The managing editor of the 'Insight' newspaper, Kwasi Pratt Jr. has asked President John Dramani Mahama to sack his protocol officials for allowing Asiedu Nketia to wear a winter coat belonging to his wife.
“What is the duty of the so-called state protocol? If you go to a function in some parts of this country - dependant on the way you wear your hat – you can cause a war …dressing is about making a statement also - and that is why we employ some people, pay them, give them resources so that they may keep public officials fully abreast with this development so that they do not cause embarrassment.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s Alhaji & Alhaji programme on Saturday, Pratt said the issue must not be trivialized because people are paid to check everyone that moves with the president.
“Every day we get embarrassed because somebody does not do his work well. And they continue to be in office and embarrass us more … next time it will not be a woman’s coat …so the blame is not on Asiedu Nketia because he is not an European …I will not blame him because he simply doesn’t know…he’s never seen winter before. He never had seen winter before. He doesn’t know the difference between a women’s coat and men’s winter coat and so on... but somebody is paid to know so that Asiedu Nketia may be advised so that his dressing does not become a distraction. How come those who are paid to do the job do not do their job?” he queried.
