The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has provided a list of 51 relatives and cronies within the Akufo-Addo government.

At a press conference on Tuesday, the National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi listed the names which he said point to “classic and unprecedented” nepotism within the Akufo-Addo government.

The list includes the entire nuclear family of Nana Asante Bediatuo who is a cousin to the President and is also his Executive Secretary.

Sammy Gyamfi referred to Nana Akufo-Addo’s vow to eschew nepotism and cronyism, a pledge which he made in January 2016 ahead of the general elections.

The NDC National Communications Officer described the level of nepotism as amounting to “total state capture.”
