Manchester United star accepts apology from Ghana MP
Manchester United star accepts apology from Ghana MP Isaac Adongo Mr. Adongo said he is a “key player” for Manchester United.
During the budget debate last year, the Member of Parliament Isaac Adongo compared the economic management of Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia to the performances of Maguire on the football field.
Adongo said he wanted to correct the record and praised Maguire as a “transformational footballer” on Tuesday.
In spite of this, he continued to criticize Vice-President Bawumia.
Adding that Maguire is now at the IMF with a cup in hand, he said.
According to Mr Adongo, he expressed his dissatisfaction with Ghana’s economy through Harry Maguire’s struggle for form between 2021-2022.
In the wake of Harry’s improved form, I felt that he deserved an apology. As a football lover, my recognition of his turnaround was important.”
In response to a question about the footballer accepting his apology, Mr Adongo said: “That humility made my day, this brings closure.”
Amidst Ghana’s worst economic crisis in years, Mr Bawumia is the head of the government’s economic management team.
A $3bn (£2.4bn) loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was required due to rising government debt.
Ghana’s inflation rate reached a record high of 54% in December 2022, but has since declined to around 35%.
Adongo compared Bawumia to Maguire a year ago, noting that Maguire “became the biggest threat at the heart of Manchester United’s defence”.
Gareth Southgate has called the mockery “ridiculous treatment” and described him as an “absolute stalwart” for the team.
As well as defending her son, Manchester United star McGuire’s mother called the abuse he experienced “disgraceful” and “unacceptable”.
Because of the agreement, Mr Adongo says the Ghanaian government has had to increase taxes and tariffs on services
