So on the 7th of January, 2021 a lot of things happened on the floor of parliament till the point where Hon. Alban Bagbin was finally sworn in as the SPEAKER of the 8th parliament of the 4th Republic of Ghana.
The major highlight of the day was the npp MP elect for Tema West Constituency, Carlos Ahenkorah snatched ballot papers upon realizing that the npp nominee for the position of speaker of parliament, Mike Ocquaye had lost the elections. He managed to chew and swallow two of the ballot papers he snatched like a he-goat but was treated like a common thief caught at Kejetia when he was caught.
Carlos Ahenkorah is now out there telling us that “THE NPP IN HIM MADE HIM ENGAGE IN THAT SHAMEFUL ACT”. Yes, this is the defense being put up by Carlos and the npp but it does not surprise any Ghanaian who knows the npp inside out. It’s either the interest of the npp or Ghana can burn and they don’t care. Yes, “THE NPP IN ALL MEMBERS OF THE NPP REMAINS THE BANE OF GHANA’S FORWARD MARCH”.
The npp in npp members is the reason why media outlets like radio gold and many others were deliberately closed down and 1000s of people lost their jobs. They did not care because those media outlets were serving the interest of Ghanaians and not the interest of the npp. The npp in npp members is the reason why a lot of Ghanaians have their monies locked up in financial institutions in the name of banking sector cleanup. They did not care because your monies getting locked up in the collapsed banks served the interest of the npp. The npp in npp members is the reason why citizens were killed during the 2020 elections. They did not care about the lives lost because it served the interest of the npp. The npp in npp members is the reason why Kobby Rana was not allowed to premiere his movie in the name of covid 19 protocols but Amewu was allowed to organize jams with Shatta Wale in Hohoe within same period. They did not care about the loses Kobby incurred because his movie was a reflection of what’s actually happening in Ghana today under Nana Addo and his npp government and did not serve the interest of the npp.
The actions of Carlos Ahenkorah on the floor of parliament on December 7th and his words outside parliament since then confirms the thinking of the npp and the motivation behind the actions of since tete. It’s either the npp’s interest or Ghana should forget about its forward march. The interest of Ghana and it’s forward march means nothing to the npp once the interest of the npp is involved and that’s the “NPP IN ALL NPP MEMBERS” as highlighted by Carlos Ahenkorah.
To end this, let me say a big thank you to the NDC MPs who were in the Parliament House on the 7th of January for showing “THE GHANA IN THEM” and ensuring that the interest of Ghana won over the interest of the npp at the end of the day despite the npp’s use of judicial, military, police, Parliament House Marshalls, clerk of parliament and snatching of ballot papers antics to influence the process to serve the npp’s interest.
God bless our homeland Ghana……. And help us to resist oppressor’s rule!!!
