Ghana’s ambassador to South Africa, George Ayisi-Boateng, has rendered an unqualified apology to Ghanaians after he passed comments that only party members and not the entire populace are his priority.
Speaking candidly with members of TESCON (the NPP’s Tertiary Students Network), Ayisi-Boateng had said that as ambassador, he would only look after NPP people and Ghanaians just have to ‘take it or leave it’.
The comments have sparked a firestorm amid calls for the ambasaddor to resign, but he has only issued a public apology after meeting party officials.
“I have upon sober reflection, decided to to retract the comments I made during my interaction with some members of the New Patriotic Party, NPP in the Ashanti Region over the weekend.” the statement read, in part.
“I have realized that my statement is unfortunate and at variance with the letter and spirit of the Ghanaian constitution and the dignified office of the High Commission that I occupy.
“I therefore wish to retract my comments and render an unqualified apology to the presidency and all Ghanaians,”
