In an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, Asante said the letter from the office of the president which ordered Opuni to leave the office by 5pm Friday evening was disrespectful.
According to the former diplomat who served under Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, the letter should have thanked Opuni for his service to the nation in the last four years.
“…the letter is not polite. It is not nice…I don’t like the tone of the letter and those who wrote it should know better…it is not Ghanaian… there should be a letter thanking him for his work, which would also state that in view of the change in government, he should vacate office by such and such time and that he should hand over to this officer,” he said.
Asante added that in the Ghanaian culture, even if one wants to insult an official, it is done in a nice way.
