The Minority in Parliament is pushing for disclosure in the cost of the ‘’lavish parties’’ organised by President Akufo-Addo.
The first 100 days of President Akufo-Addo they noted has seen several parties after the Presidential inauguration, and others associated with the Ghana@60 anniversary celebrations which are a drain on the state finances.
At a press conference addressed by the Deputy Leader, James Avedzi said: “We have seen evidence of how millions of taxpayer’s money was spent on these parties at which expensive drinks served included some that were customized with the President’s name on them. We call on the Akufo-Addo government to, in the name of transparency, make public the amount spent on these parties.”
“Our resources will not be safe with such a large government that has voracious and elephantine appetite. We wonder how the NPP could so soon abandon the plight of the people and the platform on which they campaigned to climb to power,’’ he added.
