Media personality and social media commentator, Afia Schwarzenegger has lambasted the National Democratic Congress ( NDC ) Presidential Aspirant, Alban Bagbin for his unsavoury comment he made on Dr Henry Seidu Danaa.
Afia Schwarzenegger expressed disappointment in comments made by Alban Bagbin with regards to the nomination of Dr Henry Siedu Daanaa and Mr Omane Boamah, as Minister for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, and Communications, respectively.
Dr Henry Siedu Daanaa, who is the former Minister for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs of Ghana, was the first visually impaired person to be approved as a Minister of State in Ghana.
Mr Alban Bagbin has slammed as bad, former President John Mahama’s appointment of Dr Omane Boamah as Communications Minister and a “blind person” as Minister of Chieftaincy Affairs.
According to him, Dr Omane Boamah, who stammers; “wasted time” communicating with Ghanaians due to his disability.
He added further that the choice of Dr Seidu Danaa, who is visually impaired; as Chieftaincy Minister was also wrong because the Ghanaian culture does not allow one who is not “whole” to be made a chief.
The host of the Politcal Police show could not fathom why a prominent person of his caliber would make such a statement.
In a video circulating on social media , Afia Schwarzenegger said Bagbin had no right to attack Dr . Danaa.
According to Afia Schwarzenegger Bagbin impregnated the younger sister of his wife and has no moral right to demean Dr. Danaa.
She added that it was wrong to have made demeaning statements on stammerers and blind people.
Hon. Alban Bagbin is currently under pressure from Ghana Federation of Disability Organisations to apologize over comments made on stammerers and blind people.
