I Won’t Apologise… Nunoo-Mensah
The National Security adviser, Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah (Rtd) says he sees nothing wrong with his comments about the organised labour despite calls from some political parties and a section of the public for him to apologise and resign.
Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah vented his spleen at organised labour a few days ago by describing them as “unpatriotic” and “undisciplined”.
According to him, if organised labour found the country “too hot”, they should fly out to other countries.
He said “every Tom, Dick and Harry gets up and is calling for a strike. If you don’t want the job Ghana is not a police state, take your passport and get out of this country. If you can’t sacrifice like what some of us have then get out. If the kitchen is too hot for you, get out”.
His comment has however attracted a lot of flak from some political parties and the organized labour with some calling on the President to relieve him of his duties.
However, in an interview with host of Breakfast XYZ, Moro Awudu on Tuesday, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah said he does not regret his comments and would never apologise for speaking the truth.
“Why should I apologise? Why do you think I should apologise, for what?” General Nunoo-Mensah said.
He said those calling for his dismissal do not understand the context in which he made the comments hence have no basis to call for his dismissal.
