The President is performing whatsoever he can do but there are persons who never comprehend why they are even in business office. There are individuals who really don’t have an understanding of and price what ever they have been assigned to do. Somebody ought to explain to the President something is improper.

When you listen to some of the large-profile personalities in governing administration, particularly within just our sector, and how they chat about Sarfo is mistaken. They do not accord him any regard and this gentleman is the a person aggressively defending the government”.

”How arrive that when you might be location up assignments, inauguarting or sign for tasks he is not conscious? What sort of disrespect is that? What kind of disrespect is this? That Head of Projects for Artistic Arts is not referred to as when they’re planning or likely to fee projects they don’t even invite him when taking in. Why? What crime has he committed to essentially protect the President and the occasion?
”…even when Sarfo has no idea about an challenge, he will discover a way of defending it and I normally bash him that you are not informed about this situation but you constantly obtain a way of defending.

‘You sit in your offices and not come out to defend. This man kills himself to protect even to the extent of saying what is untrue as nicely as telling the truth of the matter. It’s all him. It’s Socrates. Just look at all the platforms, for the past 4 or so many years, when we want anyone to defend the NPP and what they have been up to, it is Socrates Sarfo. It is Socrates Sarfo, still you guys disrespect him all the time. Frequent facts you have to give him, you don’t want to make it obtainable to him. Why?
”This is the similar individual who will arrive and sit on radio and Television to protect, however you may not give the details. So, what data ought to he discuss on the radio and Tv? The amount of disrespect, disregard for Socrates Sarfo really should stop now due to the fact it really is not as if he is executing absolutely nothing. He is been operating for 4 decades. What eles need to he do?”
