The parliamentary nominee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Tamale North Constituency, has apologized to the Ghana Education Service (GES), for comments he made while he addressing students in the Northern Region on Monday.
Alhassan Suhuyini admitted that, some comments he made on the platform were political in nature and were “against the GES codes.”
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Suhuyini said: “I apologize to the Northern School of business , the Ghana education service and to the District chief executive and the officers of the national disaster management organisation.
The Northern School of business and GES because parts of my address to the students during the presentation of disaster items ventured into politics which is against the GES codes.”
Suhuyini was addressing students of the Northern School of Business (NOBISCO), where he presented relief items to victims of an inferno which recently gutted the Gbewaa Boys dormitory.
The items comprised roofing sheets, mattresses, branded exercise books, blankets, buckets and mosquito nets.
Suhuyini urges voters to support Mahama
Mr. Suhuyini, whiles speaking on that platform, made comments deemed ethnocentric. The host of Radio Gold’s ‘Alhaji & Alhaji’ show called on voters in the region to turn out in their numbers to vote for the President Mahama on election day.
“When a Voltarian stood to be President the whole of Volta Region voted for him until he stopped being President. Jerry John Rawlings and when Ashanti man stood to be President the whole of Ashanti Region rallied behind him until he stopped to become President, President Kufour,” he said.
“When Professor Atta Mills decided to run for President the whole of central region, his home region, voted massively for him before he could win in 2008, and do you know the sad news?
When John Mahama from the northern region decided to be President in 2012, the NDC in northern region lost 11 constituencies.”
“For the first time in the history of this country in the fourth Republic, we had a President who won to be President without the support of his home region.”
