How Felix Kwakye Ofosu Made Sammy Gyamfi Look ‘stupid’ On TV

Published

on


Since the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia claimed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) blew the cost of four interchanges on the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange alone (which was $260million) , there have been various attempts by the opposition party to defend and refuse the claim.

In light of this, Communications Director of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi was ‘caught dazing’ on CitiTV’s ‘Point of View when host, Bernard Avle told him, his colleague Felix Kwakye Ofosu earlier admitted that the NDC cannot challenge the $260million claims by Bawumia.

Sammy insisted that the NDC does not in any way side with the $260million and that the cost of the interchange was rather $90million.

“The problem with this is last year sitting on the same chair, Felix Kwakye Ofosu said nobody in his party has disputed the $260million claim. He denied that your party ever said anything about the cost,” Bernard Avle told Sammy.

In a rebuttal Sammy noted, “that was before our press conference and before we appeared on NewsFile. He rectified that on NewsFile.”

However, Bernard Avle insisted saying, “aren’t we splitting heads here? Your spokesperson said otherwise. I can play for you what Felix did.”

Explaining himself, Sammy Gyamfi noted that the Vice President rather accumulated the cost of two separate and distinct projects [the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and the Ring Road Flyover] which created the impression it was the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange alone.

“It is important to emphasize that, the two projects (the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and the Ring Road Flyover) are distinct from each other and were separately approved by Parliament at different periods for different purposes. The scope of work of the two projects are totally different, and so it is disingenuous and shameful for Dr. Bawumia to lump the cost of the two projects together and create the impression that same is inflated.”

“On the issue of the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, the claims Dr Bawumia made are misleading and not factual. But to break that down for the ordinary Ghanaian to understand, what Dr. Bawumia did was simply mischievous. He told a blatant lie when he said the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange project is $260 million and we need to settle that issue once and for all because if you check the parliamentary Hansard of 16th August 2012, when the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange project was approved, it was very clear that the cost of the project as approved by Parliament was £74.8 million equivalent to $90 million at the time and Kwame Nkrumah interchange had only one phase, there was no phase two.” Sammy Gyamfi vehemently protested.

This comes after Dr Bawumia made claims that money the NDC spent on constructing the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange could have build four more interchanges.

He noted that the Tema, Pokuase, Obetsebi Lamptey and Tamale Interchanges were all at a cost of 289 Million dollars, but the Nkrumah Interchange alone under the NDC cost 260 Million dollars.

NPPs Are Hypocrite— Kwame A-Plus

Published

on


Kwame A-Plus has slammed the NPP for their hypocrisy in calling the National Communicator of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi a small boy.

According to him, the NPP has other young persons in their party and even mentioned Francisca Oteng Mensah who entered Parliament at the age of 23years.

He argued that, the NPP always think whatever the NDC does is bad.

He went ahead to reveal more of their hypocrisy to strengthen his point.

Below is his full post;

An NPP person will look at Sammy Gyemfi and say he is a small boy so he should shut up. But in that same party, they have Oppong Nkrumah and Nitiwul as cabinet ministers. How old was Nitiwul when he began his political activism? 🤦‍♂️ Don’t you have Anthony Karbo, Kodua as government appointees and even Francisca Oteng Mensah who entered parliament at the age of 23?

These hypocrites will ask Sammy Gyemfi what work he ever did before politics when they know that from school, John Boadu went straight to work at NPP party headquarters and has worked there till now. When it is NPP, it is good paaa, when it is NDC it is very bad.

As for that party and hypocrisy diɛ only Nebuchadnezzar can explain.

You see this issue I’ve raised? I did because Facebook asked me; “What is on your mind.” Not; “How do you feel forever.” Or; “What is on somebody else’s mind.” So what is on my mind right now is how hypocritical some NPP people can be. When I come back and facebook ask me what is on my mind again and at that point, some NDC people are being stupid, I’ll say what is on my mind.

Thank you 👍🏾
Adey go come 😅
Byeeeee 😄

Published

on


The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken their political campaign to the next level and has promised to reopen the country’s land entry point to enable boarder countries trade.

Samuel Ofosu-Ampofu, National Chairman of the party made this revelation at Ketu North Constituency while introducing the running mate of the party, Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang to electorates.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo was quoted by ClassFmOnline.com saying;

“Have you seen Covid-19 crossing boarders before?

“It is only Nana Akuffo-Addo and Bawumia who can tell us that the Covid cross border and that if you close the border Covid will not be able to come.

“I want to assure you that 40 days from now there is going to be an election and there’s going to be a new president and a new government under the leadership of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama.

“The NDC government under John Mahama will not ensure that the border closes perpetually. We will open the border immediately and allow trade activities between Ghana and Togo.”

Meanwhile, President Nana Addo closed the borders to limit the spread of the virus.
