KT Hammond has lashed out at the youth after the unfriendly reception they gave to President Akufo-Addo at the Global Citizen Festival.
The Adansi Asokwa MP reacting to the incident described the youth as 'empty coconut heads' and said they should know their limit and learn to pay respect to the elderly.
According to him, the President did not say anything bad and wasn't even on a political platform to be treated that way.
He explained it is the elderly who are called to settle matters when there is an issue because of their wise counselling and not the empty-coconut heads youth.
He called on the youth to exercise patience and stop raining insults on the elderly because of politics.
He added that it's 'not possible for the country to be left in the hands of the youth to steer affairs' because the youth cannot run it.
