President Akufo-Addo’s daughter Gyankroma Akufo-Addo, has refuted claims that she received a US$25 million government contract to decorate some parts of the capital.
In a statement released on November 2, 2022, she disclosed that all three art projects were executed through fundraising activities by the Creative Arts Agency, a company she heads.
“For the avoidance of any doubt, it is important to state that these projects were solely conceived, managed, and financially undertaken by The Creative Arts Agency, through its own fundraising activities,” the statement noted.
In the case of the second site, the statement read: “Site 2, Tetteh Quarshie, was paid for by myself, Gyankroma Akufo-Addo.”
“It is a complete fabrication being propagated by some shameless persons, and which, unfortunately, has been published by sections of the media. This project was not embarked upon to make a profit, and there have been no lucrative contracts awarded for it,” it added.
