-President Akufo-Addo is in New York for a United Nations conference
-His side activities have come under criticism
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered his maiden speech to the United Nations (UN) General Assembly on Thursday.
In a speech many described as bold, he called for reforms in the UN Security Council in order to ensure fairness and achieve the much desired world peace.
While many have commended him on his speech, others have focused on things other than the reason why the president went there.
The current issue gaining currency on social media is a photo of the Nana Addo and his wife, Rebecca at a mini party.
The story behind the photo is that, the evening after his address at the UN, he and his wife among others, joined Council of State Chairman, Juabenhene Nana Otuo Siriboe II to celebrate his birthday.
But critics, especially supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have taken to social media to chastise President Akufo-Addo.
According to them, he used the taxpayers' money to 'enjoy himself' while on official duty.
"Birthday celebrations in New York on the sidelines of the #UNGA. So much for saving the public purse", the party's official twitter handle captioned the photo.
Below are some of the posts from NDC supporters about the picture:
Do you think the claims of the NDC are justified?
