PNC National Chairman Bernard Mornah says the ambassador-at-large Dr Edward Mahama has no office, and he is not being supported by the government.
According to Mr Mornah, the Akufo-Addo government has made appointments which are an unnecessary drain on the coffers of the state.
“Ambassador at Large does not have any office to operate from as we speak. The government doesn’t have much to support his office. He works from his Dome office. Akufo-Addo came into power on the note of fighting corruption. He mentioned he will not engage in family and friends kind of government but today we see him running family, friends, girlfriends & ex-girlfriends government.
“The President is seen clearing people who are alleged to have been involved in some form of corrupt acts. How come people have confidence in him after all the clearing….I don’t understand that bit of the report,” he noted on Morning Starr Thursday.
In July 2017, the President appointed the 2016 Flagbearer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Edward Nasigri Mahama as an Ambassador-at-Large.
He was among 21 others who have been appointed to represent Ghana as diplomats in other countries. An ambassador-at-large is an ambassador with special duties but not appointed to a particular country.
