NPP National Women Organiser, 1 Other Renders Apology To Kennedy Agyapong
National Women Organizer of the ruling New Party Party (NPP), Kate Gyamfua has stepped in to render an unqualified apology on behalf of a volunteer group leader to the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong over some unacceptable words used against him on social media last week.
According to Madam Gyamfua, although social media is a powerful platform that connects people, it is also an avenue where people spew unacceptable words to others.
Speaking on an Accra-based radio station, Madam Kate said "I am here today to render an apology to Honourable Ken Agyapong on behalf of one of the leaders of the volunteer groups, Miss Dorcas over her unacceptable comments passed on the MP on her social media platform last week"
She also added the apology forms part of measures of maintaining peace among leaders and members of the various volunteer groups in the party.
The National Women Organizer also used the opportunity caution young women against the wrong usage of their various social media platforms.
"As a mother of the party, I see it important for the young ones to respect their elders. You must always remember that respect is reciprocal" she stressed.
On the other hand, the MP for Assin Central Constituency accepted the apology and admonished the youth to be mindful of their utterances and write ups on social media since it can damage the hard won reputation of others.
Madam Kate thanked Mr. Agyapong for his acceptance and also took the opportunity to advise the youth of the party to refrain from using offensive/abusive language in their write-ups.
"We are in an election year. Be mindful of your write-ups, posts and utterances on social media. Do not exhibit such behaviours since it will not augur well for the party" she appealed.
She encouraged them to focus on trumpeting the good policies being executed by the Akufo-Addo government such as 'Free SHS' among others.
Madam Kate Gyamfua seized the opportunity to touch on NPP National Women's Wing 2020 campaign slogan ''We Care'' whic is aimed at encouraging healthy living in the wake of the novel Corona virus and beyond.
She said "Remind Ghanaians on the tremendous and overwhelming projects the NPP's administration led by His Excellency Akufo- Addo has accomplishedwithin three and half years of its governance"
