Lawyer and leading member of the New Patriotic Patriotic Party, Gabby Otchere-Darko has responded to criticisms against him that he is dabbling in matters at the presidency.
The Member of Parliament of Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, had warned President Akufo-Addo to stay on alert regarding the persons he keeps in his close circles.
According to Mr. Agyapong, Duke Ofori-Attah and Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko are some of the individuals who are leveraging their closeness to Nana Addo to engage in corrupt and damaging activities.
However, Mr. Otchere-Darko has come out to rubbish these claims, stating he does not work at the presidency nor has the ‘luxury’ to sit around with the president engaging in idle chatter.
In a Facebook post, Otchere-Darko stated: “For the avoidance of doubt, I do not work at the Presidency and lack the luxury to hang around the President doing 'konkonsa.' I run a law firm, Africa Legal Associates, Labone, where my job is to pursue the legal/corporate (legitimate) interests of my clients. That is my job. In fact, my only job. You may choose to hate. You may even choose to manufacture your own facts about me. But, that's ok. It is part of life and part of being me, I guess. I accept.”
Kennedy Agyapong, though facing backlash for his recent rants against members of the NPP, has maintained he will not stop calling out members who he believes are working to bring about the destruction of their government.
