You Are The Intelligent One, I Am Just A Villager – NDC MP Tells NPP Communicator On Live TV

It was a hilarious as well as a feisty one as Governs Kwame Agbodza, MP for Adaklu clashed with Richard Ahiagbah, former Executive Director of the Danquah Institute, Today, Tuesday, August 24, 2021 on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana with Randy Abbey. The discussion started with a brief touch on the security deployment at Ghana’s lanf borders especially in the Volta Region.

According to Hon. Agbodza, the main reason for the deployment is areas like Aflao and Sokagope was because of the 2020 elections. He mentioned that the NPP alleged that people will be brought in from Togo to vote and this caused President Akufo-Addo to have men stationed there. Randy Abbey and Richard Ahiagbah however disagreed vehemently. 

Richard was of the view that the deployment was because of the Covid-19 pandemic. He queried why the soldiers will still be at the borders had it been that they were just deployed for registering of voters and elections. He chastised the MP for Adaklu for trying to promote his political agenda and called for a non-partisan discussion.

Hon. Governs however debunked that and said that Ghana has a worse case when it comes to Covid as compared to Togo so why should the former rather lock up her borders. He explained that Ghana has a death toll close to 1000 while Togo had about 190. He bemoaned how traders are suffering because of the closure of the borders. Randy agreed that trade was bad for the traders but argued that the closure was not due to the elections because the election was gone and still the soldiers are there.

With the 2 panelists of Randy and Richard against his comments, the Adaklu MP who is a trained architect gave up with a simple but modest response, “You are the big fishes so let me leave you to talk, the Intelligent ones. I am just a villager”. This erupted in laughter for all 3 panelists on the show. Should the land borders be opened? Aren’t people now using unauthorized routes into Ghana?
