Akufo-Addo should have sacked Ayisi Boateng at once – Mahama

George Ayisi Boateng has apologised for his comments[/caption] Former President John Dramani Mahama is surprised Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi Boateng is still keeping his job after the partisan comments he made. Addressing teeming supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress in Cape Coast on Sunday, the former president indicated that President Nana Akufo-Addo is currently presiding over ‘Animal farm’ system of government. Mr. Ayisi Boateng was forced to apologise last week for saying that he will prioritize the needs of members of the governing New Patriotic Party over other Ghanaians. Government accepted the apology but the opposition NDC rejected it. Mr. Mahama also waded into the controversy and asked the president to also reject the apology and sack the High Commissioner. The former president who joined his party’s unity walk said: “When you are appointed as a High Commissioner and then you swear an oath of allegiance to the Constitution of Ghana and the Constitution of Ghana says: ‘There shall be no discrimination, and that you shall do justice to all manner of persons, that’s what the constitution of Ghana says, then you come and say – have you read animal Farm before? – It says all animals are equal – that’s how they started when they did the revolution. Then when Napoleon and the pigs started enjoying, they had to justify why they were enjoying, and, so, they said: ‘All animals are equal but some are more equal than others’. “When they [NPP] were looking for your vote, I remember President Akufo-Addo said: ‘We shall open opportunities of this country to all Ghanaians irrespective of your party or your ethnic affiliation’. Do you remember he said that? So we did the revolution and he came to power, now that the pigs are enjoying they say: ‘Some Ghanaians are more Ghanaian than others’. “I mean for something like this, you don’t call the person to the Flagstaff House, draft an apology letter for him and ask him to sign; you sack him at once. And you even read the apology letter and it’s an apology of apology. He says: ‘To apologise for the effect of my words, not apologise for my words’, and that is the new government under which we are.” Meanwhile, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Ade Coker has asked Mr. Ayisi Boateng to resign by Monday.
