Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has chastised President Akufo-Addo over his comments on the Russian mercenary group Wagner in Washington.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo did not exercise good judgment in his comments.

Mr Iddrisu said the President who had previously served as a Foreign Affairs and Attorney General ought not to be making such “irresponsible and unprofessional” comments.

The Tamale South lawmaker said the comments could have dire repercussions on the country should Russia decide to take an action against it.

Speaking at the NDC Congress on Saturday, Mr Iddrisu disclosed that the Minority will demand a detailed briefing on his comments.

“As we address this Congress, President Akufo-Addo has not only failed by creating an economic mess, he has also gone ahead to create what you call a foreign policy crisis.
