President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has clarified his relationship with Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, Chief Executive Officer of the Jospong Group of Companies.
Some people have questioned why the two have become so close, according to the president.
“Some people believe that we have become friends, he said.
However, the president claimed that they were business partners rather than friends.
He was speaking at a memorial service for the late rites Opanin Samuel Kwame Agyepong, father of Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong.
“Some people have asked why Dr. Siaw Agyepong and I are friends. We are business partners, not friends. I discovered that he is doing good for Ghana, which is why the government is supporting him. He is not the only one we are rooting for. The government is ready to assist businesses and entrepreneurs who are doing something positive to help the economy grow.”
Opanin Kwame Agyepong passed away last June, aged 98, after a short illness. He will be buried on Saturday, September 10, 2022.
