Ghana: President Addo sanctions foreign travels by officials

  • 25-06-2018


    Ghanaian president, Nana Akufo-Addo has banned all officials of his government except the ministers of foreign affairs and regional integration from foreign travels.
    A statement from the government failed to state why the temporary ban was imposed.
    The last time a similar travel restriction for government officials was imposed was in December 2015 under the government of John Mahama where he banned public officials from first-class air travel as part of efforts to cut wasteful spending.
    Some officials in government have had the cause to complain about incessant travels of some appointees who in most cases are unable to justify why they travelled outside the country.
    Joining us on the line from Accra with more details on the latest travel ban by the government is journalist, Prince Appiah.
