Member of Parliament for Builsa South in the Upper East region, Clement Apaak has berated State Protocol for what he says is the â€œdespicable attempt to malignâ€ former President John Dramani Mahama.
He was reacting to the fuss about the absence of the former President at last Fridayâ€™s Independence celebrations at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
In a post on Facebook Mr Apaak wrote:â€State Protocol knew full well that JM was not going to be at the 63rd independence day celebration in Kumasi. So why a seat for him, tagged with his name?â€
He said the State protocol owed former President Mahama an unqualified apology for the the mischief.
Below is the full post
Folks, State Protocol owes JM an unqualified apology for the despicable attempt to malign him. A failure to apologise will mean:
1) State Protocol has been turned into an NPP partisan political outfit or
2) State Protocol has allowed itself to be used for dirty NPP partisan politics.
State Protocol knew full well that JM was not going to be at the 63rd independence day celebration in Kumasi. So why a seat for him, tagged with his name?
I remain a citizen.
Dr. Clement Apaak
