The former Minister for Education, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, known also as NAPO, has rendered an unqualified apology to former president Mahama.
In 2017, NAPO strongly accused Mahama of being behind the many fainting of students and parents who had taken part in the march past on Ghana’s Independence Day Celebration, March 6th.
He made the confession when he appeared before the vetting committee as Energy Minister-designate.
The number of students who were affected was so high that it drew public criticisms.
However, NAPO was quick to shift the blame on the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), claiming that he bussed people to the Black Stars Square, where the event was held, to fake fainting in order to tarnish the image of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
Today, he has made a U-turn, explaining that he had no evidence to prove his accusation, therefore, he retracted them.
NAPO went on to say that if the words hurt Mahama, he should accept his apology, and wished he had said something different that day.
Meanwhile, NAPO was one of the former ministers who have been reassigned to serve in new ministries in Akufo-Addo's second term.

The little boy's evening was ruined as a result, and he looked so downhearted in the photo.
