Some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency have called on Kojo Oppong Nkrumah to render an unqualified apology to their Member of Parliament, John Jinapor.
According to them, the insinuation labeled on John Jinapor in Parliament on Friday will by the Minister of Information will not be condoned.
A statement issued by NDC’s Yapei Kusawgu arm and signed by Constituency Secretary Latif lddi Atingpo on Sunday, 16 August 2020, said the minister apologise for using the “derogatory slang” to describe their MP since it connotes “wandering man”.
According to the statement: “The chiefs, indigenes, elders, opinion leaders, imams, pastors, youth, women groups and the good people of Yapei Kusawgu Constituency find this conduct by the minister as very unfortunate, unacceptable and disrespectful.”
The statement said it is “so sad, shameful and scandalous to have emanated from a whole minister of state, who is expected to show moral uprightness in all his affairs, especially, when it has to do with Parliament, a law making arm of government, but not descend that low …”
