Ghanaian Youths Pounce On KT Hammond For ‘Disrespecting’ Them

If I watched Black Stars, I would have died - KT <a class=Hammond"/>

Ghanaian Youth on social media are livid over some disparaging comments made by Member of Parliament (MP) for Adansi Asokwa, Kobina Tahir Hammond.

Mr K.T Hammond while speaking to the press about the recent booing incident President Akufo-Addo was subjected to at the Global Citizen Festival said the youth in Ghana have nothing in their ‘Coconut heads and for that matter unfit to govern the country.

"Let it even be a political rally, but it is not a political rally….You must be patient, when you meet and are doing your things, accord respect to the elderly. Not that because of politics you go abusing people”, he told reporters.

"It's not possible for government to be left to the youth, you cannot do it, you won't understand. You have all left your beards, and have been roaming town but there is nothing in your head", he added.

But these comments have infuriated the youth who have taken to social media to express their angst against the Adansi Asokwa MP.

A Sports Journalist with Angel Broadcasting Limited, Saddick Adams says people like KT Hammond must be living in fool’s paradise to think that the youth in Ghana are aimless and cannot govern the country better.

"KT Hammond is quoting some 12th century proverb to impugn that young people are empty-headed. Some of these old men think the youth are just aimless and thus parliament and other offices must be occupied by grey-hairs. Yet they'd go and kneel before Emmanuel Macron for loans", Saddick Adams tweeted.

Another Twerp, Austine Woode (@obiMpenaAustine) bemoaned KT Hammond and other Ghanaian leaders' lack of respect for the youth in the country.

He also tweeted "Lawyer Okudzeto and KT Hammond deɛ dem never dey respect the youth of Ghana ooo. They think we have even had it easy to even have a say in national discussions. Left to them, some 24 elders in a room should make every decision about Ghana for the 30.8m of all of us".

Yaw Eduful (@yaw_eduful_) also says "In fact, I think it's time some of our leaders begin to respect we the youth of this country. What is this from KT Hammond?”

Rex Socius Amicusque (@RexTrajan1) described Mr KT Hammond’s assertions that the youth are not capable of governing the country as “funny”.

“KT Hammond dey talk sey youth no fit run this country dey funny me. If you see how our nation is run, it is absolutely embarrassing for our so called leaders cos the answers are painfully obvious. They just can't stop themselves from making dumb decisions after dumb decisions”.
