An organized body of youths in the Central Region of Ghana have called on former member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs to withdraw and apologize unreservedly to Sir. Dr. Sam Jonah for his offensive remarks.
The sacked former Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Allotey Jacobs recently called out Sir Sam Jonah, former President of Anglogold Ashanti to create jobs for the youth in the country and stop hurling criticisms at the ruling government.
Allotey’s attacks came on the heels of Sir Jonah’s speech to the Rotary Club in Accra in which he bemoaned the country’s enormous debt, joblessness and how government continues to exceed its expenditure.
Reacting to Sam Jonah in a one-on-one interview on Happy FM, Allotey Jacobs asked the Ghanaian billionaire to act like Nigerian business mogul, Aliko Dangote and create jobs for the teeming youth and stop wailing.
The Youths consider Allotey’s commentary unacceptable. They said it’s very offensive for a person like Allotey to hurl offensive remarks at Sir Sam Jonah for simply repeating the obvious.
Consequently, they have sent a strong worded message and ultimatum to Allotey Jacobs to unequivocally withdraw his unacceptable response to the well-revered statesman and rather advise the government to do the needful.
“We the youth of Central Region are sending a 24-hour ultimatum to Allotey Jacobs to withdraw his uncouth statement he made to Sir Sam Jonah or face our wrath and hostility in the coming days ahead,” they said.
“What are the worries of Allotey Jacobs and what’s his portfolio within the current government for him to have the effrontery to make such infantile comments about a harmless speech delivered to an association that invited Sir Sam Jonah to an event,” they added.
