Twitter has been buzzing since the promotion of Jake Bediako to the role of Presidential Coordinator for Youth Engagement and Strategy at the Office of the President.
Many Ghanaians have wondered what exactly that role entails and have concluded that it’s just an opaque role created to satisfy family and cronies of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

But in defense of Jake, Aku Akuffo, a legal practitioner and a niece of President Akufo-Addo said Ghanaians have no ‘right’ to question the appointment.
She alluded to the fact that Mr. Bediako is overly qualified with two degrees from Ivy League schools.
In a post on Instagram, she compared Ho Poly to the Ivy League schools and Ghanaians are having none of it.

Low key a lot of people feel someway when our friends or sb tells us they’re products of Technical Universities. I don’t blame Aku Akuffo for her words. I blame her parents. They did well in grooming her for life but failed to teach her how to appreciate others’ background.

Any Ho poly student or ex student aka legon, knust, winneba , upsa , gij etc who makes any effort to defend Aku Akuffo should really examine their conscience
