Ningo-Prampram MP Samuel Nartey George says he and his colleagues are not scared of losing their seats in Parliament due to their continuous boycott of parliamentary proceedings.
According to him, they are prepared to resist President Akufo-Addo’s persecution of their colleague Assin North MP, James Gyakye Quayson.
He said the conduct of President Akufo-Addo will make him the worse president in Ghana’s history.
The outspoken politician speaking in an interview with Citi FM on Tuesday, July 18, said they (NDC MPs) are resolved at boycotting parliamentary business.
He insisted that even if that will cost them their seats in Parliament, they are willing and prepared to pay the price.
“Akufo-Addo will go down in the history of this country as the worst president and most undemocratic person. And we must resist him at every turn if it means losing 137 seats in Parliament.”
“They should declare the 137 seats vacant and let’s have a by-election. After all that will bring a lot of development to our 137 constituencies because that is their stalking,” he said.
The Minority has already boycotted the business of Parliament four times.
Members of the caucus disclosed their decision to boycott Parliamentary business on Quayson’s trial days when he was sworn in on July 4.
They have carried through with the threats and their actions hindered parliamentary proceedings with the Speaker, Alban Bagbin cautioning the caucus that the action is against the Standing Orders of the House.
Alban Bagbin thus ruled that the Minority’s boycott of business activities without an official notification and approval from him amounts to a breach of the standing orders of the house which could lead to members of the group losing their seats.
But the NDC MPs insist their action will only be halted if the ongoing criminal case against its colleague, James Gyakye Quayson is dropped.
