Akufo-Addo Refused to Meet 2 Military Generals To Discuss Threats On Ghana’s Security – Nyaho-Tamakloe Alleges
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that respected Ghanaian statesman Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has accused the president of turning down an opportunity to obtain credible intel on threats to Ghana’s security.
The stalwart of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) disclosed on Thursday, November 2, 2022 that Nana Akufo-Addo refused to meet two top retired generals, General Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah and General Napoleon Ashley-Lassen.
He made the comments during an interview on Radio XYZ to buttress his point that the president is taking a lot of bad decisions in governing the country.
"General Brigadier Nunoo-Mensah and General Ashley Lassen, have both been Chief of Staff before in this country. They watched carefully about a couple of months ago, and they realised security was at its lowest end," he said.
Nyaho-Tamakloe has been criticising the president's handling of the country for sometime now.
