President and Chairman of Doscar Group Holdings, HRH Oscar Yao Doe, has revealed that nepotism isn’t a new practice in Ghana.
The well-established Ghanaian business executive debunks reports suggesting nepotism is a new practice initiated by the current government. He stated in a public post made this morning that, the only President who didn’t practise it was President Jerry John Rawlings, and it has, therefore, being part of all previous administration.
However, he said the practice is now catching the attention of the public because President Nana Akufo-Addo has taken it to another level. Even with that, HRH Doe says the President has strangely turned a blind eye to the sacrifices made by the siblings of the First Lady, who have been by his side through thick and thin.

Nepotism In Ghana’s Body Politics (Ndc & Npp)Are All Guilty.But Prez J.J Rawlings Did Not Practise Nepotism”The Truth” He Led By Example.
Prez Kuffuor Very Limited,His Brother Dr Addo-Kuffuor Was Appointed A Minister.
Prez Mills Appointed His Twin Brother An Advisor.
Prez Mahaha Appointed His Niece Deputy Minister,Her Husband(Fda) And Gave Ghana’s Bauxite Reserved To His Brother (Unwise Decision) Very Childish.
But Prez Akuffo Addo Stand Tall In This Debate,He Has Loaded His Immediate Family Including Distance Cousins,Close Friends Into An Articulator Truck And Drove Them All The Way To Government Positions Like A Fise Of Cartoons Dropped Into The Ocean.But Strangely He Has Ignored The Sacrifices Of The First Lady Siblings Who Worked Harder Day & Night Over Decades To Stand By Him.
From Another Angle,You Can Also Sympathise With Prez Akuffo Addo,Because Many Of His Immediate Family Members Including Cousins,Closed Friends Have Stood By Him Almost 2 Decades Throughout His Political Career,Therefore On The Balanced Of Scale I Think He Can Be Forgiven Even Though It’s Excessive,And The History Books Will Capture Prez Akuffo Addo Appointments As Such.There Are Many More Names In Government Which Were Not Captured On The List Because The Ndc Rushed To Collate The List For Their Political Benefit.
I Bet To Differ On The Ahwoi Brothers,Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu, Harry Sawyer,Lee Ocran,Betty Mould”They Are Political Icons” For Ghana In Frontline Politics Since 1970’s,80’s & 90’s, Served In Parliament & Council Of State,Etc. No Family Relationship With Prez Rawlings,Mills & Mahaha.
Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu Is A Giant Political Pillar For Ghana,He Influenced Prez Rawlings To Allowed Ghana Into A Democracy In 1992.
Hon Hannah Tetteh Served In Parliament & Very Capable Politician No Family Relationship With Prez Mills & Mahaha.The Genius Lawyer Tony Lithur, Alex Mould, Oye Lithur, Sawyer Family Etc.Are All Classic Ghanaians With Qualifications & Capabilities To Serve In Government (No Family Relationship With Prez Mills & Prez Mahaha)
We Have An Obligation To Educate Our Youths And Upcoming Generation On Ghana Politics With The Truth.
