The former seat of government, Christianborg Castle in Osu, Accra, is a museum and not a security installation, the Museums and Monuments Board has said.

According to the Board, on 5 March 2017, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo publicly declared and inaugurated the Osu Castle as a presidential museum of leadership and governance.

“The Osu Castle, since then, has, and to date, remains a museum,” the Board said in a statement signed by the Acting Executive Director, Kingsley Ofosu Ntiamoah.

The statement added that the “Osu Castle is not a security installation”, explaining that: “The military and security sensitiveness associated with it have since been withdrawn” and now has a similar status as the Cape Coast and Elmina castles.

The Board said visitors, tourists and the general public are allowed to visit the castle as and when they please.

The statement comes on the back of an exposé by investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni that the former seat of government was being used to camp and train a pro-government militia group known as De-Eye.

The exposé referred to the Osu Castle as a “security zone” and an annex to the Jubilee House. The government, however, has insisted that the edifice is no longer a security zone.
