The Presidency says Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s criticisms against President Akufo Addo’s recent spending on air travel is aimed at causing public disaffection for the latter.
“Undoubtedly, the Hon. MP’s motives are not well-intentioned, as he is merely seeking to score cheap political points”, a statement from the Presidency read.
Mr. Ablakwa had claimed that €480,000 was spent on President Nana Akufo-Addo’s recent trips to Belgium and Rwanda.
The Presidency however said this claim was untrue.
“He provides no evidence or documentary proof whatsoever to back up his €480,000 cost claim, because he has none”, the presidency said.
