The Member of Parliament for the Ningo-Prampram constituency Hon. Sam Nartey George has reacted to the widely circulated video of some Senior High School students expressing their fraustration at President Nana Akufo Addo due to what they call ‘difficult’ Integrated Science examination Paper.
Reacting to the videos made by some of the WASSCE candidates who threatened not to vote for Nana Akufo Addo this year for giving them a difficult examination to write, Hon. Sam George condemned the vulgar language used on the President by the students.
Hon. Sam George explained that, he disagrees with and criticises the President vehemently on several issues but to see the President of the land being insulted in such crass and vulgar manner especially for the reason the students gave leaves him very sad.
Read the statement put out Hon. Sam George below;
I have seen a video of students insulting the President and reminding him that he is also a ‘final year student’. I have decided on principle not to share or repost the said video as I find it distasteful to say the least.
I disagree with and criticise vehemently the President on several issues but to see the President of the land insulted in such crass and vulgar manner especially for the reason the students gave leaves me very sad.
It speaks of how as politicians, we have allowed every discourse to be characterised by vitriol and sent a truly sad message to the people we lead. This is a source of deep worry. This is an issue highlighted recently by the Presiding Bishop of the Perez Chapel International.
Sadly, he was equally dealt with by henchmen of the President including a Presidential Staffer, a Party Regional Chairman and a Member of Parliament. The President has been loudly silent on the clear denigration of the Clergyman for simply calling out politicians, every single one of us.
Maybe, just maybe, it is time we took a break as a Nation and paused for reflection on the path we are on. A path of conflict and chaos would benefit absolutely no one who truly loves this Nation. I hope it is not too late.
Pray for the Homeland. 🦁🇬🇭
