President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s relation, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, uses his social media handle to address different issues, a key task being to support and defend the government and its policies.
In the line of support, Gabby has often had cause to hit back at detractors of the government.
A recent case in point was his February 7, 2022 fight back at a damning economic verdict by former President John Dramani Mahama on the economy of the country.
Despite responding to a purely economic presentation by Mahama, Gabby employed an analogy that involved a stammerer and a rapper. While apologizing to stammerer’s for his use of their situation, he chose one rapper to mention. Sarkodie.
“Listening to John Mahama preach on the economy is like hearing a stammerer (apologies to stammerers), not only boldly criticising @sarkodie’s rap, but trying to convince music lovers that @sarkodie must learn to learn how to verbalise from him, the stutterer,” he tweeted.
Gabby’s beef with Mahama’s economic epistle
According to Otchere-Darko, Mahama has no locus to issue a critical verdict over the economy especially because under his watch, it took only the International Monetary Fund to save the economy from collapse.
“JM’s Teachings: “Government must as a matter of urgency, borrow a leaf from our sound approach toward the challenges we faced in 2015. We immediately convened the Senchi Economic Forum…”
“His “home-grown” policies to his home-grown problems led us to the IMF for IMF solutions,” Gabby stated.
