I Am Sorry For What I Am Saying - Johnny Hughes Openly Apologizes To Akuffo-Addo [Details]

Popular Ghanaian now turned firebrand Journalist and host of TV3 NewDay show, Johnny Hughes has made a bold statement concerning the statement issued by the security agencies on the death of Kaaka, a social media activist and a member of the FixTheCountry campaign. The media guru has indicated that the kind of MCE's appointed by President Akuffo-Addo can be linked to the escalating issues of securities in our municipal assemblies.

His comment follows the recent death of Kaaka at Ejura, which later led to a military clash with the family and people of Ejura. The Ejura Committee of Enquiry has blamed his death on family feud rather than his activism. Recall, some military men stormed Ejura commmunity on the order of authority after it was alleged that the people wanted to burn the police station in the community. The altercation resulted in injuries and serious threats on the security of the town.

In the turn of events, it seems the recent statement has irked Johnny Hughes who has attributed the case to the competence of MCE's that are given appointment to head municipalities. He registered his disappointment over the way in which the now resigned MCE of Ejura handled the case and resigned.

On today's edition of the show, the broadcaster has stated in clear terms that the new set of appointees prove that the President failed to learn lessons from the aforementioned incident. According to him, the requirement for appointment should be tightened to absorb only competent and security-wise leaders to be leaders. He has called on Akuffo-Addo to 'learn' from his mistakes to ensure peace.

He said, "I am sorry for what I am saying. It seems we learnt nothing from this incident. I recently watched an MCE appointee reading his statement and I wondered how that person could protect his people. I could see he was not fit for the purpose."

He added, "I heard that some are even selected based on their commitment to the NPP. They do not care about your qualities whether you are a good leader or not. That behaviour will not help Ghana and must be stopped."
