Kofi Jumah Apologizes To British High Commissioner To Ghana

Leave a comment

Former Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly boss and New Patriotic Party [NPP] member, Maxwell Kofi Jumah says he has always believed that life is too short for rows and disagreements.

According to him, it will be prudent to apologize for his wrongdoing and remain friends with the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin rather than win an argument and be an enemy.

Kofi Jumah on Monday May 30, launched a verbal attack on the British High Commissioner to Ghana and angrily described him as a “fool” for his swift defence of the Central Regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs, who was alleged to have been arrested in the UK.

“So if Britain wants someone as a High Commissioner to Ghana, must they appoint a fool like Jon Benjamin as their Commissioner to Ghana? That man is a fool,” Mr Jumah angrily said on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

This was after Mr Jon Benjamin had tweeted that – “I can confirm that the rumor about Mr. Jacobs is definitely not true . . . Mr. Allotey Jacobs transited Heathrow this morning without incident.”

However, the former NPP lawmaker, Kofi Jumah after days of his invectives has shown compunction and is pleading for forgiveness from Mr Jon Benjamin for his gaffe.

“What happened was unfortunate. On my part, I was misinformed about the whole issue so that triggered me to say things I shouldn’t have said. But I haven’t met Jon Benjamin yet, but if I have the opportunity to meet him, I will plead with him to forgive me.”

“ . . I say sorry to the man. What I said about him isn’t appropriate. He should forgive me,” a remorseful Kofi Jumah said in an interview with Kwesi Aboagye on NEAT FM’s morning show.
