Franklin Cudjoe, President of Policy Think Tank IMANI Africa, has clarified his constant criticisms of government, asserting that his actions are not intended to benefit any political party.

Cudjoe emphasized that his focus is on highlighting government misdeeds, a commitment he maintains regardless of which party is in power.

Reacting to accusations that his past actions helped brought the New Patriotic Party (NPP) under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to power, Cudjoe dismissed this narrative.

Sharing his views on Facebook, he insisted that if his criticisms of the current government mistakenly benefit another political party, he doesn't care since that is not his aim.

He wrote, “Hello everyone. I want to ask some of you to stop peddling the false narrative that I deliberately promoted this government into power. It was the NDC's misdeeds, which at the time was unmatched by any party since 1992 that got us all complaining. I do not care if my actions then benefitted the NPP electorally in 2016.

“Just know though that as I did then, I will and have been doing same against current economic decadence, grand procurement-inspired theft, larceny, misgovernance, misrule, aggravated arrogance, fiscal recklessness culminating in the ugliest of financial haircuts, demeaning of the self-esteem of our pensioner senior citizens and shepherding almost a million people into hard-core poverty as never experienced since generations. And I do not care if all I do as well as those of my colleagues benefits the NDC and any political party.”
