Ashanti Regional Communications Officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC] Abass Nurideen says actions by Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament [MP] for Assin Central constituency depicts clearly the power he has over the laws of the country.
“Kennedy Agyapong is a living example to show that the laws of Ghana do not work under the administration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” he said.
Speaking on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ newspaper discussion segment , Alhaji Nurideen indicated he does not understand why Kennedy Agyapong should have the guts to exchange words with a leader of parliament for taking the right step to keep him in shape.
“What is wrong for a leader of the house to talk to the privileges committee concerning some comments made by a member of the house . . . Does it call for the member of the house to insult its leader for making the right decision in curbing issues of the house?” he asked.
He further called on the President and his men to maintain the peace that rein and be very careful on how security issues are being handled in the country.
There was drama in Parliament on Wednesday morning when some Parliamentarians had to physically restrain two of their colleagues from opposite sides of the political divide; the NPP Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong and NDC Member of Parliament Asawase, Muntaka Mubarak, from exchanging in fisticuffs.
But for the timely intervention of some MPs in the august House, it was likely things would have taken a worse turn, as the two MPs were only limited to trading insults on the Floor of the House ahead of sitting.
The MP for Asawase constituency and Minority Whip, Hon Mubarak Muntaka has since expressed regret over the hot verbal exchanges that ensued between himself and the MP for Assin Central Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyepong yesterday(Wednesday).
