National Security Minister to Answer to Parliament over Meek Mill Video

Source The Ghana Report

The Parliamentary Select Committee on Defense and Interior has indicated that it will invite the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah to explain to parliament how US Rapper, Meek Mill shot a music video at the Jubilee House.

According to James Agalga, a Ranking Member of the Committee, the Jubilee House is a national security installation hence the decision to question the Minister.

“The security of our president could easily be compromised by the conduct of that musician. So we need to call into question the conduct of the head of security of the presidency and as a committee, we will be looking into the matter.

“We definitely will invite the National Security Minister and question him about the protocols that are in place at the Jubilee House,” Mr Agalga said.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament(MP) for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has also said the Minority will push to ensure sanctions against persons who allowed Meek Mill to shoot a music video, with explicit lyrics, at the Jubilee House.

“Sanctions must be meted out to those in charge of security. There’s always someone who gives final authorization, who opens the doors, who is in charge of security at the Jubilee House. All those people in the chain of command, who have brought this monumental disgrace to this country must be shown the exit.

“I can assure you that this not a matter that we in the opposition will raise and allow it to die out. We in the Minority will pursue this matter vigorously. We will continue to demand answers as a house with a constitutional mandate of oversight. We will pursue this matter and ensure that sanctions do apply. This also poses a security risk even to successive governments,” the MP added.

Background

American rapper Meek Mill who was in Ghana some weeks ago for a performance released a music video for his new song and this has angered some sections of Ghanaians.

The video for the music was shot at the Jubilee House a security installation and the residence of the President of the country.

Netizens after seeing the video questioned why the Government would allow the musician to shoot a music video at Flagstaff house when even Ghanaians find it hard to access the same place.

Meanwhile, the rapper has rendered an apology to Ghanaians after deleting the video.

In a tweet on Monday evening, the singer said it was not his intention to disrespect Ghanaians.

“To the people of Ghana, no video I drop is ever meant to disrespect the people of Ghana …. The fastest way to make a connection is through music and I wanted to do that by displaying art … I’m in my 30s from America and didn’t know much about the lifestyle here”, he tweeted.
