The Office of the President has vehemently denied recent claims made by Mr. Charles Owusu regarding the alleged departure of seventy-seven (77) security personnel from Jubilee House due to perceived “unfair treatment.” Mr Owusu’s statements, made during an appearance on Peace FM’s studios on Friday, September 1, 2023, have sparked controversy and raised questions about the working conditions of security personnel at the presidential seat.
According to Mr. Owusu, “Go to Jubilee House and see the Police, Soldiers, and everyone is complaining. It got to a point where almost seventy-seven security personnel decided to leave Jubilee House and go back to their units… What type of treatment are you giving them?”
However, the Office of the President has categorically refuted these claims, stating that there is no record of seventy-seven security personnel departing Jubilee House due to “unfair treatment” during President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s tenure, which began in 2017 and continues to the present day.
In a formal statement released by the Office of the President, Mr. Owusu was criticized for failing to provide any supporting evidence for his assertions. The statement emphasized that any security personnel who have left Jubilee House did so either as a result of disciplinary measures or voluntary decisions made by the individuals themselves.
The Office of the President has urged the public to dismiss these allegations, considering them baseless and unsupported by any factual evidence. It has called on the public to treat Mr Owusu’s claims with the contempt they deserve.
