“Mr Woyongo’s comments are in bad taste, he is a danger to the whole country. His subsequent justification of his earlier comments makes it even worse. Knowing President Mahama for his “yentie obiaa” attitude, it would be difficult for him to sack Woyongo”. - Dr Amoako Baah
The Head of the Political Science Department of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Amoako Baah said this during an interview with Accra-based Kasapa FM.
Dr. Amoako Baah noted that, he will be much surprised if President John Dramni Mahama fires beleaguered Interior Minister Mark Woyongo over his infamous “Violence begets violence” comment on the Talensi by-election violence.
Ridiculous - whoever continues to call for the dismissal of Mr Woyongo will be wasting his or her breath as President Mahama has always remained lethargic whenever he has to take action against his blundering appointees – President Mahama can never sack him [Woyongo].
The under-fire minster in an interview on Ultimate FM in Kumasi justified the dreadful acts of violence by ‘Azorka boys’ and ‘Bolga Bulldogs’ after Talensi by-elections - ‘violence begets violence’ and that the assault was in response to provocation.
Dr. Amoako Baah however told Kasapa FM that - such utterances should not have come from someone in charge of the country’s internal security.
