Bridget Otoo has clashed with foot soldiers of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) after highlighting Ghanaians’ deteriorating living standards as reflected in the increase in cement prices.
This is a familiar path for the Metro TV host, and she hauled her arsenal at her adversaries boot for the umpteenth time.
The footsoldiers, who always do the NPP’s bidding no matter what, slammed Bridget for revealing in a previous post that the price of cement has risen by nearly $10.00.
Those who are upset with her should direct their rage at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who she claims misled them about the cedi.
“You are not mad at Dr. Bawumia for Lying to you about the cedi? You are not mad about the government letting the cedi cross 10 cedis? Businesses are struggling? You are mad at me for reporting the fact that cement prices have gone up by 7-8 cedis?”
Was I the one who told the cement companies to increase a bag of cement by 7-8 cedis? Or am I the president of Aboboya association who tells them to charge 2-4 cedis for a bag of cement? Bridget Otoo wrote online.
She further asked these people who are much into partisan politics to channel their anger to the appropriate quarters because if one goes to the filling station to purchase fuel, they won’t ask for your NPP card!
“Yes cement prices is hitting 80 cedis, and it’s poor leadership that has brought us here! Make your family proud and for once, think for yourself! ” She advised.
