[Office of the Loyalists of Hon. Joseph Kofi Adda]
Demand from customers FOR Speedy APOLOGY FROM ERIC AMOH, THE Upper EAST REGIONAL CHAIRMAN OF GHANA JOURNALISTS Association.
The interest of the Business office of the Loyalists of Hon. Joseph Kofi Adda, Minister for Aviation and Navrongo Central Member of Parliament (MP) has been drawn to an audio clip and a publication on A1Radioonline.com, dated January, 26th, 2020, with the headline, “Reprimand Kofi Adda for performing childish- GJA Chairman tells NPP”.
In the explained audio clip and publication which has designed the rounds on social media, the regional GJA chairman applied venomous language and attacked the renowned and revered politician by contacting him “childish and immature” for granting an interview on A1 Radio, a radio station in the location.
He accused Hon. Adda of seeking to vilify other politicians and inciting chaos in the election year with his utterances in the radio interview.
His reviews look for to problems the reputation of Hon. Adda and place him up for public ridicule.
But to the most effective of our know-how, Hon. Adda hardly ever attacked and has never designed attempts to vilify any political figure in the location and region. He stands for peace, serenity and advancement and has been really integral in peace creating in the location.
Hon. Joseph Kofi Adda is a politician of excellent reputation who has appreciate and respect for all. He is arguably a single of the most accommodating, humble and approachable political chief in the nation. Even however, he produced responses and stated some truths to specified thoughts from the host of the radio present that wanted clarifications, and which we think have been established up, that does not warrant the intemperate language the GJA Chairman utilized on Hon. Adda in the existence of his paymasters.
It beats our knowing that a GJA chairman who should really know better and is meant to guideline his customers against the use of foul language in their line of obligation, is stated to have coerced a Radio demonstrate host to render an apology to a Minister of Condition for speaking his intellect on an challenge, will himself kowtow shamelessly in the presence of his paymasters and on the grounds of 1 of two sides, to insult a male who is way out of his league.
Certainly, we know that Mr. Amoh is in mattress with the regional minister and is assisting her in her bid to contest in the primaries. We really don’t care who he associates with. What we would want to make obvious to him is to desist from building remarks about inside challenges he has no much awareness about.Henceforth,he really should Under no circumstances, Ever imagine of attacking Hon. Kofi Adda. This should really be the past!
Eventually, we want Mr. Eric Amoh to openly render an speedy apology to Hon. Joseph Kofi Adda and the great people today of Navrongo. We are also calling on the National Management of the Ghana Journalist Association to examine Mr. Amoh and comply with with the vital punitive steps.
All over again, we wish to urge Journalists in the location and nation to desist from electing corrupt and failures like Mr. Amoh as executives. Folks like him only treatment about their stomachs and have nothing at all much better to present the job. Apparent is how he puts unqualified people up as journalists for instructional outings outside the house Ghana though right and deserving journalists rot.
Nationwide GJA body should act now in advance of he plunges the regional department additional into the ditch.
Ing. David Adda.
