The National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) has apologised to the listeners of Accra-based Asempa FM and Ghanaians in general, for an altercation that occurred between him and the National Communication Officer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Friday, 1 February 2019.
A video has gone viral on social media which captured Nana B pushing Mr Gyamfi’s head during a charged moment on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen political talk show.
Below is Nana B’s full apology statement:
APOLOGY TO ASEMPA FM LISTENERS AND GHANAIANS
I refer to the events which took place yesterday on Asempa FM’s Political Talk Show, ‘Ekosii Sen’.
Regardless of the repulsive, provocative conduct by the NDC’s National Communication Director on the show, which included unacceptable verbal attacks on the President and myself, I am, upon sober reflection, apologising to listeners of Asempa FM and Ghanaians for the manner in which I responded.
I wish to assure all that I remain committed to decent, issue-based discourse on our airwaves and that this unfortunate incident will not be repeated.
I will also encourage my junior brother, Sammy Gyamfi, to be decorous and respectful in his public utterances during such engagements, and, to, at all times, respect the high office of the President.
Henry Nana Boakye
National Youth Organiser,
New Patriotic Party.
