Former President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Professor Charles Ofori Marfo, has criticized the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), labeling them as “incompetent.”

His critique emerged amidst a discussion surrounding the issue of ‘dumsor,’ a local term denoting erratic power supply.

Professor Marfo’s remarks were triggered by recent statements from NPP representatives, who branded their adversaries in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), led by former President John Mahama, as incompetent.

However, he argued that such accusations lacked credibility when coming from a party that, in his perspective, had displayed similar inadequacies.

“A few days ago, I heard their spokesperson say, incompetent Mahama. It sounds so bitter to me because they have exhibited the same incompetence…a pot shouldn’t tell charcoal that it’s black…when it comes to this particular issue (incompetence), they (the NPP) have no grounds to call Mahama that because they have failed,” oyerepaonline.com quoted him to have said in an interview on April 18, 2024.

Addressing the issue of ‘dumsor,’ Professor Marfo contended that the NPP had failed to effectively tackle the problem during their administration.

He highlighted that during the NDC’s tenure under Mahama, endeavors were made to alleviate the electricity crisis, with some members of the NPP acknowledging enhancements in power supply.
