Outspoken TV and radio personality, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, famed as Afia Schwarzenegger, has torn into an NDC man for criticising President Akufo-Addo's use of the Flagstaff House.
Taking to her official Instagram page, Afia Schwar shared a screenshot from the Facebook page of a purported National Democratic Congress (NDC) party member, Yara Koku about Edwina Akufo-Addo's wedding.
According to the young man's post, the president had turned the seat of government into an event center for weddings and it was quite unacceptable to him.
Yayra Koku's post on Facebook read: "The Presidency is now a Family House for knocking/engagement/wedding ceremonies. The abuse of power in this Akufo-Addo’s government is becoming too much. Imagine this happening under President John Dramani Mahama regime."

However, in reacting to Koku's opinion, Schwar shared his post on her timeline and said the NDC man was just being overly jealous.
According to the award-winning TV personality, the past NDC government also held parties at the seat of government and added that she even attended a number of such functions.
Her Instagram post was captioned: "Jealousy...
How many times did ur party use the State House for bdays...of which I attended a couple
@nakufoaddo enjoy ur time wae...I personally don't like what I hate
And I hate President with No Swag"
Some fans of the comedienne took to the comment section to agree with her while others also begged to differ on her submission.
YEN.com.gh reached out to Georgina Attuquayefio, the CEO of Classy Choice Ghana Limited, an event organising hub in the country to take her views on the wedding.
According to her, the presidential wedding was very simple and she went on to give thumbs up to the organizers for staging a simple but classy event.
Mrs Georgina Attuquayefio said clients can end up spending hundreds of thousands to stage a memorable event and this is one thing the president's family avoided.
She indicated that she did not begrudge the organizers for hosting the event at the seat of government because the edifice was already magnificent and did not need any extra touch.
"The Flagstaff House is a monumental building in the history of the country and there is no other glamour bigger than that. Looking at it from the event center point of view, it was the best location available. Whoever decided to use the seat of government for the ceremony made the right call," Mrs Attuquayefio admitted.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that photos and videos from the traditional marriage between President Akufo-Addo's daughter Edwina and Maxwell Kofi Jumah's son, Kwabena, surfaced online.
The ceremony was attended by the high and mighty in Ghana's current political and other spheres.
Among the attendees was former president John Akyekum Kufour and Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.
The ceremony is said to have taken place on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
