He said some of the disclosures being made by the presidency are of national security and while they may think that they are harming the reputation of the opposition, they are rather revealing the weaknesses of the presidency.
“Are you not putting the President at risk? It’s as if President Akufo Addo has recruited people around him who are his enemies. Because what Eugene Arhin has done is putting the President’s life at risk, you are telling the whole world that the President now sits in a car which is not bullet proof while there are criminals and assassins all over the place. Why should he put out such information, does this conduct shows he cares and loves the President…it’s as if he’s an enemy to the President.”

Mr Agbenyo made these statements on Peace FM following a revelation made by the Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin that stated that President Nana Akufo-Addo is compelled to use his private Land cruiser car when he going outside Accra, and a 2007 BMW car purchased by the state, following the over 200 state cars which government claimed has disappeared from the pool of vehicles at the presidency.
Fred Agbenyo added, “I thought by now officials at the Presidency should have received some security briefings that nobody discloses so much about the President and the presidency. It is not for nothing that when the President is moving out, we see in his convoy one or two cars which are the same as his official vehicle so that in the event that some happens, the President is immediately put in another car, so that the public are not able to identify the one in which of the cars he’s riding in.”
