The Minority in Parliament have accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of presenting a selective message on the true state of the nation and creating an atmosphere of hopelessness in his maiden State of the Nation Address to Parliament Tuesday.

In separate interviews with the Daily Graphic after the address, some Minority Members of Parliament (MPs) said the President decided to focus on the negatives of the past government that satisfied his purpose and failed to recognise the positives in order to deceive Ghanaians that he had inherited a mess, when in fact it was not the case.
