Adansi-Asokwa Member of Parliament (MP), Kwabena Tahir Hammond has incurred the wrath of some personalities following his atack on the youth who booed president Akufo-Addo during his speech at the GlobalmConcert festival.
KT Hammond in response to the boos said the youth in the country are empty-headed, lazy and wrong to criticize or boo the president.
However, Former presidential staffer under John Dramani Mahama, PV Jantuah Dadson Boateng says KT Hammond’s reaction looks more senseless than the action of the youth.
‘‘The booing of the President by the youth is ‘unGhanaian’ but KT Hammond knowing that the youth have erred and trying to correct that, you don’t go about insulting them with disdain, with his bald head, was he speaking sense? The bible tells us to respect our parents so our days may be long on earth, the same bible enjoins us to not prove the younger generation’’
‘‘What KT Hammond said lacks sense, who said people at respectable places don’t say silly things. If he wanted to correct the youth, he has made things worse with his statements, if he feels the youth are not engaged, he should make a law as a parliamentarian so the youth can get work to do’’
He continued: “Yes the fundamentals, are not working but you don’t resort to booing an elder, there are ways to make your grievances heard in a democracy. Now K T Hammond and the youth who acted that way who has sense, tell me’’
‘‘I think now, the youth have much more sense than KT Hammond in his attempt to correct them, it is the youth who voted him to power and have given him a job. I will be surprised I Adansi Asokwa residents, especially the youth will vote for this guy to lead them again in parliament’’.
