If you go to the school, they will tell you about my exploit.” He revealed in an interview with senior media practitioner, Kojo Marfo on Kumasi-based Abusua FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com

Background

The 49-year-old who prefers to be referred to as the ‘opposition Chief whip’ left Ghanaians in shock when he gave colleague Member of Parliament(MP) for Tema West, Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah a hot chase as though he was on a relay to retrieve snatched ballots during a voting exercise in parliament to elect speaker of the house.

The NPP MP however explained in a statement that he snatched the ballot papers during the chaotic election to give President Nana Akufo-Addo “peace of mind to run the country.”

“It’s a very tough situation to have opposition as a speaker especially when he’s the president in the absence of Nana Addo and his vice not to mention how parliament would function by passing the president’s policies and laws to pave way for development.”
