North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has asked Ghanaians to accept the apology offered by the embattled American rapper, Meek Mill over the shooting of a music video at the Jubilee House.
According to him, the apology offered is and should be accepted entirely.
Mr Ablakwa however, doubted the rapper’s claim that he did the shoot without the permission of the Presidency.

In his view, if that is said to be true, then the President is not safe.
“It does appear Meek Mill’s multiple apologies to Ghanaians are quite sincere & should be accepted by all.
My only serious reservation, however, is his claim that he engaged in all that deplorable desecration & major security breach on the blind side of officials. Is the President safe?
Is Ghana safe? This has, without a scintilla of doubt, further justified earlier demands for urgent investigations & severe sanctions,” he said in a tweet on Tuesday.
A teaser of the rapper’s music video posted on social media featured some parts of the Jubilee House including a lectern at the Presidency.
Meek Mill was seen in the company of a group of other backers rapping at the seat of government.
The content of the video has since generated backlash from Ghanaians as they say the act has compromised the security of the Jubilee House.
According to the critics, since the Jubilee House is the embodiment of Ghana’s executive authority, it is inappropriate for the singer to have been allowed to access it in that manner.
The critics have therefore lambasted the Presidency for allowing the Jubilee House to ‘cheapened’.
Meanwhile, Meek Mill himself has deleted the video from his Instagram page in the wake of the raging public backslash.
The American rapper has also apologised for posting his controversial music video.
In a tweet on Monday evening, the singer said it was not his intention to disrespect Ghanaians.
