Presidential staffer, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe has suggested that University of Ghana Pharmacy student who was arrested by the police for essentially breaching security protocol while, the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo was delivering a speech should have been shot instead.
According Teiko Tagoe, the student, identified as Sekyi-Brown Reginald, was lucky he was not shot but arrested rather.
“The First Lady was delivering her speech and you decided to get up and walked boldly and deliberately her and you expect the security personnel to sit down and clap for you? You are lucky this is Ghana, you would have been shot dead in another jurisdiction. It’s about time we tell some of these social media commentators that they are not above the law,” posted on his Facebook wall.
Reginald was spotted holding a placard with the inscription “Open UGMC Now” when the First Lady visited the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to cut sod for the construction of a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

The apprehended student is believed to be a strong advocate who has been pushing for the opening of the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).
Reports suggest that he has been detained at the Korle-Bu Police station for raising a placard whiles the First Lady was delivering a speech at the programme.
The presidential staffers post, however generated a lot of negative comments, which resulted in him deleting his initial. He also offered an apology for his harsh comments.
