Deputy Chief of Staff Samuel Abu Jinapor has taken on former Member of Parliament (MP) for Zebilla John Ndebugri over his recent comments seeking to suggest the Akufo-Addo government is only engaging the services of Akans.
He described his comments as untruths to score cheap political points for the NDC which he is supporting in such a manner.
The private legal practitioner a week ago at a Health Walk organized by the National Democratic Congress(NDC) claimed that when you go to the seat of government which is the Jubilee House, it would be hard put to find a Nuhu, Ibrahim, Abugre or Akagre in the Presidency unless one went to the Mamprusi Man’s section.
Many have condemned the utterances made by Mr Ndebugri who professes to be a member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Cutting him to size on the comments, Abu Jinapor said he expected someone of his caliber to know better than resort to making such comments.
“It is a downright shame to see someone who has served as an MP, in the past, resort to tribalism to score cheap political points for the NDC in such a manner. Especially when his effusions are palpable untruths”, he said.
Giving facts about persons of northern extraction working with the Presidency to counter the purported lies by Ndebugri, he stated“For the avoidance of doubt, there is a Nuhu in the heart of the President’s office. Hajia Hamida Nuhu is the Assistant Secretary to the President – Legal and Administration. Ms Nuhu is a Waala from Wa in the Upper West Region.
Also at the heart of the President’s core team is Fawaz Aliu who is Assistant Secretary to the President – Foreign Relations. One can also count Ms Fatimatu Abubakr who is Deputy Communications Director at the Presidency”
