Supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) across social media platforms are highly incensed over the appointment of Abeiku Santana, who is known member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as “Ambassador for The COVID-19 National Trust Fund” by the Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo led government.
The NPP angry supporters believed Mr. Abeiku Santana does not deserve the offer, because he campaigned against the NPP when had played a major part in the campaign that got President John Mahama elected in 2012 by forming the group, Youth for Mahama (YFM).
According to them, other celebrities who have campaigned for the party for all their life until Nana Addo was elected in 2016 should have been appointed instead.
Some of the Ghanaian celebrities who campaigned for the NPP to win 2016 and 2020 general elections are Samini, Sarkodie, Agyakoo, Daddy Limba, Kwabena Kwabena, and many others.
One of the NPP supporters identified as Gideon Cheremeh Amoah on Facebook wrote :
“This is preposterous, annoying, backward, stupid and extremely denigrating to the rank and file of NPP. Are they telling us that there are no better persons in NPP that can do this job? Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, John Boadu and the rest of the leadership of NPP, I’m saddened with such development, how can you appoint an NDC goon for such role? This is extremely uncouth, footsoldiers that laboured to ensure success of the party during the 2020 polls are wallowing in abject unemployment and look at who you appoint?? An official petition will be sent to your office to revoke such unhealthy appointment of an NDC stooge like this guy.. I’m very mad at you people… we will stop propagating the good works of NPP if you dont revoke this ridiculous appointment ASAP.
All Footsoldiers & Grassroots Should Voice Out Now.
We Deserve Better Than Abeiku Santana.”
