The Okyenman Youth Association has called on former presidential staffer, Stan Dobge, to retract statements and apologize for insulting the Okyenhene over comments the traditional ruler made on the death of former Vice President, Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur.
According to Mr Dogbe, the chief’s narration was `imaginary’ and an attempt to gain `cheap’ popularity.
This was in reference to the Okyenhene’s account of the death of the former vice president which suggested that Mr. Amissah-Arthur, was taken to hospital in the bucket of a pickup due to the absence of an ambulance.
Mr Amissah-Arthur passed on at the 37-Military Hospital, on Friday the 29th of June 2018, after he collapsed at the Airforce Gym during a workout session.
The youth group described Mr Dogbe’s statement as disrespectful.
“The Okyenman 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.”
The group is therefore asking Stan Dogbe “to apologize to the Okyenhene and the good people of Okyenman.”, the statement added.
