Smear campaign against Oppong Nkrumah over ‘Papa no’ joke
August 17, 2020
Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has come under a massive smear campaign for using the phrase ‘Papa no’ on the floor of Parliament in reference to colleague Member of Parliament (MP) John Jinapor during a debate.
The sitting in parliament lasted long and entered into the night, and the Information Minister decided to use the phrase to bring about some laughter since members were showing signs of tiredness.
Even though the Minister swiftly clarified that the comment was meant to be a joke to elicit humour after minority leader Haruna Iddrisu reacted angrily, some people, especially political opponents, took to social media to denigrate Oppong Nkrumah.
Social media was awash over the weekend with insults and defamatory accusations in an attempt to destroy the reputation of the Minister.
The phrase ‘Papa no’ has become controversial after it was used in an unfolding social media brouhaha by some ladies in reference to a sugar daddy known to them.
