None of us would have thought that the transition process will be facing the challenges it is met with with today as members of the two political parties attack each other over accusations and trust issues.
Acting general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has accused NDC ministers of "doctoring" their handing over notes. According to him, outgoing ministers are shredding classified documents and also auctioning cars ahead of the transition.
This development has seen the spokesperson for the NDC transition team, Hanna Tetteh, release an emergency press statement describing the claims as ill-informed and regrettable.
According to Hanna Tetteh, "NPP is looking for any opportunity it can obtain to demonize the out-going NDC administration instead of concentrating on understanding the state of affairs of the respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies over which they will soon have political oversight”.
In accordance with the law, the transition team was put together by both the President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo and the current president to oversee the smooth handing over of power has been inaugurated.
The Transition process is guided by the Presidential Transition Act 2012 (Act 845).
