How Dare You Gag Me…Don’t You Know I Wrote Ghana’s Constitution? -Asiedu Nketia

General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has once again established his displeasure over calls on him to shy away from cameras and microphones that chase him for his personally views on the aftermath of every Supreme Court sitting.

A directive by the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) urged media houses not to grant Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie platforms to interpret events that transpired at the Supreme Court because both General Secretaries had adopted styles of twisting whatever they saw or heard.

But in an interview with Okay FM, the former deputy minister for Food and Agriculture forewarned associations on a mission to sideline from speaking to the media to be mindful of the fact that he was part of the team that “wrote and ensured that Ghana has a constitution”.

“I was at the Consultative Assembly when we framed the constitution,” he said.

Having served as Member of Parliament for Wenchi West for twelve good years, General Mosquito as the NDC scribe is affectionately called noted that he finds it fascinating for people who have no idea of where the country’s law emanated from to attempt to gag him from expressing himself.

“I want to know if our lawyers don’t rely on the laws enacted in parliament to discharge their duties. I have toiled as a parliamentarian for twelve years and I was part of those who made laws to govern our nation. Don’t I have the right to comment on issues after serving in parliament?” he asked.
