Shush yourself and build factories you promised – Apaak to Gabby

Dr Clement Apaak, Builsa South MP, has descended heavily on Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko for asking former President John Mahama to shush on economy issues over looming VAT hike.

In Dr Apaak’s view, no NPP front liner has any moral rights to criticise former President John Mahama and the opposition NDC on their opinion on the proposed VAT increase as they have failed woefully in their promises to Ghanaians.

“Gabby says what? Your Uncle NADAA (Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo) and his side kick (Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia) said they will not borrow, yet have borrowed so much with nothing to show for it!

“He said he will fight corruption but has become a clearing agent and a facilitator, view #Number12! Has any dam been constructed, has any factory been established, has any constituency received one million dollars?”, a portion of his post on Facebook read.

He slammed the ruling party, particularly the nephew of President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Otchere Darko, adding that, “Your Uncle and his side kick said they will move Ghana from taxation to productivity, yeah, GUTA agreed, AGI agreed, Importers and Exporters agreed, Bankers and Telcos agreed, the Asante Business Association agreed. You got power and you are doing the direct opposite, they are complaining. What do you do, you decide to impose more taxes in the coming days and you say JM (John Mahama) should what?”

He cautioned them against their “reckless” approach to managing the affairs of the country reminding them of the advice former president J.A. Kufuor gave them at the recent Delegates Conference in Koforidua that “power can corrupt, and power is tricky!”

“Gabby says what? Your Uncle NADAA and his side kick said they will not borrow, yet have borrowed so much with nothing to show for it!

Has any dam been constructed, has any factory been established, has any constituency received one million dollars?

You got power and you are doing the direct opposite, they are complaining. What do you do, you decide to impose more taxes in the coming days and you say JM should what?

“Why have you not responded to all these groups? What impunity! Tell me anything fundamentally new your Uncle and your NPP has to show! All you know is to rebrand, relaunch and recommission. Your Uncle appointments, in consultation with your good self, as many believe, 110 ministers, 988 Presidential Staffers, Several CEOs and their bus loads of deputies, and a staggering numbers of personal aides and assistants, and you say what?

“Why should Ghanaians tighten their belts by enduring tax increases when you and your posse are feeding fat at the expense of the tax payer? So much for prudent management and fighting corruption! So much for protecting the public purse! As former President Kuffour said at your recent event in Koforidua, power can corrupt, power is tricky! Keep dreaming!”
