The Convention People’s Party’s (CPP) National Chairman, Professor Edmund Delle has disapproved of the rampant abuse of the granted freedom of speech for all Ghanaians in the 1992 constitution.
Prof. Delle revealed that he has stopped putting himself in front-line media to avoid the harsh and disrespectful comments by Ghanaians who hide behind their basic freedom to insult elders.
“It is not fine that the youth who lack experience go on air and insult their elders. I am a respected person out of politics and you can attest to that but when these small small boys hide under the freedom of speech and politics to insult their elders I get worried” he lamented.
According to him, although he has a wealth of experience he could share with the youth, he would rather avoid going on air to prevent them from having the opportunity to insult him.
“I don’t want to be appearing on shows so that when I am provoked I will say certain things that will not speak well for me. I am actually sad at the path the country is going”, Prof. Delle said.
The abuse on media he said, was unhealthy for the development of the country and advised media houses not to condone the sickening behaviour of the youth today.
