An unnamed minister has reportedly claimed that government will use every available state resource to ensure the supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) receive uninterrupted supply of electricity during the World Cup.
According to him, the government of the republic of Ghana is working closely with the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and GRIDCo to provide uninterrupted power supply exclusively to the homes of all NDC supporters. “We have identified the NDC supporters who, for one reason or the other, were unable to take advantage of the government of Ghana sponsored all-expenses-paid trip to Brazil to view the games on giant outdoor screens. If they cannot make it to Brazil, at least they should be able to watch all the games from the comfort of their homes without any disruptions.”
The unnamed minister also said the government needed to be commended for being able to airlift hundreds of people to Brazil in the face of the current economic downturn. “We do deserve applause for our resourcefulness. The nation is broke and we can barely afford to pay public servants, but government has somehow been able to raise millions of dollars to send party supporters to Brazil to cheer the national side. It doesn’t even matter that they have no tickets to get into the stadium.”
Asked why the national cake is being shared along party lines, the minister retorted, “yes all Ghanaians are equal but some are more equal than others.”
