Reactions from the public to the response Nana Addo gave to the demand made by the Paramount Chief of Afloa, Torgbe Fati has been massive. Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress especially have come to the defense of the Chief, saying the demand made by Torgbe Fati that the Minister of Education should have the E-block school in his traditional area completed before the beginning of the next academic year. Various key personalities including journalists, politicians, traditional leaders among others have condemned the President for such a response.
Honorable Okudzeto Ablakwa, in an interview with TV3, said the president should retract the comments and render an unqualified apology to the Chief. To the North Tongu legislator, what the Chief said is not out of the ordinary, as Chiefs all over the country, make demands of politicians for developmental projects for their traditional areas. Anti-corruption campaigner, Captain Smart, on his Maakye Morning Show on Onua TV, also described as unfortunate what the President said to Torgbe Fati. To him, Nana Addo could not have said the same thing to the Ashantehene if he had asked for the Afari Hospital to be completed.
Moreso, United States of America-based social activist, Kelvin Taylor also waded into the controversy. To him, it is not out of place for a Chief to ask for his traditional area to be given a fair share of the national cake. He continued that, Nana Addo could not have said what he said to the Afloa Chief to the Okyehene if he had made the same demand of him.
But the tables seem to be turning against Torgbe Fati as a comment he made about John Dramani Mahama when Nana Addo visited him in the run-up to the 2020 Elections surfaces online. According to the statement, Torgbe Fati praised Nana Addo for reviving the economy that according to him, Mahama had collapsed. Various pro-NDC groups on social media have begun to descend on Torgbe Fati as they say it saves him right.
