The British High Commissioner to Ghana Jon Benjamin has strongly rejected claims that he’s doing the bidding of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, he does not support any party not even in his country let alone in Ghana.
Some members of the opposition New Patriotic Party have launched a scathing attack on the blunt diplomat on social media after he denied allegations that the NDC’s Central regional chairman Benjamin Allotey Jacobs had been arrested in the UK for drug and money laundering offences.
He has been heavily criticized for being quick at interfering in the internal politics of Ghana, with some even tweeting at the handle of the British Home secretary for international affairs asking him to re-post Mr. Benjamin.
But Mr Benjamin in a tweet has cleared himself of any wrongdoing and accusation saying “I absolutely don’t have a party, not in the UK let alone here. I’m neutral”.
