Gabby denies hijacking president Akufo-Addo

"I do not work at the Presidency and lack the luxury to hang around the President doing ‘kokonsa’", Gabby said in reaction to claims that he was impeding access to the president.

Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong and the founder of Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah had alleged that Mr Otchere-Darko belonged to a group of persons who are hijacking the president.

According to Rev. Owusu Bempah, these persons are able to turn contracts meant for some people to persons of their choice.

Ken Agyepong had also made similar allegations, saying that Mr Otchere-Darko and one Duke Ofori-Atta were using their positions at the Flagstaff House to engage in activities that could destroy the fortunes of the New Patriotic Party as well as dent the image of the President.

“The President should watch the people he has surrounded himself with….If NDC had been bold and condemned the likes of Ibrahim Mahama and Randy Abbey they wouldn’t have found themselves in opposition,” he said.

But Mr Otchere-Darko has denied the claims, saying that he does not work at the presidency to be able to sabotage anyone as being suggested.

“For the avoidance of doubt, I do not work at the Presidency and lack the luxury to hang around the President doing ‘kokonsa’.

“I run a law firm, Africa Legal Associates, Labone, where my job is to pursue the legal/corporate (legitimate) interests of my clients. That is my job. In fact, my only job. You may choose to hate. You may even choose to manufacture your own facts about me. But, that’s ok. It is part of life and part of being me, I guess. I accept,” he stated on his Facebook page.
