Dr. Amoako Baah attacks David Agbee over 'factual inaccuracies'

A Political Analysist and former lecturer with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Dr. Richard Amoako Baah has attacked the academic credentials of the Executive Director of Ghana Institute of Governance and Security (GIGS), Mr. David Agbee calling on him to make “sense”

“David is my student and I thought him well but unfortunately a lot of things he says are factually wrong” he stated.

In a heated debate between the duo in the studios of Kumasi based Ultimate FM, Dr Amoako Baah, a known sympathizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) accused Mr. David Agbee of plagiarism.

“He says the right thing and then adds something else to it. He says that you can copy the constitution. That is called plagiarism if you copy word for word”

The banter came about after Mr. David Agbee earlier made contribution on the programme that there should be a provision in the constitution that allows for party politics learn from governance by “copying or borrowing from American’s constitution”.

“You have gone to the University if you copy somebody’s idea is ok? You do not have to write word for word. Even after writing the Constitution the researcher will quote where they got the ideas” he educates.

Adding “I came to educate people and if I am talking to anybody in the world and what I am saying does not make sense, you don’t have to be a colleague graduate before you agree with me this is right. You have to make sense” threatening to live the studios.
