Sammy Gyamfi criticises Stephen Ntim’s SoNA as a repetition of clear falsehoods and weak justifications


The national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Stephen Ayesu Ntim, has come under fire from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for allegedly circulating misleading information. Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC’s director of national communications, has criticised Ntim.

Sammy Gyamfi contends that the NPP chairman’s reaction to the NDC’s “Real State of the Nation” is a repetition of lies and a poor defence of the shortcomings of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration.


He stated that the chairman was unaware of the speech’s content when he delivered it earlier this week.

“President Akufo-infamous Addo’s State of the Nations speech on March 8, 2023, had a number of blatant falsehoods and flimsy justifications, and the statement made by the National Chairman is nothing more than a repetition of those claims.

“You could see plainly that he has been pushed and pressured to talk,” he claimed, referring to the national chairman’s presentation.

On April 5, 2023, Sammy Gyamfi said at a panel discussion on Joy News that Stephen Ayensu Ntim did not enjoy lying to the typical Ghanaian but was forced to do so because of his position as the party’s leader.

“He was a man who clearly did not believe in the kinds of things he was saying; he had no understanding of the topics that had been written for him to read out.

And it was clear that he had been coerced into holding a press conference by his henchmen and the hawks in the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration, all because the national chairman of the NDC gave a significant speech on the “Real Condition of the Nation.”

Hence, he said, “it would have been better if he had not spoken at all because he has further supported the NPP Akufo-Addo, Bawumia government’s dishonesty, their lack of regard for the people of this nation, and their insensitivity to their predicament.”

During a news conference dubbed “the Real State of the Nation Address,” Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the National Chairman of the NDC, declared that all of the current government’s pledges have shown to be false.

In reaction to these accusations, Stephen Ntim gave a press conference on April 5 at the party’s headquarters in Accra.

In his remarks at the conference, Stephen Ntim focused on the economic track records of the NDC, the primary opposition party, and the NPP, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He noted that the NPP was outperforming the NDC in terms of economic management despite both internal and foreign obstacles.
