Apologize: UK demonstrators to Prez. Mahama

By on

UK-Demo-Ghanaians-620x330A group calling itself concerned Ghanaians in the United Kingdom want President John Mahama to apologize to them over some comments he allegedly made during a visit to the country.

The Public Affairs Director of the group, Nana Ansah Obofour on the Eye Witness News said President Mahama during an interaction with the Ghanaian community in the UK told them that “Ghana’s economy was doing very well, there are jobs, infrastructure development, there are lights there are water and there is nothing which shows that the economy is bad.”

He said the president further advised them that “when they [relatives] call us [from Ghana] and they tell us that the economy is bad they want to dupe us.”

The comment according to Obofour is “offensive” and “insulting” because the president painted a wrong picture of the economy to them, hence the need to apologize.

He questioned why the president said that saying “even if at all if I support my relative back home in Ghana is it the concern of the president?”

Meanwhile, the group on Thursday demonstrate against President Mahama in London over what they call worsening economic conditions in Ghana.

In a related development about twelve labour unions in Ghana have declared an indefinite strike action to protest government’s failure to pay public service workers their tier two pension funds into a private account.
