Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, a National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament has criticised former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Prof. Stephen Adei.
Dafeamekpor’s critique is related to recent comments by Prof. Adei on the decision by Minority MPs to picket at the Bank of Ghana premises if the governor does not resign along with his deputies over recently announced losses.
The professor is on record to have said it is not simplistic to demand the resignation of a central bank governor and more so that the BoG premises was a security zone.
“Prof Addae is crying that, BOG is a security zone. He has so soon forgotten that Occupyghana used to Occupy the Flagstaff House under JM. Isn’t the seat of Govt a security zone then? The hypocrites have found their voices suddenly,” his posted on Twitter on August 15.
He is not the first NDC MP to go after the academic and economist. Minority Chief Whip, Kwame Governs Agbodza also tweeted: “It is rather sad that people like Prof. Stephen Adei have constantly chosen to be part of the problems of our nation and not the solution. Time and again, Prof. Adei has demonstrated through his hypocritical and lopsided positions and commentary on critical national issues, that all he cares about is his political affiliation and loyalty to his friends in government.”
