Minority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has
accused President John Mahama of presenting
“palpable untruths, half-truths, and
embellished truths,” during his State of the
Nation Address to Parliament on Thursday
February 25, 2016.
Addressing the media after the president’s
three-hour address, the Minority leader
expressed dissatisfaction with the time spent
by President Mahama on his ‘evidence-based’
presentation.
“There are three measures of assessing any
State of the Nation Address. First of all the
president is obligated under Article 67 of our
constitution to present to the people of this
country through the House of Parliament the
State of the Nation Address,” the Suame MP
stated.
“Article 34(2) provides us with some window
about what to expect in a State of a Nation
Address. So, that is the first measure that one
uses to assess the presentation and the Article
34(2) talks about measures taken towards
liberalisation of the basic human right of
persons in this country.
“The second one is the health of the economy.
The third one: the right to work and the right
to employment. How many people are
employed in this country? Of course, we do
know that employment is predicated on
agriculture and industry. What is the state of
agriculture in this country? What is the state
of industry, especially the manufacturing
industry, in this country?
“The right to good healthcare of the citizens of
this country, the right to education; these are
the essential ingredients that the president
ought to have reported to this country on.
“It was a tragedy of a presentation and for the
avoidance of doubt, the president presented
palpable untruths, half-truths and embellished
truths.
“What is the state of the economy? He pushed
it to the background because one thought that
advancing the course of this country will be
predicated on the economy: solid economy by
every yard stick, GDP growth rate, interest
rates, inflation, the strength of the currency.
By every yard stick, our country is not doing
well”.
