Ghana President Bans Ministers, Officials From Traveling Till Further Notice
Ghana's President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has halted
all minister of state and government authorities from voyaging abroad until further notice.

The order was issued in a press explanation marked by head of staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare#
and warned that only foreign affairs and regional integration minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchway would be allowed to travel.

The reason behind the temporary ban remains unclear but it is believed that continual travel by government officials was disrupting its domestic work.

It also follows concerns raised that there was a culture among government ministers and officials of preferring to travel around the world instead of staying in their offices and working.


This led to a former deputy CEO of the Ghana Tourism Development Company resigning because her superiors were traveling too much.

Ohenea Akua Manfo, also known as Akua Blakofe, fumed that her boss, Kojo Antwi, preferred to travel abroad regularly and pocket travel allowances rather than work.
