A civil society women’s group, has called on well-meaning Ghanaians to shun and disregard the tantrums of the dishonorable sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central in the Central Region.
The group said, Kennedy Adjapong, must be brought to book for his inhumanly attack on the person of the Commissioner of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, at the campaign launch of Patricia Appiaagyei, also an MP for Asokwa and a member of the parliamentary Caucus of Women in Parliament.
The outburst by the MP that Madam Osei, got her EC Commissioner Job on “sex for job’ basis, is unfortunate and condemnable.
The group called, the Ghana Federation of Gender Development and Network International (GEDNET), is worried why Ghanaians keep entertaining the debate on whether the dishonorable Member of Parliament, should be condemned and further prevented from holding himself as such.
According to the group, the actions of the MP, is fasting becoming nauseating when it comes to his posture with women in particular.
First it was Afia Schwargenegger; known in private life as Valentina Nana Afia Agiewaa of Ok FM, a radio station operated by Despite Group of Companies and now the Electoral Commissioner.
A statement delivered by Catherine Denyu and signed by one Miss Ajara, the Executive Secretary of GEDNET, mince no words to say the MP’s actions and the manner in which he carries himself, validates the increasing impunity from Ghanaian political leaders.
It is unsettling that, Ghanaians continue to harbor dishonourable members of the Legislature in this twenty first century, when women issues have been taken a notch higher.
The statement further called on the Catholic Bishop’s Conference, the leadership of the Moslem Communities, the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), as well as the leadership of the opposition New Patriotic Party to call the MP to order.
The group threatened to stage series of demonstrations across the country against the MP, if no action is taken on the part of the Legislature against the self -styled Assin Dompem billionaire.
