The National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) has apologised to Ghanaians for assaulting the National Communication Officer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) during a televised radio broadcast on Friday, February 1 2019.

The video of the incident which has since gone on social media shows Nana B pushing Mr Gyamfi’s head during a heated moment on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen political talk show.

According to Nana B, regardless of the provocative conduct of Mr Gyamfi which included unacceptable verbal attacks on the President, he should not have responded violently.

"Regardless of the repulsive, provocative conduct by the NDC's National Communication Director on the show, which included unacceptable verbal attacks on the President and myself, I am, upon sober reflection, apologising to listeners of Asempa FM and Ghanaians for the manner in which I responded," the statement said.
