Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Francis-Xavier Kojo Sosu, has rendered an “unqualified apology” for some unsavory words he uttered at the Occupy BoG Demonstration held on Tuesday, October 3, 2023.
In a video that went viral, the MP was heard making some derogatory words in Ga aimed at how the Ghanaian economy has been managed and the performance of the Bank of Ghana Governor, Dr. Ernest Addison.
Responding to a section of the public’s backlash, Mr Sosu, in a statement issued on his X account Wednesday, October 4, said that upon deliberation, he had come to accept that “though I spoke those words out of anger and extreme provocation, I was completely out of character.”
He asked those offended by his words for forgiveness.
“I unreservedly apologize for my actions and words and ask that all those offended would find a place in their hearts to forgive me. I am human and this only demonstrated the anguish, pain, frustrations and disappointment at the management of the Bank of Ghana, and at our current state of affairs as a country,” he said.
The opposition National Democratic Congress together with pressure group Arise Ghana organised the Occupy BoG (Bank of Ghana) Demonstration.
