Member of Parliament for Nsawam Adoagyiri Hon. Frank Annoh Dompreh has apologised for calling #FixTheCountry country campaigners “Gyimie”.
The MP in a tweet described the campaigners as fools for not working on themselves and being unpatriotic to the country in several ways.
But in a quick response, Hon, Dompreh claimed ge wasn’t aware of the tweet and blamed it on his handlers. He however admitted that it was a mistake and said he will apologise.
“I just saw the post by my handlers, the Appropriate thing would be done ASAP…. grateful,” he tweeted.
The MP admitted that his earlier tweet downplayed the difficulty of the times we are in and he apologised for that.
Read his full apology below:
I would like to apologise for an earlier tweet which failed to convey both seriousness of the times and to capture the essence of what the youth is demanding.
Throughout my time in public office, I have always known that collective action and responsibility are important.
However, I also believe that ultimate responsibility lies with the hierarchy of government. This is why as MP, I have always strived to use public office to make life better for my constituents. It is also why I cannot in good conscience endorse any message of fingerpointing while ignoring the climate of holding the arms of gov’t accountable.
In that spirit, I would urge us all to sustain our efforts to demand accountability. I believe in the leadership of H.E @nakufoaddo & I’m confident that the responsible and responsive leadership he has displayed since 2017, will prevail. We shall succeed in making Ghana a better place.
