VIDEO: Wife of the Vice President, Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthurapologizes for her 'chalk' outburst

The Second Lady, Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has apologised for scolding the headmistress of a school in the Eastern Region, who requested some educational materials from the government.
The incident provoked condemnation among a section of the public, prompting the second lady to apologise Saturday when she spoke at an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jack and Jill School in Accra.
Mrs Amissah-Arthur said: On Wednesday, I went to Kukurantumi to make a presentation of five computers and 500 books to the Presby Basic School upon a request I received. A comment I made has been in the media since then.
“I have for some years now been supporting them in my own small way by making donations to them.
“I was completely taken aback when the headmistress asked for chalk. My response was intended to encourage community participation in the school. If what I said has offended people I use this opportunity to say ‘I’m very sorry’.”
