Former Kumasi metropolitan assembly boss, Maxwell Kofi Jumah has apologised for calling the British High Commissioner to Ghana ‘a fool”.
The former NPP lawmaker has shown remorse and is pleading for forgiveness from Jon Benjamin for his gaffe Monday morning.
“What happened was unfortunate. On my part, I was misinformed about the whole issue so that triggered me to say things I shouldn’t have said. But I haven’t met Jon Benjamin yet, but if I have the opportunity to meet him, I will plead with him to forgive me.”
“ … I say sorry to the man. What I said about him isn’t appropriate. He should forgive me,” Kofi Jumah said in an interview on Neat FM.
Kofi Jumah on Monday, May 30, launched a verbal attack on the British High Commissioner to Ghana and angrily described him as a “fool” for his swift defence of the Central Regional chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs, who was alleged to have been arrested in the UK.
“So if Britain wants someone as a High Commissioner to Ghana, must they appoint a fool like Jon Benjamin as their Commissioner to Ghana? That man is a fool,” he said.
