A member of the communications team of the governing party NPP has boldly declared his strong conviction not to retract an insult he spewed on some NDC officials.
Engineer Nana Afari Kwagyir Aggrey, during a heated argument on Hot FM, an Accra-based radio station said his insults and derogatory remarks on the late President Atta-Mills, John Mahama and Professor Janne Naana Agyemang will not be retracted.
His reasons for holding onto this entrenched position are: one, he is now studying for his Masters and two, his party is in power. In effect, Nana Afari was convinced that as far as his party is in power and his educational standing is taking a turn, he owes no one an apology.
The interesting part of the whole scenario is not him refusing to render an apology or retract his insults but the reasons he gave that his party is in power and therefore makes him incorrigible.
The political landscape in Ghana has been saddled with individuals who lack values and virtues and are thereby emboldened to insult whomever for whatsoever reason. Thus, the right individuals are not attracted to practise politics in the country because arguments are based on sensationalism and vendettas instead of ideas and facts.
