A former deputy Minister for Energy, K.T. Hammond, has launched a blistering attack on Deputy Minister for Information, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, describing him as a schoolboy who doesn’t know anything.
K.T. Hammond Wednesday accused Kwakye Ofosu of indulging in propaganda and peddling falsehood, despite his position as a Minister of State.
Sounding very angry, the former Minister condemned Kwakye Ofosu’s approach to analysing national issues, describing it as crude and unbecoming of a Minister.
“When you are appointed a minister, you refine your language and speak in a manner that befits the dignity of your office”, he told Accra-based Asempa FM.
K.T. Hammond was reacting to Kwakye Ofosu’s earlier assertion that the NPP administration under President Kufuor had sold GNPC’s drill ship like tomatoes on the market. Kwakye Ofosu also alleged that the NPP administration also appropriated to themselves properties meant for public servants.
The remarks had not gone down well with K.T. Hammond, prompting him to criticise the Deputy Minister in a caustic manner. GNPC’s drill ship Discoverer 511 was sold by the Kufuor administration in 2001 reportedly to clear the state-owned oil company’s indebtedness of $19.5 million to multinational French bank Societe Generale.
The sale is, however, the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Judgement Debt Commission headed by Justice Yaw Apau.
