Leader of Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah, has said that the soldier involved in the DropThatChamber controversy needs to be celebrated as a national hero
According to Ernesto, the army man deserves the accolade due to his high-spirited, bold and outspoken personality despite the conditions of service in the army to speak against the government.
Ernesto added that none of his colleagues would dream about doing even if they were given the chance to do so.
The DropThatChamber crusader said on July 27, 2019, the leadership of EFL, paid Lance Corporal Wassa at the Recce guard room in Burma camp
"For a person to become a soldier, it take one who loves his/ her country more than himself to to that. So for him to come out to say what he said, he has the country at heart," he said
Speaking to neat FM, Yeboah said Lance Corporal Wassa just like Major Mahama, had a gun he could have used to drive home his argument of not supporting the new chamber but he was treated like he had done something really bad.
"I think the soldier recording a message to the president stating obvious reasons was the most noble thing any armed personnel like Wassa would have done. On that basis he deserves a national honor and not just his freedom" Ernesto reiterated.
