She had earlier been convicted and remanded, waiting to be sentenced .
However, A Plus reacting in a Facebook post, accused the Office of the President of spending GHC 1, 980, 025.23 on refreshments in 2019.
In his post, he wrote;
” In 2019 alone, though this poor country called Ghana has a presidential jet, we spent GHC62,578,224 sis hundred and twenty billion, five hundred and seventy eight million, two and twenty four old Ghana cedis on foreign travels and related expenses in just nine months. The same year, the office of the president of this poor country which runs to IMF and the world bank now and then for loans spent GHC1,980,025.23 on refreshment only. Multiply the aforementioned figures by four years and it will give you an idea of how much we have wasted in 64 years. I’m not blaming NDC or NPP. I’m talking about the system; where necessary I will use any of them and set examples”
