However, a timely intervention from the Chief of Staff, Mrs. Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, who summoned the leadership of the workers union to an emergency meeting, saved the situation from getting worse.

LeBron James has hit back at Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s claim that athletes like him should keep out of politics and stick to their sport. The AC Milan forward called out the basketball icon on Friday, saying that he was taking advantage of his status. “[LeBron] is phenomenal at what he’s doing, but I don’t like it when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time,” Ibrahimovic told the media.
“I will never shut up about things that are wrong,” James replied. “I preach about my people and I preach about equality. Social injustice, racism, systematic voter suppression, things that go on in our community.”
