Deputy Speaker Deserves Hot Slap To Stop Misbehaving - Asiedu Nketiah
The General Secretary of NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has said the first deputy speaker of parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu deserves a slap to also put him in check in parliament. Addressing the NDC Ashanti Youth wing in Kumasi over the weekend, the NDC’s General Secretary justified why slapping the biased Deputy Speaker of the
Parliament is a good call when he decides to preside in un-parliamentary legal style to satisfy his party interest. He then stressed that so long as impunity will not stop, resistance has been imposed on us as a duty. So if a Deputy Speaker who is also supposed to be a referee assumes the role of a player on the field and decides to
be part of penalty kicks in a game, you don’t hesitate to give him some slaps for him to behave with the utmost propriety, the General Scribe of the main opposition told the NDC youth wing. Meanwhile, Economist and New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, Kwame Pianim says he’ll also refuse to ascribe Members of Parliament the title
‘Honourable’ due to their unruly actions displayed in the House recently. Addressing Ghanaians at the launch of the John Evans Atta-Mills Memorial Heritage in Accra on Tuesday, Mr Pianim noted that the scuffle witnessed across the globe will have a toll on Ghana’s reputation as the beacon of democracy. I now refuse to address
any Parliamentarian as honourable. (They are) dimming Ghana’s bright brand as a beacon of democracy so I will also not address any of them as honourable until they apologize to the nation, he also said.
