Months after Ghanaian lawmaker Isaac Adongo mocked and apologised to Harry Maguire, the Manchester United star has accepted to move on.
Adongo had mocked Maguire during a parliamentary debate on the budget last year.
During his speech, the opposition lawmaker compared Vice-President Mahamadu Bawumia’s economic management of the embattled West African nation to Maguire’s performance on the pitch.
In an address shared widely on social media last year, Adongo compared Bawumia to Maguire, who he described as “the biggest threat at the centre of the Manchester United defence”.
The reference was part of a wider speech accusing Bawumia of mismanaging the economy and inflicting hardship on citizens in Ghana.
However, Adongo after latest performance by Maguire said, “I now apologise to Harry Maguire. He is a transformational footballer… now scoring goals for Manchester United.”
Responding, Maguire accepted his apology via a post on X, saying, “See you at Old Trafford soon,” he wrote, referring to the home of Manchester United.
Ghmaana is grappling with its worst economic crisis in a generation brought on by spiralling public debt, which has triggered rampant inflation and weakened the local currency.
