The presidency has again responded to some claims made by the Member of Parliament for North Tongu with regards to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s current trip to Belgium and Rwanda.
According to the Director of Communications, Eugene Arhin, the NDC lawmaker is only trying to ‘score political points with his series of “lies”.
He noted in a lengthy statement that, the president left the country with a chartered flight for a good reason.
“In his statement, the MP conveniently avoids the issue of President Akufo-Addo having to arrive from Brussels to Kigali on time to participate in the commencement of the Pan-African Vaccine Manufacturing Project, a project which is a collaboration between Ghana, Rwanda, and Senegal."
“This event and the President's participation was one of the reasons for which the decision was taken to charter a flight for the President, so he could arrive on time, demonstrate Ghana's solidarity, and deliver his far-reaching remarks at the start of this strategic Pan-African project.
"I am sure that the people of Ghana will recognize this as a good reason for the President to travel. Undoubtedly, the Hon. MP's motives are not well-intentioned, as he is merely seeking to score cheap political points to incite public disaffection against the President," part of the statement read.
