Ablakwa chases Nana Addo for list of Presidential Staffers


The Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Okudzeto Ablakwa, has accused President Akufo-Addo of violating section 11 of “the Presidential Office Act, 1993 (Act 463) which among others requires of him to submit to Parliament the list of Presidential Staff employed at his office within three months after the end of each financial year.”

The legislator bemoaned the refusal of the president to discharge his constitutional duty by providing parliament with the list of his staffers despite the Minority’s numerous reminders.

He wrote: “President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has indeed violated section 11 of the Presidential Office Act, 1993 (Act 463) which among others requires of him to submit to Parliament the list of Presidential Staff employed at his office within three months after the end of each financial year. (See exact provision below)

To the extent that we in the Minority, time without number, reminded the President on the floor of Parliament of his obligations under Act 463; certainly, this breach does not cut a good image for our President who wants to be acknowledged as the lawyer who champions strict adherence to the laws of Ghana.”
