The Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II, has labelled persons who insult the President, Nana Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for asking them to stop illegal mining (galamsey) as villagers and witches.
Addressing the congregation at St Mark Anglican Church at Kyebi, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II pointed out that only those who were not properly trained at home and at church would insult the elderly.
“You wake up and go to do galamsey. It’s the youth I am advising.That galamsey that they give you GH¢100 is not sustainable for your future. Nana Addo has given you Free Senior High School. Soon even with Bachelors degree you would have to sweep the floor. Let’s stop this. Let’s appreciate the things he has done for Ghana and protect him.”
The Akyem Abuakwa overlord added: “The insults, everyone is insulting.
“If you are well trained, you cannot insult the elderly. If you are not a villager then you are a witch. I cannot understand, all the good things Nana Addo has done, and has been said across the world, God blessed us with this, Gold. If we manage it well, our country will be the envy of many. They cannot match us.
“None can get close. Some chiefs are part. A chief who has not seen GH¢40,000 before is shown a recognisance license. He would collect the GH¢40,000. He has no idea what is happening elsewhere. Those in charge of affairs, if you really love this country, you would not destroy it.”
