It’s been weeks since the unfortunate incident at Ejura. The murder of Ibrahim Mohammed, popularly called Kaaka Macho led to a protest which eventually turned fatal. The incident caused a national uproar and caused President Akufo-Addo to instruct the Minister for Interior to create a committee to investigate the issue.
Last week on Good Morning Ghana, Nana Akomea made some comments about the incident that caused a lot of lambasting for the Director at the State Transport Corporation. The party guru was of the view that the “mere” death of Kaaka couldn’t have been the real reason for the riots in Ejura causing 2 deaths. The use of mere sounded offensive to many who felt Nana was trivializing the death of someone.
Today, Friday, July 16, 2021 on ‘Good Morning Ghana’, Nana Akomea returned to apologize for the comments he used.
According to Nana, the comments were unfortunate. He called on Ghanaians to forgive him for his choice of words. “I am sorry. I didn’t mean to give that impression” Nana Akomea said. Randy Abbey thanked him for apologizing to cool down tempers.
We all make mistakes and Nana Akomea though on that day sought to find other reasons for the Ejura riots, many Ghanaians felt this was a serious matter and not about parties. Nana had earlier corrected in a post on Facebook but used the opportunity to apologize on air. The Ejura Committee is still on their probe and many expect them to soon hand their recommendations to the Interior Minister and subsequently to the President.
