Hon. Joe Ghartey, Former Attorney General has stepped beyond political and governmental outfit to engage with some citizens of Akwatia Line in Kumasi.
In these turbulent times that many people are going through a lot and know not what to do, some of the simplest things we could do as citizens, sometimes, is to call on our fellow indigenes to check on them if not to commune with them or break bread.
The thoroughbred Lawyer was elated about the heartfelt reception he had from them. In a social media post he made from his Instagragm page, he writes…
“Politics is about big things but it is also about small things. It’s about making friends and friends becoming family. I spent a thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends who have become family, drinking ataya and having an interesting conversation at Akwatia Line in Kumasi… 2/11/22”
