“Archbishop, this identify-contacting seems to be a characteristic of Ghanaian community lifestyle. But often, when things appear out, we would hope that you will remark on them. The remark manufactured by my opponent, “Akyem Sakawa folks,” I have not listened to any public determine, impartial individual, yourselves, remark on it. It is entirely unacceptable. If I had been to get up to make feedback about Northerners or Gonjas, you can envision the uproar that would be in the country.
“Presidential applicant, a former President of Ghana, you can get in touch with a group of Ghanaians “sakawa people”, and it requires the group for which the sitting down President will come, and that assertion goes with no remark, and at the exact same time we listen to all these statements, let all try out and bring the politics of insults to an stop,” the President bemoaned.
On the other hand reacting to remark, the NDC flagbearer stated he will be the past particular person to assault any ethnic team.
“I can have an understanding of President Akufo-Addo’s annoyance, desperation and deliberate tries to whip up ethnic sentiments, but that will not clean. I will be the last man or woman to assault any ethnic team in this state. I shared a write-up of Hon Adongo who explained specific people today in Akufo-Addo’s authorities as “Akyem Sakawa Boys”.
“My national chairman is an Akyem. The head of our manifesto committee is an Akyem, so how can I make these a standard remark. I assume Akufo-Addo is just displaying his annoyance,” he informed Television set XYZ Saturday.
