President Akufo-Addo's apparent gaffe in his interview with Peace FM is still a raging controversy, as many have turned their attention to the quality of question asked by the interviewer, Kwame Sefa Kaye.
Apparently, it was the question and the follow-up question by the host of the show that infuriated the President, which eventually solicited that cheeky response.
A relook at the original comment by the Chief of Aflao shows that, at no point, did the traditional leader gave the minister of education or the President and ultimatum.
The mention of next year February was in relation to the time secondary schools are supposed to reopen. He was therefore hoping the ministry of education would complete the school by that time.
However, during the interview, Kwame Sefa Kaye goofed by placing the Chief's plea before the President as a command.
Even though the President had no right to reply in the manner he did, and a Presidential indiscretion took the better part of him, the false representation of what the chief said misled the President.
It was an immature and indiscreet answer to an unprofessional journalistic conduct.
Meanwhile, pressure is mounting on the President to retract his comment and apologise to the Chief and good people of Aflao. So far, more than 24hrs after the infamous retort, no sign of any regret by the President.
Apology is unlikely.
