In a statement, the Presidency denied allegations that security guards stationed at Jubilee House, Ghana’s presidential mansion, were treated unfairly.
According to rumored allegations, security employees left their duties after receiving allegedly abusive treatment.
These assertions are refuted and called incorrect in a letter dated September 3 and signed by the director of communications, Eugene Arhin. The statement highlighted that there is no proof to back up the claim that 77 security guards left Jubilee House as a result of unfair treatment.
“The Office of the President would like to state for the record that, from 2017 to the present, not once has Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ordered the departure of any of the 77 security personnel stationed at Jubilee House for their assigned units. No security guard has actually quit Jubilee House due to “unfair treatment” they received there as the presidential residence. Curiously, Mr. Owusu didn’t offer any support for these untrue statements at any point in his submissions.
The statement continued by stating that any security guards who had left Jubilee House did so willingly or for disciplinary reasons.
The fact that any security officer has departed Jubilee House has either been because of disciplinary action taken against them or because they voluntarily chose to do so must be emphasized. We kindly request that the public ignore these untrue assertions and treat them with the disdain they so richly deserve.
