Former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani who was found absconding hours before the Taliban took a seizure at the country’s heartland Kabul last month has now come with the latest message, where Ghani is seen apologizing to the people of Afghanistan for leaving the country abruptly.
Ghani said, ‘it was the only way to keep the guns silent and save Kabul and her six million people.” The absconding leader was traced in UAE after the country’s foreign ministry disclosed Ashraf’s hideout and exclaimed that the government has welcomed Ghani and his family on the basis of humanitarian grounds.
After Ghani’s departure in hush hours, the leader was drawn back like a coward by Afghan citizens, who still now consider the president to be selfish, brutal, and a backstabber. In a Twitter statement, Ghani said “I owe the Afghan people an explanation for leaving Kabul abruptly on August 15 after Taliban unexpectedly entered the city. I left at the urging of the palace security who advised me that to remain risked setting off the same horrific street-to-street fighting the city had suffered during the Civil War of the 90s”.
“Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision of my life”, the 72-year-old politician said. Furthermore, Ghani retaliated claims of stealing millions of money from the government’s treasury while fleeing the country.
