Former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko says has made a sterling revelation of his relationship with President Akufo-Addo.

According to him, relationship between him and the President is not that good but that his decision not to be on talking terms with the President is not based on hatred but rather he has learned to move on with his life.

“I do not have a relationship with him [President Akufo-Addo] now. No, I don’t. People get married for thirty years and they get divorced, don’t they? Not because of hatred.”

He said: “Me, I will never let anybody bring me so low as to hate him. I don’t hate anybody, but there comes a time when circumstances make it that you go your way, you have to move on,” he said on Ekosii Sen on Monday, June 20.

He revealed that, the last time he spoke to President Akufo-Addo face-to-face was over a year ago and that, “I was called by the Chief of Staff and she said that the President said he cannot work with me again. I said that is fine and I moved.”

Mr Agyarko who said he is currently focused on his presidential ambition, pointed out that he is not ready to accept any appointment from the President at this stage.

In August 2018, Mr Agyarko was dismissed by President Akufo-Addo following revelations that the renegotiated AMERI deal was fraught with corruption.
