Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram constituency, Sam Nartey George, has berated the First Lady of the Republic, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, for what he describes as her failure to live up to the expectations of her people.

When asked if he has an issue with the First Lady Sam George simply said “We’re disappointed in her. She’s a daughter of Ningo…she’s spited her own hometown…”
