat mere changes to personalities occupying high offices and positions of trust in our land and not change in the substantial matters of reorientation.”
How does a strictly partisan NPP local government ensure that all Ghanaians get the opportunity to participate in it?" he asked.
The PPP chairman further suggested that the policies outlined by the government would only serve to slow the developmental pace of the country.
Meanwhile, the PPP have disclosed that they are ready to merge with other political parties to establish a strong third political force in the country.
According to Dr Brew-Hammond, there were talks already with other political parties about a possible merger that will create a formidable opposition to the ruling party.
"It is only by bringing forces together that the dominance of the NPP and NDC duopoly can be broken… The PPP and other political parties would want to stand together now, united to offer disciplined, objective opposition and prove to the people that there is a better choice out there," Dr. Brew-Hammond added.
