The founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Maame Akua Donkor has lamented over the failure of government to invite her to the parade to mark Ghana’s 60 anniversary held at the Independence Square in Accra Monday.
According to her, President Akufo-Addo’s government has neglected her and the All People’s Congress (APC) flagbearer, Hassan Ayariga.
“I wanted to find out if I was invited to the program. When I saw the invitation list, the president didn’t invite me and Hassan Ayariga,” she said.
Madam Akua Donkor was regular at all state functions during the erstwhile Mahama administration but since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) took over power after the December polls, the failed presidential hopeful has never made it to any state organised event.
The female politician in an interview on Adom FM blamed the Akufo-Addo government for her absence at state functions.
She stressed that despite the President adopting most of her policies, he still ‘hates’ her hence his failure to invite her to state functions.
Akua Donkor revealed that the independence parade is the third function she has been denied invitation and therefore promised to boycott all gatherings by the NPP government until she gets a formal invitation.
“At the 2017 budget reading, I was not permitted entry and this is not the first time these people are doing that to me after taking over power.
“I didn’t go because I wasn’t invited. I think he even wishes me dead. He adopted my policies that I intended to implement when I am given the chance to govern the country. Am I not part of the leaders in this country? …” she asked rhetorically.
