Embattled former Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National
Democratic Congress (NDC) Bernard Allotey Jacobs insists he would
continue to sing praises of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) once
what they do is for the good of the country.
He disclosed that he is committed to the ideals and ideologies of the
NDC dismissing claims that he is in bed with the NPP as claimed by some
leaders of his party.
According to him, his stance on praising the current government
when it does good things is tailored towards changing the narrative in
the political discourse in the country.
“How could I be in bed with the NPP, facts are facts, when
something is good about the NPP I will say it, when it is wrong, I will

commended president Akufo-Addo for procuring 307 ambulances for Ghana.
“The interior of the state of the art ambulances recently
commissioned and distributed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

ambulance can give you the vim to survive. The inside is great,” Allotey
“All those ambulances that were brought into the country from
the Kufuor to Mahama regimes must be added to the current fleet. If
there is the need to retool them, they should, so we carve a new
ambulance system. It would be prudent for the government to supply them
ambulances to the Regional and Teaching Hospitals,” he added.
