It appears some Members of Parliament (MPs) belonging to the National Democratic Congress (NDC), especially, those from the Volta Region, are not telling Ghanaians the truth about the root cause of the recent tidal waves that have wreaked havoc and displaced hundreds of households in some communities in Keta.
Their action became clear when they physically attacked the deputy Majority Leader of Parliament, Hon. Alexander Afenyo-Markin, on Friday, November 12, 2021, when he was in front of the cameras addressing the media with pictorial evidence of sand winning activities in Keta.
Hon. Afenyo-Markin was in the process of showing printed pictures of sand winning activities in Keta to the media and had told them that was the root cause of the tidal waves in some communities in Keta.
While addressing the media, the NDC MP for Ellembelle, Hon. Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah stormed the place and disrupted the presser with shouts.
He then walked away and in less than a minute returned to the company of the NDC MP for South Dayi, Hon. Rockson Dafiamekpor.
Journalists covering Hon. Afenyo-Markin’s briefing had anticipated that perhaps, the NDC MPs will wait, listen to what the deputy Majority Leader was telling the press, and counter react after he has done with his submission.
Alas, that wasn’t the case as Hon. Dafiamekpor, a key member of the Volta Caucus, rushed to the podium and whisked the laminated pictorial evidence from the hands of Hon. Afenyo-Markin away to the cafeteria and showed it to Hon. Helen Adwoa Ntoso.
Hon. Dafiamekpor had contested the pictorial evidence of sand winning activities in Keta, a position which Hon. Ntoso affirmed, stressing that the said community where the picture was taken was not in Keta.
His uncalled for behaviour attracted a quick response from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Nhyiaso, Hon. Stephen Amoah, who approached Hon. Dafiamekpor and demanded he returns the laminated pictorial evidence of sand winning activities in Keta to Hon. Afenyo-Markin.
