Adansi Asokwa Member of Parliament Kwabena Tahir (KT) Hammond has condemned the booing of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Global Citizens Festival in Accra on Saturday September 24.

He described the situation as scandalous.

“That was scandalous. I don’t think that, as a nation, we’ve gotten to that stage. I was petrified when I heard that.

“I didn’t understand it. I haven’t seen anything of this sort before. We shouldn’t be setting precedents that cannot be handled.

“Whatever the issue is, people have no business hooting at the President. There should be some respect because that isn’t democratic,” he journalists on Tuesday, September 27.

Mr Akufo-Addo during the event delivered a keynote address amidst jeering from the crowd.

He spoke about the government of Ghana’s involvement in eradicating poverty and upholding national unity.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I extend a hearty Akwaaba, our word of welcome, from a very hospitable people. To all of you, who have come from afar and wide, to our vibrant city of Accra, Ghana’s capital, to join us on this great occasion,” the President said at the event amidst the heckling.
