‘Ayisi-Boatneg is father for all’ – Ayorkor Botchwey

Contrary to his statement that his topmost priority is to seek the welfare of members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) since in his view, they are “more Ghanaian than other Ghanaians”, Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi-Boateng, has in practice, been a “father for all” since his appointment, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor-Botchwey, has said.

Mr Ayisi-Boateng has widely being condemned for those comments by the Minority in Parliament, clergy, civil society organisations and a section of Ghanaians, with many calling for his resignation or dismissal.

After defending his comment, Mr Ayisi-Boateng on Wednesday, 1 November, 2017 retracted and apologised.

Reacting to this development in a radio on Thursday, Mrs Ayorkor Botchwey noted that despite Mr Ayisi-Boateng’s statement, in practice, he has not discriminated against any Ghanaian since his appointment.
