Former presidential staffer Stan Dogbe, has been admonished by the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional council over what they describe as “disrespectful” speech against the Okyehene.
Mr. Dogbe criticized Osagyefo Amoata Ofori-Panin in a recent interview with the media where he disclosed the circumstances that lead to the death of former vice president.
The okyehene disclosed the late Paa Kwesi Arthur, who died at the airforce gym last Friday was conveyed to the hospital by a pickup truck due to unavailable of ambulance.
Mr Dogbe did not find the okyehene statement very satisfactory and took to his facebook page to condemn the chief.
The former presidential staffer said the Okyenhene was seeking “cheap popularity”, arguing that he “had a luxury vehicle there, and many others had their cars there, if he had a good heart and a spirit of helping others, maybe; just maybe, he would have sent him to the hospital in his car”.
Meanwhile, a group calling itself the Okyeman Youth Association, has also asked Mr. Dogbe to apologize to the Okyenhene for supposedly insulting their traditional ruler.
In a statement, the group said: “The Okyeman Youth Association finds comments very reckless and disrespectful to not only the Okyenhene or the people of Akyem descent, but also the chieftaincy institution of the country and consequently condemns this unprovoked attack on the person of the Okyenhene in no uncertain times.”
