Lordina-branded Chocolate Sparks Controversy

The decision by government to brand some ‘Golden Tree’ chocolate with the image of the First Lady, Lordina Mahama, has generated so much controversy on social media.

While some Ghanaians brand the move as a needless hero-worshipping action, others see it as waste of national resources particularly when the issue of the GH C3.6 million MMT rebranding scandal is still fresh on the minds of Ghanaians.

Even though, government has not officially commented on the issue, Presidential Aide, Stan Dogbe has vehemently defended the move saying, “there's nothing untoward, unnecessary, criminal or fraudulent about that”.
