Ghanaian rapper and entrepreneur Michael Owusu Addo known professionally as Sarkodie, has reacted to the confusion and several indecent actions that orchestrated during Thursday dawn’s Speaker of Parliament election.
Earlier today, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament, clad in white, moved to sit on the right side of the Speaker to indicate they were in the majority which sparked serious controversy.
Later the issue of allowing the MP-elect for Assin North, Richard Quayson to vote in the election came up strongly as the Clerk who superintended over the voting process indicated that he would not allow him to cast his ballot because a court injunction had been granted to bar him from holding himself out as the MP.
The debate over whether or not he should be allowed to vote was subsequently resolved and the NDC MP was allowed to cast his ballot.
During the counting of the ballots, the Member of Parliament for Tema West and former Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah ran to the table and snatched the uncounted ballots of Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye and attempted to bolt with it.
The Chief Whip on the NDC side and MP for Asawase, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak immediately went after him and secured the ballots.
Reacting to this, Sarkodie said the conduct of individuals elected to represent the people of Ghana in such demeanor amounts to indiscipline.
He said “We just throw around the “Honorable” Title”.
