On November 23, 2023, at 04:04 AM ET, Manchester United footballer Harry Maguire graciously accepted the apology of Ghanaian MP Isaac Adongo. Adongo had previously made a comparison between Maguire’s on-pitch performance and Vice-President Mahamadu Bawumia’s economic management during a parliamentary debate on the budget last year.

In a speech that gained significant traction on social media, Adongo likened Bawumia’s economic management to Maguire’s role as “the biggest threat at the centre of the Manchester United defence”. This analogy was part of a broader criticism of Bawumia’s handling of the economy and the impact on citizens.

However, during a recent discussion on the 2024 budget, Adongo retracted his comparison and publicly apologized to Maguire. He acknowledged Maguire’s impressive improvement and expressed regret for his previous remarks.

Maguire responded to Adongo’s apology with grace, stating, “MP Issac Adongo’s apology accepted,” on X, a popular social media platform. He also expressed anticipation of Adongo’s visit to Old Trafford in the near future.

This exchange serves as a testament to the mutual respect and sportsmanship between the parties involved.
