Flagstaff House name change waste of resources – Kofi Adams

National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has described as waste of resources government’s decision to change the name of the seat of government from Flagstaff House to Jubilee House.

In a statement issued by the Presidency on Thursday, President Akufo-Addo said the name of the seat of government had never been “Flagstaff House” as being purported in publications.

He said, Flagstaff House was rather a separate residential building located at the seat of government.

“Flagstaff House is a separate property located on the premises of the Jubilee House… whereas there is no record evidencing the renaming of the seat of the Presidency as Flagstaff House by His Excellency Professor John Evans Atta Mills, the 3rd President of the 4th Republic, in purported exercise of his executive authority,” he said.

Akufo-Addo’s statement contradicts already existing media reports that President John Atta-Mills had named the facility Flagstaff House from Jubilee House, despite receiving harsh criticisms from a section of the public who said the name was symbolic of Ghana’s oppression from colonialists.

But speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, Mr Adams said government’s explanation following the renaming of the seat is bogus and should be take with a pinch of salt.

“How can a government which has failed to manage the economy just wake up and change Flagstaff house. I think it’s just a waste of resources. They should think about the economy and what they can do to develop the country because this is just a waste of time” he said.
