In his view, it was the worst to be held since it was introduced by the John Kufuor-led government.

Speaking on Accra-based Adom FM, Sulemana Braimah accused the President of branding a nation’s address into a meeting with journalists.

“Today’s encounter cannot be called Presidential and media encounter because what happened was, maybe the President was looking for a way to address the nation and they are branding it as meet the press” he said.
“…the entire meeting was about 90 minutes and what my team at the MFWA followed and saw the President using about 71 minutes of the time and the entire questions all the journalists asked was 19 minutes” Mr. Braimah added.

Mr. Braimah also criticized the President for taking a chunk of the time allotted for the event to deliver a speech that was full of praise-singing.

“An arrangement of this nature is supposed to give journalists the opportunity to ask as many questions as possible for the President to respond for the citizenry to understand but using all the time to address the nation with what’s on his heart, then I believe this is the worst of all the encounters that have happened,” he averred.
