Journalist and television presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah, has criticized politician KT Hammond for recent remarks he made against Ghanaian youths.
Adansi Asokwa representative Kobina Tahir (K.T) Hammond expressed her ire over President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-treatment Addo’s at the recently completed Global Citizen Festival.
In an interview with journalists that Accra-based Joy FM shared with journalists, the lawmaker said that it was wrong for young people to criticize the president and, by implication, older members of society, especially for political reasons.
He urged the youth to always retain modesty and treat senior citizens with respect.
“We don’t live in a country and do that. Let’s be humble. Whatever we do, the president is the executive head of this country. When he came, he didn’t say anything. It wasn’t even a political platform.
“We consult the elderly on matters because they are wise. But because of politics, we do anything with the elderly. Let it even be a political platform that you can heckle but it wasn’t even a political rally.
“The youth should respect the elderly. We shouldn’t let it be that because of politics we can insult everyone. It’s not possible for the youth to be left to manage the affairs of the country.
“They won’t know how to do it in the first place. You don’t understand. You are galivanting about in this town with beard, nothing is in your heads,” he said in the Twi parlance.
