“It’s never ever true that government is financing President’s vacation trip…the fact remains that this is not a state sponsored trip because the President is financing it himself,” Arhin said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen of Friday.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is on a week-long vacation in the United Kingdom, effective Wednesday, May 9, 2018.

He was accompanied by the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, his children and grandchildren.
