Mr. Muniru Abdul Rashid standing beside President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

Mr. Muniru Abdul Rashid, a Staffer at the Office of the President has debunked the persistent rumors of a Land cruiser V8 carrying the chair of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo anytime he makes trip to any part of the country.

For the records, he emphatically stated for a fact that, there’s no such LAND CRUISER solely for the carriage of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s Chair around the country.

According to him, the chair is always in one of the booth of the cars occupied by the President’s Closed Protection Officers (Personal Bodyguards) and certainly not as propagated.

“This i can say without any shred of doubt about Nana Addo’s chair, i don’t know about his predecessors’. I hope my good Prof finds this useful”.

The responds of the Presidential Staffer was in reaction to a Facebook post made by Prof Ransford Gyampo calling on the President to stop transporting his chair in a fully fueled airconditioned V8 in the midst of the present economic difficulties in the country.

But in his reaction on Facebook, Mr. Rashid said, “I’ve always ignored this issue thinking because it emanated from some NDC folks either because they’re ill-informed on presidential convoy or they’re just doing their usual propaganda with everything that come on their minds.”

“Prof Ransford Gyampo is one such astute gentleman I admire, respect and look up to; despite his sometimes hard hitting criticisms of our gov’t. So i was a bit taking aback when I chanced this post he made. As a great academic of his caliber, I don’t expect him to know everything so I will treat this as lack of insight into the security detailing in the president’s convoy” he added.

Mr. Muniru Abdul Rashid maintained that, “If care not taken in explaining this, one is most likely to expose the architecture and occupancy of the vehicles in the convoy”.

The presidential chair generated a lot of public commentary in the midst of the outbreak of COVID-19 with some arguing that it was meant to protect the President from contracting the disease and others reading spiritual meanings into the matter.

Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have also accused the government of wasting the taxpayers money in transporting the chair anytime the President is traveling to any part of the country. Gadafi
