The National Policy Advisor for the Progressive People’s Party, Kofi Asamoah Siaw, has stated that whoever filmed the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo celebrating the victory of Tottenham Hotspur from his private office and shared on social media must be found out and fired.
According to the former Akyem Oda Member of Parliament Hopeful, the putting out of the video is the highest form of indiscretion and an abuse of privileges by the perpetrator.
He stated that “the president has every right to watch footfall, movies or engage in any form of entertainment both privately and publicly when it is appropriate.” Adding that ” it did not give anyone the chance to film him and put the video on social media.”
In a facebook post, Asamoah-Siaw said ” If His Excellency chose to support ‘his team’ by watching the Tottenham vrs Ajax match in his office, even with presidential staffers or friends, it did not give anyone the chance to film him and put the video on social media. We joke with so many things in Ghana and such jokers should not be allowed to get so close to our presidents; otherwise we are in big trouble.”
Asamoah-Siaw said “the only way whoever filmed the president would be pardoned is that it was done with the express endorsement or permission of the president; and that also in itself will constitute indiscretion on the part of the president, looking at the content of the video.” “We must get serious in Ghana!”
Akufo-Addo and Tottenham Hotspur
