The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Nana Addo government of spending lavishly instead of tackling the real issues of governance.

Addressing a press conference Thursday, July 20, Chairman of the NDC, Kofi Portuphy said governance is not a Tea Party but a serious business.

According to him, the profligate expenditure on the day of inauguration alone is nothing good to write home about.

“On the day of the inauguration alone, the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia spent lavishly on three separate very expensive state banquets and from that day it has been one banquet to the other while innocent Ghanaians are dying on daily basis.”

The NDC’s press conference comes in the wake of Mr. Akufo-Addo’s encounter with the press on Tuesday, July 18.
