- NDC's General Mosquito says George Ayisi-Boateng completely ignored John Mahama during his last visit to South Africa
- Mosquito is saying the Ghanaian diplomat is not ready to change therefore must resign from his job
The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has disclosed that Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi-Boateng, recently failed to welcome ex-President Mahama on his visit to South Africa.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the High Commissioner has clearly demonstrated that he is indeed representing the interest of only his party members but not all Ghanaians.
Speaking on Accra FM on Thursday, the NDC Chief Scribe maintained that the apology rendered by Mr Ayisi-Boateng some months ago was cosmetic, since he blatantly ignored Mr Mahama in South Africa.
“Recently, former President Mahama wrote to Mr Ayisi-Boateng that he was travelling to South Africa, and, so, he will want to meet him, but Ayisi-Boateng failed to respond to the letter, he did not respond to Mr Mahama and also failed to meet him. The Secretary to the former president can confirm this,” Mr Nketia said.
General Mosquito who was clearly not happy about the posture of the NPP man added that, "the apology Mr Ayisi-Boateng rendered was not enough, he should have resigned, that was what we called for but the President asked him to continue working.”
The High Commissioner few months ago, came under intense pressure after he was reported to have said he will give priority to only his party members in line of his duties.
His comments sparked outrage from some Ghanaians including Civil Society organizations, who called on President Akufo-Addo to fire him from his position.
However, the diplomat apologized to Ghanaians over the comment after the public backlash.
