Member of Parliament(MP) for Adansi Asokwa, KT Hammond has said in an interview MyNewsGh.com monitored that the interpretation the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has given to his innocent statements is mainly to dent his reputation and cause chaos in the country.
The MP in a video justified that the military deployed to the Volta region, a stronghold of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is to prevent foreigners from registering in the upcoming compilation voters’ register.
His comments have, however, infuriated natives of the region and the opposition party who are demanding an immediate apology and retraction.
But in an interview with JoyNews, they asked the MP to apologize for his comment but he said he will never apologize because the NDC is propagating his speech with malice.
K.T. Hammond has descried calls from him to apologize over ethnocentric comments he made about people living in the Volta region as ‘nonsense’.
“I can’t in the life of me…. imagine that any institution like Joy FM will put out a message as dangerous as this, as ethnocentric as this. What was it meant to achieve?” he quizzed.
The former Deputy Minister reiterates that the interpretation the opposition has given to his innocent statements is mainly to dent his reputation and cause chaos in the country.
“Why do I regret when I was stating the fact. Togolese are not Ghanaians unless you have some definition of Togolese which means Ghana,” the MP said when given the opportunity to apologize.
