- The Abuakwa Traditional Council has described Stan Dogbe as 'disrespectful' for attacking Okyenhene
- The Traditional Council has denied Stan Dogbe's claim that the Okyenhene went to the Gym in a luxurious car
The Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council has reacted to comments made by former presidential staffer, under the erstwhile NDC-Mahama administration, Stan Xoese Dogbe, for attacking the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II.
Stan Dogbe who appears not happy about some comments made by the traditional leader over the death of former Vice President, Amissah-Arthur has chastised the Okyenhene in a Facebook post.
The Paramount Chief, has come under heavy criticisms after he was captured in a viral video recounting circumstances that led to the untimely death of Amissah-Arthur.
The Okyenhene in his account revealed that there was no ambulance to carry the former Vice President to the hospital after he collapsed at the Airforce Gym last Friday, where he was also working out.
The traditional leader in his account added that he came face to face with Amissah-Arthur, and even interacted with him for some minutes at the Gym before he collapsed to his death after separating to their various training machines.
The Okyenhene in further comments stated that while he was training, he heard a loud bang. He added that he quickly rushed to where he heard and found some of the trainers gathered around the late vice president on the ground with a few of the women at the gym at the time, including Mr Amissah-Arthur’s wife screaming and praying.
However, Stan Dogbe in a Facebook post called on the Okyenhene, “To cease the recklessness of seeking cheap popularity by going to public events and seeking to share coloured stories”.
To him, if the Okyenhene had a good heart and a spirit of helping he would have sent him to the hospital in his car.
But reacting to the attacks, Secretary at the office of Okyehene, Daniel Marfo Ofori-Atta described jabs by Stan Dogbe against the Okyenhene as a reflection of the much talked about disrespect inherent in the Mahama administration.
Mr. Ofori Atta says Stan Dogbe’s post is unfortunate and disrespectful because the Okyehene was only expressing concerns about Ghana’s emergency response and not seeking to score popularity as suggested.
He also denied Dogbe’s claim that Okyenhene’s luxurious car was at the gym and he could have used it in transporting the ex-vice president to the hospital if he cares as much as he is claiming.
