The claim was made on Tuesday when the NDC held a press conference to review the performance of the government after 100 days in office.

James Avedzi, the deputy minority leader who addressed the press conference, said Akufo-Addo had spent huge sums of public money to fund numerous parties since he was sworn-in to office.

Avedzi said if Akufo-Addo disputed the claim, he should disclose the source of funding to the parties.

He said the president's parties were characterised by a display of opulence and ostentation, adding that

Avedzi said the opulence displayed at most of the parties were shocking and that some of the drinks served were custom-made, with the president’s name embossed on the bottles.

“We have seen evidence of parties with some drinks, some custom-made with his name on it…We call on the Akufo-Addo government to disclose the source of funding,” he said.

The NDC's demand comes days after Akufo-Addo celebrated the 20th anniversary of his wedding to Rebecca in Accra.

The president had earlier held a breakfast party to mark his 73rd birthday.
