NPP supporter Hajia Fati, who recently slapped a journalist and justified it by claiming she looked like an ‘onion seller’, has apologized for her actions.
Speaking at the Party’s headquarters Wednesday, where the assault took place, Fati said she was on her knees and begging for forgiveness from all involved.
“I apologise to the leadership and rank of the NPP, I apologise to Sammy Awuku, I beg all journalists, what happened was a mistake, it wasn’t intentional.” she said.
“I’m here today to appeal to all pressmen, I’m on my knees begging you people, what happened was a mistake, please you people should forgive me, I’m on my knees”.
Her apology follows widespread condemnation for her abominable act, including a statement from her own party disowning her actions.
Fati slapped Adom Fm reporter Ohemaa Sekyiwaa last Friday at the NPP headquarters where she was covering an event. Fati was unhappy that Ohemaa took some photos of her and landed a dirty slap on her.
In the aftermath of the incident, she doubled down on her actions, going on the offensive and claiming Ohemaa didn’t look like a journalist but rather resembled an ‘onion seller’.
