The Assin Central legislator, Kennedy Agyapong has been asked by parliament to apologize to the house and also put up a good behaviour.

This comes after the Privileges Committee recommended to parliament to either suspend or reprimand the lawmaker for referring to the House as useless in a TV interview.

Joy News’ Parliamentary correspondent, Joseph Opoku Gakpo reported on Asempa FM’s 'Ekosii Sen' political program that, parliament concluded that Kennedy Agyapong was “wrong” with his choice of words.

He said the speakers asked him to apologize to the house and “go and sin no more”.

Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak petitioned Parliament last year for action to be taken against Mr. Agyapong for allegedly describing the House as useless in a TV interview, a charge the MP denies.

Mr Agyapong was responding to comments by a New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Regional executive’s comment on the Anas exposé.

He contended that Muntaka Mubarak’s referral was based on comments taken out of context.

Kennedy Agyapong had described Muntaka Mubarak as dumb for referring him to Parliament’s Privileges Committee over the purported insult.

Mr Mubarak insisted that Assin Central MP’s conduct was unfit for someone in the legislature.

After being queried during the committee sittings, Mr Agyapong apologised for making contemptuous comments about the legislature in public.
