The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has reacted to claims by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) that it is being hypocritical about housing issues in the country describing the Works and Housing Minister as playing the ostrich.

Hon. E. T. Mensah on at a press conference on Monday hit hard at the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA) for claiming its proposal to the ministry to take over the botched STX deal was ignored.

The Ningo-Prampram MP also described the support the association has received from the opposition NPP in that regard as hypocritical.

But General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie in an interview with XYZ News said the NDC government must apologize to Ghanaians for sidelining local artisans in favour of a foreign company in the latest housing deal rather than trying to defend its position.

“Am amazed that E.T Mensah should behave like an ostrich and speak in the terms he did, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie popularly known as Sir John said.

He added “when we put up this presidential mansion that is now housing the ministry of foreign affairs, over 80 percent of the work was done by Ghanaians and E.T Mensah could have done himself good by reading the notes that he came to meet but because of laziness he has not read the notes”.

“The difference is that GREDA has written to you that if Government assists them they will be able to deliver but they were refused the opportunity by a government that calls itself social democrats” He added.
