Check Out Ayariga's Brilliant Reply When Asked If JM Will Apologize For Pre-Election Large Rallies

Many have raised concerns about the disregard for Covid-19 safety protocols during the final funeral rites of the late former General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party. Many have said that the country’s big wigs need to be held accountable for what happened. Today, Tuesday, June 8, 2021 GHToday’, Serwaa Amihere put the issue before his panelists. 

There is pressure currently on President Akufo-Addo to apologize for making laws to enforce Covid-19 protocols and yet still blatantly disregard those laws. On the show, Mahama Ayariga also called on President Akufo-Addo to apologize.

“If we ask the president to apologize is not asking for much. When it happened before the elections people were arrested and prosecuted. Asking the president to apologize is the minimum we can ask him to do. It is just a public gesture that he admits that he was wrong” the Bawku Central MP said.

However, Serwaa felt this also means that the NDC should also apologize for similar rallies. “If we ask for the NDC to apologize for holding the campaigns before the elections, will you apologize? I apologize. I apologize on behalf of the NDC. We apologize. It is a simple thing. Even if they are not the organizers, it is symbolic that he apologizes to show that we yet haven’t won the battle against Covid-19” Mahama Ayariga said.

Serwaa insisted that her team are also asking for John Mahama to also publicly apologize personally for the campaigns he held before the elections. She insisted that the apology they wanted is to be from John Mahama and not from his representatives. She was of the view that since some elements in the NDC expect Akufo-Addo to apologize, this means John Mahama should also apologize personally.

“I apologize on behalf of the flagbearer. I was with him during the campaign and he took steps to respect the protocols. Yet, it was not in all the instances that he could have managed the process to ensure that protocols were applied. I have apologized so let the President also apologize” Mahama Ayariga said simply said
