A former presidential staffer under the erstwhile Mahama administration, Ben Dotsei Malor has chided the National Communications Officer of the opposition NDC, Sammy Gyamfi over his failure to apologise for his “cartoon post.”

He joins several thousands of Ghanaians nationwide, who also find everything wrong with the post, to pile pressure on the young politician to do the needful.

Sammy Gyamfi has been heavily criticised and shamed by Ghanaians enraged by his “insensitive” and “cheap political” cartooned social media post depicting the death of African-American, George Floyd to make a case against the Electoral Commission (EC) and the governing New Patriotic Party.

Ghanaians have had cause to question his intelligence for uploading the image which seeks to suggest voters are being choked to death by the EC and government akin to how George Floyd was murdered by white American police.

Apologise for your reckless and infantile cartoon post – Coalition ‘hustles’ Sammy Gyamfi

He has been urged to delete the picture and apologise for his action.

One of the posts on twitter read: “Sammy Gyamfi has made a mess of himself and NDC as a political party. He should delete the thing and apologise not only to Ghanaians but the whole world for using a hashtag meant to bring justice and stop racism to mock and do petty politics.”

Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie in a similar tweet also urged Mr. Gyamfi to “retract and take it down” indicating that the issue is “serious and very sensitive.”

But Sammy Gyamfi won’t succumb to the pressure.

He has rather justified his post saying there is “nothing wrong with sharing a cartoon which draws a parallel between the painful xenophobic murder of George Floyd, and the evil attempt by the EC to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through the xenophobic voter register.”

But the former Head of Communications and Spokesperson at the Office the President during Mahama’s tenure who does not seem satisfied with the justification of the “cartoon guy” has enjoined him to man up and apologise immediately.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Mr. Dotsei Malor wrote “Ghana, has the ‘cartoon guy’ apologized yet? Does he realise that what is wrong is wrong? Could he man up please?”
