Senior Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil has depicted as vile Ablekuma West MP, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful choice to sit on an individual associate, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh’s lap.
Denouncing all upheavals that happened during the initiation of the eighth Parliament on Thursday, January 7, he said the previous Communications Minister’s activity in the House attacks the ethical affectability of the populace.
“The circumstance of Ursula Owusu sitting on an individual MP’s lap is jolting and irritates a wide range of sensitivities.
“Despite the fact that no one is amazing except for in the Chamber of Parliament those things have a specific impact and they will in general be amplified,” he disclosed to Samson Anyenini on Joy FM’s Newsfile Saturday.
Disarray emitted in Parliament before the disintegration of the 7thparliament when Mrs Owusu-Ekuful demanded to involve her seat notwithstanding the takeover of the lion’s share side of the walkway by the NDC.
The NDC MPs required her to abandon her seat and join her partners at the Minority side of the house causing a scuffle simultaneously.
Clarifying his side of the story, Juaboso MP, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh said he never agreed to Ursula Owusu, sitting on his lap.
He expressed that when Mrs Owusu got up from the seat to go to the restroom, he went to involve that seat, focusing on that, it was not his shortcoming for the episode.
“We sat at the lion’s share side, the right-hand side of where the speaker sits. So when they came in, every one of them moved to the minority, the left side and plunked down. Ursula would not go to that side.
He told JoyNews “… And when she returned [from what he accepts may have been the washroom], she sat on my lap. She just sat on my lap. I would not like to contact her.”
Taking note of that the warmed quarrel might have been stayed away from, Mr Bentil stated, “Someone went into someone’s space, demanding that they planned to sit some place. The name Parliament, itself signifies, ‘Talking’. That implies you don’t do anything forcibly, it ought to be the adequacy of your contention.”
The legitimate professional albeit respected the development of the eighth Parliament which has broken ‘the champ brings home all the glory’ disorder in the nation’s majority rule government, he exhorted that concession and exchange ought to be a basic instrument to stay away from another administrative humiliation.
“MPs indicated the most extreme disdain for the House that is something intense. This is on the grounds that we have this feeling of Parliament that is where genuine work is done, laws are passed. They check the Executives and all so seeing them the manner in which we saw them was truly dismal.
