Segbefia blasts Daily Guide

A Deputy Chief of Staff, Hon. Alex Segbefia has condemned Daily Guide's story headlined 'NDC Gurus Fly Out - In Chartered Plane'.

The paper reported that the NDC appointees and officials went on a spending spree, with the state picking up the bills.

In an interview with Peace FM's Kokrokoo Morning Show, he said some journalists in the country are bias and their reports unprofessional.

The paper added that about 20 leading members of the NDC, including the Minister of Youth and Sports, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, had been flown out in a chartered flight for the Ivorian capital, Abidjan to witness the local Black Stars' final match with their Congolese counterparts.

But Hon. Segbefia said the trip was sponsored by a private individual, not the government.

He confirmed there were about 40 people in the Ghana Armed-Forces plane including pressmen and sports experts.

When the host, Kwami Sefa-Kayi asked him which private individual sponsored the trip, Mr. Segbefia said he was not in a position to reveal the sponsor on air so he cannot tell Peace FM.
