- The Board Chairman of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Sammy Awuku has decried the bad publicity over Wendy Shay’s meeting with Kufuor
- He said that is not what the YEA board expected out of such an important visit
- Wendy Shay had shared a photo from that visit dressed in what some Ghanaians have called an “indecent” attire
The Board Chairman of YEA, Sammy Awuku, who also doubles as national organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has criticised the negative feedback which rocked the agency.
This follows a photo of Wendy Shay and former president Kufuor when the musician together with other ambassadors paid a courtesy call on him.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Awuku wrote that the reaction generated from the visit is definitely not what the YEA board expected.
He added that the YEA must ensure that ambassadors stick to the highest level of professionalism when paying courtesy calls.
Wendy Shay was dressed in an attire exposing her body, she was seen sitting next to Kufuor who appeared to be looking at her chest.
The musician posted the photo to her Instagram page with a caption suggesting that Kufuor was looking at her breasts.
She wrote: “Kufuor pe shw3. Finally met my chief Uber driver…”
The photo went haywire on social media with many people condemning the musician for saying that Wendy Shay was disrespecting the former president.
Out of the backlash, the musician deleted the photo from Instagram, but that would not stop the negative reactions.
It is in this vein that Sammy Awuku has expressed disappointment in Wendy Shay’s visit.
He wrote that standards must be set for all ambassadors and they must be made to comply.
Awuku reiterated that those willing to cooperate with the standards would be supported and welcomed while those who show reluctance would be shown the exit.
Meanwhile, a new list of the YEA ambassadors shows that Wendy Shay’s name has been taken out, as earlier reported by YEN.com.gh.
Reports suggest that she had been sacked over her brouhaha with Kufuor.
