The biggest opposition party in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has served warning to the Nana Addo government and Ghanaians that they will revert the name of the seat of government to Flagstaff House.
President Akufo-Addo announced that the name has been changed to Jubilee House in a communique to the press this morning.
The official seat of government was built by the NPP government under former President Kuffour and named Jubilee House. But upon winning power in 2009, the NDC government under the late Professor Evans Mills changed the name to Flagstaff House, the original name of place.
It was initially given the name Flagstaff House when Ghana’s first President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah re-developed it in the 1960s to serve as his official residence and office.
The NDC said in a tweet:
We have noted the renaming of the seat of government from Flagstaff House to Jubilee House. The name Jubilee House will be coterminous with the duration of Akufo-Addo’s presidency. For us, it is and will always be the Flagstaff House.
