I've never been part of Mahama's "Kitchen Cabinet"

Dr. Randy Abbey, the host of Good Morning Ghana, has unequivocally refuted allegations of his involvement in a purported ‘Kitchen Cabinet’ during the John Dramani Mahama administration. The alleged cabinet was rumored to consist of close allies who held sway in influencing crucial decisions within the government. The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, initially made these claims, which were revisited on the December 8, 2023 edition of the Good Morning Ghana show.

In response to the resurfaced allegations, Dr. Randy Abbey firmly denied any association with the rumored ‘Kitchen Cabinet.’ He emphasized the lack of truth in the claims and took a moment to clarify that the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, was not in office at the time the statements were initially made. Dr. Randy Abbey’s denial adds a layer of clarity to the ongoing discussion surrounding his alleged involvement.

The controversy surrounding Dr. Randy Abbey’s alleged role in the ‘Kitchen Cabinet’ took center stage on the Good Morning Ghana show, with Nana Akomea, the Managing Director of STC, reiterating the claims. The discussion showcased varying perspectives, with different panelists offering their insights on the matter. It is evident that the allegations continue to spark contrasting views among those involved in the discourse.

During the discussion on the show, Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, came to the defense of Speaker Alban Bagbin. In a brief but significant intervention, Ablakwa stood by the Speaker, reinforcing the importance of context and accuracy in discussions surrounding individuals’ roles in past administrations.


Nana Akomea: You are in the ‘Kitchen Cabinet’ No?

Randy Abbey: No, I’m not!

Nana Akomea: You have left?

Randy Abbey: No, I have not, I’ve never been there.

Akomea: You have been there!


Randy Abbey: Never, never!

Akomea: But Alban Bagbin said you are there?

Randy Abbey: He was lying, he lied, oh yeah, yeah, he did! He lied and he knows he lied.

Akomea: But you didn’t tell him?

Randy: I didn’t have to.


Ablakwa: It was probably a slip a tongue… I think we can put it better.

Akomea: But it wasn’t a slip of tongue.

Ablakwa: It was a little slip of tongue.

Akomea: No, the man made a statement! How can a statement be a slip of tongue?

Ablakwa: He’s the Right Honorable Speaker


Randy: When he said that he wasn’t speaker… I’m sure that now he won’t say this.

Akomea: But why didn’t you tell him that wasn’t the truth

Randy: He didn’t speak to me, I addressed the issue publicly and that was it.

Akomea: You did?

Randy: Yes, I did!


Akomea: So you’re actually not part of the ‘Kitchen Cabinet’?

Randy: I have never ever been part.
