The Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr Clement Apaak, appears to still be unhappy that the actions of some of his colleague National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs), who defied the orders of the party to disapprove new appointees of president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
In a letter addressed to the “traitors,” which was shared on social media, on Sunday, Dr Apaak accused the MPs of betraying the NDC members and Ghanaians.
He added that the said MPs will pay for the insults that are being meted at innocent NDC parliamentarians because of their actions.
“I pray you are found out and publicly shamed, but even if you are not found out, your conscience will forever haunt you.
“The pain and agony your treachery has caused millions of party supporters and Ghanaians is upon your head.
“You will pay for the tears and sorrow of all those you have betrayed. You will pay for the insults, name calling and false accusations your treachery has brought upon innocent colleagues.
“May you never find peace until you confess, repent and ask for forgiveness,” Dr Apaak’s letter concluded.
Parliament approves all six nominees, two Supreme Court Justices:
Parliament on Friday, March 24 approved all six ministerial nominees as well as the nominees of the supreme court of President Akufo-Addo after a heated debate, 24 hours prior, and a tense voting process.
