The president was booed on stage when he came to address attendees at the Global Citizen Festival. While others “booed” through a cross-section of the crowd, others clapped and shouted “away”.
Reacting to the incident in a series of posts on Facebook, Prof. Gyampo stated that despite the hardship in the country, the office of the president and its occupant must be respected at all costs.
‘We do not like how the country is being governed but we cannot suddenly also throw our culture of courtesy, respect, and civility to the dogs. The position of the PRESIDENCY MUST be respected by ALL, regardless of its occupant,” he wrote in one of his posts.
