The entire members of the nuclear family of the Executive Secretary to the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Nana Asante Bediatuo have all found space at the eating table in Akufo-Addo’s government, a report MyNewsGh.com has sighted revealed.
Mr Asante Bediatuo who is widely known as a ‘self-made rich man’ in law practice is himself directly related to the President and has allegedly created space inside government for his father, mother, sister and brother to also ‘chop’ since his cousin became president. Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says this is typical ‘family and friends’ governance.
The revelation came to light when the National Communication Officer of the NDC, Mr.Sammy Gyamfi addressed his party’s Moment of Truth series with documents to back his claims.
The opposition NDC has consistently accused the Akufo-Addo government of being the most nepotistic government in the history of Ghana, a charge government has denied.
For the Asante Bediatuo family: Kofi Darko Asante who is the father of Nana Asante Bediako is Chairman of GIMPA Council. Mrs Vida Asante, mother of Nana Asante Bediako is heading the President’s Household at the seat of government. Kwesi Kuutu Asante brother of Nana Asante Bediako is a member of the Ghana Hostel Board and Lauretta Otchere sister of Nana Asante Bediako is a Deputy Director General at SSNIT, all positions they acquired with the appointment of Nana Asante Bediatuo, NDC’s Sammy Gyamfi alleged.
