Mr. Amaliba said, for a party that accused the erstwhile Mahama administration as being a ‘friends and family government', this is unacceptable.

In his view, many of the appointments made by President Akufo-Addo have gone to undeserving people.

…the president employs ex-girlfriends and family members. Ex-girlfriends of the president have been made ambassadors.”

The NDC legal team member was, however, made to withdraw his statement by the host, Bright Nana Amfoh.

This was after he failed to substantiate his claims when asked to do so after making the wild allegations against the President.

Meanwhile, an NPP spokesperson, Stephen Amoah, who was also on the show, said there is nothing wrong with employing family members provided they are qualified.

The fact that somebody is a president doesn’t mean his brother cannot work, unless the president’s brother is doing something against the law or probably being given too much advantage against others,” Mr. Amoah said.
