Akufo-Addo Must Retract And Apologise
THE New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate for 2012, Nana Akufo-Addo must retract and render an unconditional apology to the family of the late Theresa Tagoe and Volta Hall ladies, both past and present for his unguarded remarks about the Hall. Nana in a tribute to the late Theresa Tagoe, an alumni of University of Ghana over the weekend, described Volta Hall as a cynosure of healthy strong men .This statement has been described as unfortunate especially since it was made by no mean a person than someone aspiring to the highest office of the land. Female students from University of Ghana are not happy and are calling for the NPP leader to retract the statement and apologise. In Nana’s attempt to tell the whole world how well he knew the late Theresa Tagoe, former NPP member of Parliament and Minister of State in the Kufuor-led administration, he ended up disgracing and insulting the deceased and womanhood. The honourable thing for Nana to do now is to retract and apologise to the family of the late Theresa Tagoe and Ghanaian women for his derogatory remarks. It is significant to note that a lot of former female students of Volta Hall have occupied key positions in the country or are still occupying these positions and contributing significantly to the nation’s socio-economic development. These women are our cherished mothers and sisters who we respect a lot and therefore any attempt to drag their hard won reputation into disrepute must be condemned.It is time our leaders learn what is meant for public consumption and what is not.
