NPP Communicators Talk About Finance Minister’s Databank
NPP communicators in the Upper East Region have announced that they will no longer support Databank and Black Stars Brokerage, two companies in which the current finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta, has financial interests.
Insisting that they have done enough work for these two firms, Wunison Khan Jambeidu, a member of the NPP Communications Team for the Upper East Region, queries why the Public Affairs Directorates of these companies are not meeting expectations.
He claimed that the NPP is weary of the criticism and that it lacks the power to defend privately held businesses that are embroiled in disputes.
“I think that these two companies (Databank and Black Stars Brokerage) will have to be up and doing. They have Corporate Affairs departments, what are those departments doing? You have the NDC dragging these two companies over the last four-five years and we don’t hear these companies come out to defend themselves. It has to take me; it has to take the communications team of the party to defend them because these are party people. These companies belong to them or they have shares in these companies or though currently they have offloaded these shares and are not shareholders or directors of these companies,” he said on Dreamz Fm’s News Digest.
According to him “The Corporate Affairs departments of these companies would have to begin to speak for their companies. We have defended these companies enough. Look at this time [5 minutes] am using to deal with this matter, I’d have used these minutes to be able to tell our listeners how the cedi is depreciating and what government and the Bank of Ghana are doing”.
