Amaliba said he anticipates the President will have apologized at this point while speaking on TV3 in Accra.
The National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) legal team member, Abraham Amaliba, expressed surprise that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has not yet offered an apology for his remarks in Mepe.
He claimed that the President insulted the Volta Region’s residents when he paid a visit to express his sympathies for the Akosombo Dam spillage victims.
The saddest part of it all is that the president hasn’t offered an apology for the false statements he made to the residents of the Volta Region. Does he have an apology? The third day has passed. I believed the president ought to have apologized for the utter nonsense of the remark he made to the public,” he said.
Amaliba said that he believes the president’s behaviors are all the consequence of his terrible upbringing, despite the fact that the president has made several comments criticizing them under various identities.
He continued by saying that the president has only displayed his true character since assuming the nation’s highest office.
I have heard a variety of criticisms about the president, and he has failed. None of the criticisms of the president are true; rather, his issue is with his terrible upbringing, which will eventually lead to all of the things he is doing. When you hold the office of president, it doesn’t alter who you are; rather, it reveals your character, he said.
The spillages from the dams have had a significant impact on a large number of communities in North Tongu, South Tongu, Asuogyaman, Ada East, Keta, and other coastal areas in the Volta Region.
On Monday, October 16, Mr. Akufo-Addo told the residents of Mepe who had been devastated by the flood brought on by the dam spill that he serves as president for all Ghanaians, regardless of whether they voted for him or not.
The chiefs and residents of Mepe and other towns in the North, South, and Central Tongu areas of the region—strongholds of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)—were given assurances by the president that the government would do everything within its power to improve their situation.
