A communication member of the New Patriotic Party in the Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency of the Western Region, Mr. Timothy Gariba has rendered an unqualified apology to Presidential Staffer and Western Region Secretary of the NPP, Mr. Charles Bissue.
Mr. Timothy Gariba is on record to have rained unrepeatable insults to Mr. Charles Bissue and even went ahead to threaten his life.
The audio which went viral was reported by several media outlets in the country. Mr. Charles Bissue who was offended by the insults dragged Timothy Gariba to court to redeem his image.
After several appearances, the family of Timothy Gariba pleaded for an out-of-court settlement. Finality was brought to the case at the palace of Nana Kobina Nketsia V on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
Timothy Gariba rendered an apology to Mr. Charles Bissue and expressed regret for tarnishing his image. A remorseful-looking Timothy Gariba added that everything he said against Charles Bissue were lies and asked for forgiveness.
Traditional authorities pouring libation
“I Gariba Timothy, from the Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency do apologize to Mr. Charles Bissue for all the lies I have peddled against him in the social media. I’m here to apologize and ask for forgiveness. I promise that I will never do such a thing in my life to any other person again. Kindly forgive me for I regret tarnishing your hard-earned image. Once again I’m very sorry”. Mr. Gariba appealed.
In response, Mr. Charles Bissue accepted the apology and advised that politics must be done without insults. He says there are structures in the NPP to deal with such issues and insults must never be an option.
“We are all working for the party. But mostly, people insult in the name of politics. It’s not the best to rain insults on elders with no basis to the extent of even threatening their lives. That should not be the case in our politics. If a party member offends you, there are laid down procedures to follow but if you decide to insult, then people will even go to the extent of insulting the President”. He noted.

“I will advise all party members to be guided that politics is not about insults. This should not happen in our generation. I have forgiven him, but everyone must know there are rules that govern the NPP”. He noted.
