Gospel artiste, Sonnie Badu has reiterated his call for the renaming of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The award winning Ghanaian-UK based musician has been supporting an assertion by popular political pundit, Kwame A Plus that until the name of the country’s international airport is changed from Kotoka, Ghana will know no peace.
“Ghana's main problem since independence is this guy, general EK Kotoka, the guy who led the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah.... I wonder why our airport is still named after him.... It shows that we don't know what we lost or appreciate what Nkrumah did for us. Ungrateful people,” A Plus posted.
Commenting on the post by A Plus, Sonnie Badu concurred 100 percent for a renaming of the KIA.
Sonnie Badu wrote; “And he is sitting at the gateway to Ghana ... well, you just solved the problem.. until the name is changed Ghana will never have their peace... The one who got us independence should have his name at the airport.”
Sonnie Badu’s comment attracted a lot of criticism on social media, especially Facebook.
But in a Facebook live section, the gospel musician sort to clarify and explain properly his earlier comment about Ghana not knowing peace.
He stated that “I don’t understand why this new generation is saying what does Sonnie Badu know?. No I am speaking from a spiritual standpoint.”
He added that his declaration of Ghana not knowing peace as a result of the name on the airport does not translate into a war for the country but is evident in the current happenings in Ghana.
