Member of Parliament for the Ningo-Prampram constituency, Hon. Sam Nartey George, has blamed President Nana Akufo Addo for his daughter, Edwina Nana Dokua Akufo Addo's implication in the recent scandal at the state controlled BOST.
According to Hon. Sam "Dzata" George, President Nana Akufo Addo's daughter, Edwina, is suffering from the very same form of "rumor mongering" that her father dabbled in during the past eight years.
The Ningo-Prampram legislator pondered how Edwina Akufo Addo could demand a retraction and subsequent apology for comments implicating her in the BOST (Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation) Company scandal when her father, then presidential candidate for the then opposition New Patriotic Party, alleged that former first lady Lordina Mahama "was in charge of distributing contracts" in an address in the Brong Ahafo Region.

"Did her father apologise to Lordina Mahama when he stood in Brong Ahafo and said she was in charge of distributing contracts? Did he adduce any evidence to that?" Said Sam George.
Hon. Sam George went on to say that the New Patriotic Party (NPP), the party led by President Akufo Addo, has made many allegations against former President Mahama's brother, Ibrahim Mahama both while in opposition and after achieving political victory. He said that Biblical scripture states that a father's sins are revisited on subsequent generations, and added that Edwina Akufo Addo is reaping the seeds her father sowed.
“I’m not saying it is the right thing, but if you come from a home where your father has been the rumor monger-in-chief you [do] not want to cry foul. She just has to grow tough skin and prepare for these things because she’s just harvesting from the tree that her father planted.”
