Akufo-Addo blowing state funds on lavish parties – NDC alleges – Starr Fm


The opposition National Democratic Congress has alleged that the Akufo-Addo led government has spent an enormous amount of state funds on multiple luxurious parties since he was sworn-in as the President of the Republic of Ghana.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday to review the president’s 100 days in office, the deputy minority leader James Klutse Avedzi called on President Akufo-Addo to disclose the source of funding for the numerous parties held in his honour since his inauguration.

According to Mr. Avedzi, the opulence that characterized most of the parties are shocking as some of the drinks served were custom made with the president’s name embossed on the bottles served at the party.

“We have seen evidence of parties with some drinks, some custom-made with his name on it…we call on the Akufo-Addo government to disclose the source of funding.”

The Minority criticized the NPP administration over what it described as bloated government adding that the country is under siege from state-sponsored thuggery and terrorism from vigilante groups affiliated to the NPP.

Mr. Avedzi added that the president has failed to protect the public purse, despite his promise on the campaign trail to bring unprecedented economic growth and good governance to Ghana.

The minority added that the so-called achievements touted by Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Monday are nothing but a total deception.
