The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho, has snubbed assertions by Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, son of Ghana’s first President, that President John Evans Atta Mills is discriminatory and not “a father of all” as he claims.

Dr. Nkrumah’s comments follow his exclusion from a trip to the AU Summit in Ethiopia, where his late father, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is to be honored and a statute of him, unveiled at the forecourt of the newly constructed AU building.

His siblings, Dr. Francis Nkrumah and Samia Nkrumah, have been invited to join the president on the trip. Mr. Anyidoho told Citi News, the President did nothing wrong by not inviting Dr. Nkrumah.

According to Anyidoho, “President Mills or for that matter the government has decided on Dr. Francis Nkrumah, he is the first son of President Nkrumah. Samia Nkrumah managed to work herself up the ladder, she is the chairperson of her father’s party today as we speak, the only Member of Parliament for her father’s party in Ghana’s Parliament and so between Dr. Francis Nkrumah and Samia, they deserve to be here and the president appreciated the fact that they have honoured the invitation and they would be here. ”

Meanwhile, President Mills will leave Accra on Friday for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to attend the 18th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Governments of the African Union.

The President will deliver the keynote address on the theme “Boosting Intra-African Trade”. He is expected to return home on Tuesday, January 31, 2012.
