The Manchester United and England defender Harry Maguire has responded to a statement made by Isaac Adongo, a member of parliament from Ghana, expressing apologies for drawing comparisons between his on the job performances and the economic management of Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia of that country.

Adongo compared Maguire's and Bawumia's performances in a video during a parliamentary session last year, saying, "He became the biggest threat, tackling Manchester players and giving opponents assists." Mr. Speaker, when you see the opponents go to score, Maguire will score for them.”

Adongo called Maguire a "transformational footballer" during the 2024 budget debate in the parliament, and he added that the vice president now "roams at the IMF with a cup in hand" in a video that went viral on social media on Tuesday.

He said, “If you remember last year, I was very quick to compare [vice-president] Mahamudu Bawumia to Harry Maguire,’ he said. ‘Mr Speaker, I now apologise to Harry Maguire.

Mr Chairman, you got very angry when I used your defender as an example. Today, Maguire has turned the corner; he’s a transformational footballer. Harry Maguire is now scoring goals for Manchester United.

“Mr Speaker Harry Maguire is now a key player for Manchester United; as for our Maguire, he is now roaming at the high heavens with a cup in hand.

“As for our Maguire, the economic Maguire, he was able to get pensioners to leave their homes and come and parade in the streets.”

Reacting to the video, Maguire posted on X, saying he’s accepted Adongo’s apology.

His words: “MP Issac Adongo apology accepted. See you at Old Trafford soon.”
