Allotey Jacobs: Everything wikileaks revealed is so true


Allotey Jacobs: Everything wikileaks revealed is so true

In spite of calls on Ghanaians to not place premium on information from whistle-blowers, wikileaks, Mr Allotey Jacobs, Central Regional Communications Director of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), believes everything contained in the leaked US diplomatic cables is fact and can be relied on as a basis to judge the nation's leaders.

Many aspects of the information as revealed by the cables, he said, are visibly manifest for any open minded person to observe.

The cables, amongst other things, report Insight newspaper Manager, Kwesi Pratt as telling US Embassy officials that flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo smoked marijuana.

They also quote Trade Minister Hanna Tetteh as suggesting that the Speaker of Parliament was given her position because the government saw her as malleable and susceptible to party discipline.

She, according to the revelations, also said the NDC National Chairman, Dr Kwabena Adjei is immature.

New Crusading Guide Editor-In-Chief, Malik Kweku Baako has cautioned too much premium should not be put on the reports since they were simply a rehashing of statements and claims and opinions of other people.

While contributing to discussions on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Wednesday, Mr Allotey Jacobs however maintained it would be illogical for anyone to suggest there is no truth in the report, asking whether the the American Embassy has anything to gain from concocting stories about Ghanaian officials.

Wikileaks, according to him, has revealed a lot about corruption, especially in relation to the former New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration and also about the credibility of it’s flagbearer.

Allotey Jacobs said the cables would help Ghanaians make their choice concerning the presidency in future and added that it was time for the citizenry to ask themselves whether or not their future president would use drugs.

He stressed that the cable was mainly important to the cause of the country since it gives insight into “what happens behind the scenes,” saying, nothing under the sun can be hidden.

Touching on what Hannah Tetteh is alleged to have said, Mr Jacobs said he had no doubts the cables reflected the truth because happenings in Parliament - where the speaker is not allowed to sit on controversial issues - testified to it.

He maintained that as far as he was concerned, everything reported by wikileaks is the truth but maintained that it was incumbent on the citizenry to decipher the information.

However Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide - irritated by what he termed as Allotey’s poverty of analysis - warned that overrating the wikileaks report could pose a danger for the nation.
