Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has severely chastised the US President Donald Trump over his ‘shithole’ comment which has generated anger in some African countries.
The controversial US President during a meeting on immigration is said to have described some African countries as ‘shitholes’.
The President said Ghana is certainly not a “shithole country’ and that its citizens will not accept such insults from powerful Presidents.
‘The language of US President Donald Trump that the African continent, Haiti and El Salvador are “shithole countries” is extremely unfortunate. Ghana is certainly not a “shithole country”. We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful,’ Nana Addo wrote on his Facebook page.
Mr Trump has come out to deny the statement saying those were not his words.
Leaders of the African Union (AU) have also condemned the US President calling on him to render an apology to Africans.
