- NDC's General Secretary, General Mosquito, has described President Akufo-Addo as a visiting president to Ghana
- According to him, the president is constantly on trips abroad
- He went on to say that it is a drain on the same public purse the president promised to keep safe
The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has likened President Akufo-Addo to a visiting president to Ghana.
According to him, the president barely stays in his own country, as he is almost always on a trip.
In that regard, he went on, President Akufo-Addo is unable to attend to the needs of Ghanaians who voted his government into office.
Speaking on Okays FM's 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that the President has not spent more than a month in the country without traveling outside.
According to Asiedu Nketiah, who is also known as General Mosquito, the President, who promised to cut profligate spending and save the public purse, has done the exact opposite with his constant travels.
"Rarely do you see or hear of him in the country; he has been traveling around to other countries as if he is a visiting president in the country. He gets his plane fueled and then moves around other countries.”, he added.
He went ahead to inquire how the president can claim to be a protector of the public purse, if he is constantly traveling.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo left Accra on Saturday, April 21, 2018, to attend the 25th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London, United Kingdom.
The meeting took place from Monday and ended on Friday on the theme “Towards a Common Future". President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has however returned to the country.
