Minister of State at the Ministry of Interior who is also the Member of Parliament of Abetifi constituency, Mr Bryan Acheampong, has said he advised the Minister of National Security Albert Kan Dapaah not to release information on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s trips outside Ghana.
He said during the debate on the 2022 budget statement on Tuesday November 23 that information about the President’s travels cannot be made public because of national security reasons.
He said “anytime our president travels he returns with goodies. He visited Germany and he came home with vaccines. Anytime he travels, he comes with goodies,” he said.
Mr Acheampong added “I advised the Minister of National Security to keep the information on presidential travels secret.
“It is not every information that can be divulged to the public. Hitherto, it was information that can be shared but it is no longer information that can be played in the Political arena,” he said.”
