The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has presented names of persons it says are relatives and cronies within the Akufo-Addo government.

In response, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has condemned the NDC for a ‘campaign of hate and division’.

“We are not sure about appointing enemies,” National Youth Organiser Nana Boakye said at a press conference to get back at the NDC.
