Media personality Nana Aba Anamoah has joined the public criticism of Kobina Tahir Hammond, member of parliament for Adansi Asokwa, for declaring Ghana’s young unfit for leadership.
In response to a recent event in which President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo received jeers at a performance, Hammond said that young people should have patience and refrain from disparaging the elderly due to partisan political reasons.
The Adansi Asokwa MP went on to say that the youth have “coconut heads” and are incapable of leading the country even if it is given to them.
“It is not possible for governance to be left to the youth; you cannot do it; you won’t understand. You have all left your beards and have been roaming town but there is nothing in your head,” he is quoted to have said.
Nana Aba Anamoah, who joined the public outcry against the MP’s remarks, criticized K. in a Facebook post seen by GhanaWeb. T. Hammond for his excessive silliness.
“K. T. Hammond like comedy a lot. Too much of it,” wrote Nana Aba.
The MP has received criticism for his remarks from a number of individuals, with some labeling them as incorrect.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a North Tongu representative for the opposition, has also joined the criticism of his fellow lawmaker.
The idea that the young cannot lead, which KT Hammond had hinted at, was false in Okudzeto Ablakwa’s opinion. He called it “outlandish” and “terribly erroneous.”
“The very people who hail us when leadership produces positive results do not deserve to be vilified when they express disappointment in leaders for their abysmal performance.
“K.T. Hammond is terribly wrong, and it’s an outlandish fallacy for him to claim the youth aren’t fit to lead,” he stated in social media posts dated September 27, 2022.
