The former Attorney General in a meeting with party communicators said: “Sometimes when I listen to the radio and I hear the things that are said on the radio, I feel pain, I feel pained that I am an Ashanti. I wonder why we can’t value what we have. I wonder why we can’t acknowledge that in Africa, Ghana is number one and among the top five countries”.
Responding to the public reaction to her comments, the former Education minister told Accra-based Neat FM Tuesday that even though she believes her comments have been twisted by the media, she nonetheless apologises for them.
“I am a true Ashanti and would not turn my back on my heritage. My words were twisted and would want to say sorry to all who have been hurt as a result of my statements,” she stated.
