Chiefs Deserve Respect At All Times- Ablakwa to Akufo Addo

Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has subtly slammed the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo for the gross disrespect shown to the Aflao Chief Torgbui Adzongaga Amenya Fiti V over John Mahama’s E-Blocks saga.

He has therefore taken to his official Facebook page to ask the first gentleman of the land to apologize to the chief and the people of Aflao for his condescending comments he made when he asked the chief to complete the E-Blocks started by his predecessor John Dramani Mahama.

The school is nearly 90% complete. It has 26 classrooms and five departments, including a science block, but construction has been halted since 2016. When Minority members of Parliament’s Education Committee visited the abandoned E-blocks in the Volta Region, the chief demanded that the area get its fair share of the national cake by finishing the project.

However, in response to the demand on Accra-based Peace FM on Thursday, the President asked sternly, “Is he the one going to give the Minister of Education an ultimatum?”

Samuel Okudzeto’s post as sighted on Facebook read;

Our revered chiefs and custodians of our proud traditions deserve utmost respect at all times regardless of which part of the country they exercise their authority.

The venerable Torgbui Adzongaga Amenya Fiti V and the people of Aflao deserve an immediate retraction and apology from President Akufo-Addo.

No chief anywhere in Ghana should be spoken to with such derision, disrespect, and condescension.

Torgbui Fiti V rather deserves commendation for his courage in speaking out against the reckless wasteful culture of abandoning inherited projects.

We are one people united in our collective successes and challenges; intemperate language from the President who ordinarily should be strengthening national cohesion with his pronouncements ought to be condemned by all well-meaning Ghanaians.
