Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Minority’s Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, is not persuaded by the apology from George Ayisi Boateng, the Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, declaring a partiality towards New Patriotic Party (NPP) members in his dealings publically.
Mr. Ablakwa while talking to media channel suggested that Mr. Ayisi Boateng was in pressured into apologizing by his superiors.
After Ayisi Boateng’s initial comments, apology came almost three days later, when Ghanaians came into anger.
He also said there was nothing wrong putting his party and its members first, defending his initial comments.
Some key officials of the NPP, particularly acting Chairman Freddie Blay, had suggested that Mr. Ayisi Boateng’s comments may have been taken out of context.
Mr. Ablakwa said that even after 48 hours, when he had the chance to be a sign of, he said he had done nothing wrong and he remained proud. From what we hear, he was called by his superiors, the Flagstaff House and he appears to have been forced to issue this apology letter.
MP, the Minority North Tongu, said the Minority is also going to meet and decide on its next course of action. They will be meeting [Thursday morning] and they will consider all the circumstances, and they will convey their final decision to the general public.
The Minority had held that Mr. Ayisi Boateng’s comments were in the depths of despair, shameful. They also blamed the President Nana Akufo-Addo for ignoring the High Commissioner’s racism.
