Dafeamepkor, Armah Buah attack on Afenyo-Markin: Majority condemns it


Members of the Majority side in Parliament have condemned an attack perpetrated by two MPs from the Minority side on their Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin.

According to the Majority Caucus, what the two MPs did during a press briefing by their Leader and some of their colleagues is uncalled for and must be condemned in no uncertainty.

The Majority said the opposition MPs, especially those from the Volta region are trying to shelve one of the contributing factors to the causes of the tidal waves that have washed many homes away along the coast at Keta in the Volta Region.

They said while addressing the media with pictorial evidence of sand winning activities in Keta along the sea shore, the MP for Ellembelle, Hon Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah stormed there and disrupted the presser with shouting, “It’s a lie, its not true, stop the lies”.

Hon. Armah Buah after some minutes left and came back with his colleague, Member for South Dayi, Rockson Dafeamezkpor to come and listen.

As is usually done, the MPs should have waited for the Majority Leader and his members to finish with their submission and after they have left the podium, then they could come in to react to whatever information the deputy Majority Leader shared with the public.

But this wasn’t the case as Hon. Dafeamekpor, a leading member of the Volta Caucus whisked away the pictorial evidence from the hands of Hon. Afenyo-Markin which he was using to make his case.

Hon. Dafeamekpor also handed the paper to Hon. Helen Adwoa Ntoso who was passing-by when Afenyo-Markin wanted to take his document back from him. But the NDC MP, Hon. Dafeamekpor said he won’t give it to him, because it has become a public document.

Hon. Adwoa Ntoso also took the picture to the cafeteria and showed it to other NDC MPs who were there engaged in conversations.

To the Majority, this uncalled for behaviour attracted a quick response from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Nhyiaso, Hon. Stephen Amoah, who approached Hon. Dafeamekpor and demanded he returns the laminated pictorial evidence of sand winning activities in Keta to Hon. Afenyo-Markin.

Minister for Works and Housing, Hon. Francis Asenso-Boakye had taken the podium and would need the picture as evidence to address the media on the situation and preparations undertaken by the government to solve the problem once and for all.

There were some verbal exchanges from both side, as the Majority saw is bad behavior by the few Minority who were there, especially Hons. Rockson Dafeamekpor and Armah-Bouah Kofi.

This the Majority condemned the two NDC MPs behavour and called them to apologise to the Deputy Majority, Alexander Afenyo-Markins and his other colleagues who were addressing the media.
