A group known as Damsel Foundation is warning President Akufo Addo to dismiss presidential staff, Nana Hesse Ogyiri who aimed lurid and sexist comments at the Farida Mahama, the teenage daughter of former president John Dramani Mahama.
Ex-President Mahama had posted two beautiful pictures of Farida on his Facebook page to celebrate her 17th birthday.
But no sooner than the pictures been posted than the sexual predatory instincts of Nana Hesse Ogyiri kicked in. He practically drooled at the minor and could not help but steal her pictures and post them on his own Facebook with the comments “Former President John Mahama’s daughter, Farida. She has fully developed and is well-endowed. Very manageable. What do u think?”
His perverted remarks have earned him widespread public backlash forcing him to take down the post and issue an apology that has been dismissed by his critics.
According to Damsel Foundation, the comment is shameful and uncharacteristic of a presidential staffer, adding that this was not the first time Hesse Ogyiri had made similar paedophilic comments.
The Damsel Foundation has hinted that it will lodge a formal complaint to the Chief of Staff and other local and international bodies to get the sexual predator kicked out of the Jubilee House.
“The said statement amounts to child abuse in clear contravention of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Children’s Act, 1998 (ACT 560) of Ghana, which enjoins governments and all persons not to subject a child to any mental abuse… Regrettably, Mr. Nana Hesse Ogyiri did not only make these sexually abusive and inappropriate comments about the minor but further went ahead to invite the public to share similar views about the minor while displaying her picture in the said Facebook post,” the group said in a statement signed by Beatrice Annangfio
The group, which is committed to the empowerment of young girls in the country said President Akufo-Addo must “sanction Mr. Ogyiri by dismissing him from office with immediate effect, as a sign of his government’s commitment to protecting every child from any form of abuse irrespective of their backgrounds.”
