Former Deputy Minister of Information, James Agyenim-Boateng has asked GHOne TV presenter Serwaa Amihere to learn to deepen her intelligence in her field of practice after she posed a question to the opposition National Democratic Congress relating to their delay in presenting their campaign policies.
Serwaa Amihere in a tweet questioned why the NDC, barely a year to election 2020, has not provided Ghanaians a tip of one of their main campaign policies.
Her tweet read, “With almost one year to the 2020 elections, we are yet to hear of one major policy proposal from the NDC. Why this long delay.”
But the former Deputy Minister of Information in the erstwhile Mahama administration who didn’t seem too pleased with the presenter’s comments retorted with an attempt to school the presenter on the processes involved in compiling a party manifesto, for an electioneering campaign.
Mr Agyenim-Boateng wrote, “As a TV presenter, you’ve got to have an appreciation of issues. Should that “One major policy proposal” precede a manifesto committee, campaign team, manifesto launch, etc? Hone your craft Serwaa Amihere.”
Agyenim-Boateng was not the only member of the opposition party who took offence for the media personality’s question. Dzifa Gunu also infuriated by the question replied her saying, “You are a very lazy and uninformed journalist, you thrive on noise to be relevant”.
She further added “did you hear @JDMahama talk about scrapping the double-track completely? Didn’t you hear him say he will abolish the luxury tax before the NPP rushed to abolish it? Do your research?”
