Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament from North Tongu, has asked Ghanaians to accept Meek Mill’s apologies for the contentious music video he shot at the Jubilee House.
“It does appear Meek Mill’s multiple apologies to Ghanaians are quite sincere and should be accepted by all,” he tweeted.
He further said his only “serious reservation, however, is his claim that he engaged in all that deplorable desecration and major security breach on the blind side of officials.
“Is the President safe? Is Ghana safe? This has, without a scintilla of doubt, further justified earlier demands for urgent investigations and severe sanctions.”
Before this, Mr Ablakwa said Government employees who were in charge of Meek Mill’s video shoot at the Jubilee House.
Mr Ablakwa said “All those responsible for this despicable desecration of the Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately.
How do those explicit lyrics from the president’s lectern project Ghana positively? “Is Ghana’s seat of government no longer a high-security installation?”
Meanwhile, the Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Richard Ahiagbah has distanced the Presidency from Meek Mills’ music video.
He said the music video was not sanctioned by the President.
“Meek Mill music’s video was not sanctioned by the Presidency. Its permission was not sought whatsoever for the use of the video. The musician has realized his indiscretion, apologized & taken down the video,” Mr Ahiagbah tweeted.
Following a public uproar, Meek Mill apologized for the controversial music video and has since deleted it.
In a tweet, Meek Mill said, “my apologies to the people if any disrespected. We still gonna push to make the connection between black people in America and Africa.. What I’m trying to do is more than a video and you should see coming soon. My apologies to the office [of the President] also”.
