A Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enam Hadzide was yesterday dealt with by Facebook users after he wrote a message to console and sympathize with families who have lost their loved ones because of the absence of footbridges on the Adentan-Madina Highway.
On his facebook timeline, Pius had sought to share in the pain of residents of the two towns but the young politician could not end his post without drawing in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) which completed the road but could not fix the six designed footbridges before leaving office.
According to him, the NDC needed to be exposed in the face of the unfortunate incidents because it was due to their inactions that has led to the over 190 deaths within a year.
Pius Enam Hadzide writes: “My condolences and sympathies to the families of all the accident victims of the Madina-Adenta road. Government commitment to fixing this and many other challenges that it inherited remains resolute. We shall fix this in the shortest possible time.
Meanwhile we must call out the NDC for attempting to take undue advantage of this unfortunate incident and engage in opportunist politicking. We are where we are today primarily due to their 8 years of inaction.”
But some Ghanaians will have none of that as they asked him to keep quiet if he had nothing worthy to tell angry Ghanaians.
We pay you lot with hard earned tax payers money and we expect you to get serious and work to fix the many challenges bedeviling the masses not to come engage in gerrymandering and cheap propagandist rhetorics as ministers of state!
Hell yes! I am pissed off reading that hogwash nonsense you put out there! Partisan politics has its pl…
Checks by ghanadat.com this morning show he has pulled down the post and rather written a more consoling and assuring one, telling residents the footbridges will be constructed.
He wrote “We shall fix the inherited challenges including the Madina- Adenta footbridge challenges. Sympathies and condolences to all who have been adversely affected. You have spoken loudly and it has been heard clearly. Let’s remain calm at this point. We are with you!!!!”
