The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), Mr John Boadu has rubbished claims by the NDC that the current administration is a family and friends government.

Responding to a press conference by the NDC which accused the Akufo-Addo led administration of handing family members positions in government, Mr John Boadu said such claim is unfounded.

He revealed that every member of the President’s family who has been appointed to hold any position got that position on merit.

Citing the appointment Honourable Atta Akyea as a Minister for example, he said it is not the President’s fault that his family members are well placedto be considered for positions in government.

Taking a swipe at the flag-bearer of the NDC, Mr John Dramani Mahama, he said the former leader would have done same but unfortunately for him, his family members were into “buying and selling” instead.
