We have not paid for Oslo property – Ayorkor Botchwey

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has denied that, any payment has been made for a Chancery and place of residence for Ghana’s Ambassador to Norway.

In a statement, the ministry said discussions are still underway in connection with the planned purchase of the property, which has generated some confusion with the minority in parliament.


This comes after the sector minister, Ms Shirley Oyorkor Botchwey had a heated exchange with the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa within the corridors of parliament on Monday, 17 December 2018 over the price of the building.

The Minority alleged that the government had inflated the cost ($12 million) of the six-bedroom property.
