The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has described the Ghana@60 anniversary celebration as an ‘embarrassment’ and continued to say it was highly “unnecessary” for actor, Agya Koo to have staged a performance on that day.
According to him, the drama by the veteran actor and his colleagues was unneeded – “They just wasted our time and it’s very inhuman for such to happen. It was unnecessary.”
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Mr. Nketia said the idea to sideline the guest of honour, President Robert Mugabe, from delivering a speech was unfortunate.
“For the first time in the history of Ghana, our guest of honour for the occasion did not deliver any speech. None of them [other Presidents] even made a sentence on the day yet they brought Agya Koo for that concert,” he said.
The NDC scribe however, called for the sanctioning of the anniversary planning committee for embarrassing the country. He maintained that the handover ceremony from former President, John Dramani Mahama, to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was far more successful than the Ghana@60 anniversary celebration.
