A National Communications Team Member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kofi Antwi has said that the party felt betrayed when two of its members voted for the NDC’s Alban Bagbin to become the Speaker of Parliament.
According to him, those who voted for Alban Babgin do not deserve to be in there as NPP Parliamentarians because they did not consider and believe in the interest of the party.
Speaking on Atinka TV’s morning show, Ghana Nie, hosted by Nana Owusu Nkrumah, Kofi Antwi said,”I feel it was a betrayal because it is the NPP that nomonited you to represent the party and if an independent candidate will vote for the NPP, and you who we have sent to represent the party cannot vote for the NPP, then the person does not deserve to be there”
He also said the NDC had planned to make Akufo-Addo’s term ungovernable and will do anything to achieve that.
“The NDC’s are smart people when it comes to creating something controversial. When they plan something, they execute it, they do not care even if someone will die for them to succeed. They want to make Akufo-Addo’s reign ungovernable and so they will do it at the expense of the nation without care.”
For his part, the National Communications Team Member NDC, Mr TT. Caternor, also said they went with a mind of unity and were sure Alban Babgin would win.
He thanked those who voted for Alban Bagin to become the speaker, saying Mike Oquaye should have retired long ago because he was not fit for the job.
“This parliament is not going to be the same where the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensa Bonsu will bring a bill and tell the NDC that if they like they should come or not because they have the numbers to pass the bill. All those things will stop. Some of the bills even go at dawn, and they pass it. Today, we thank God that things have changed, it is not that you have 169, it is 137, 137 and so before you can pass something, you have to explain why it has to be passed.
