Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has said that Minority Chief Whip, Alhaji Muntaka Mohammed Mubarak is dumb.
He told Class News on Friday 22 June 2018 that: “Muntaka is a dumb MP”.
He went further to state that he is “not scared of anybody in this country, I live my life and I’m telling you…you see they consume information and that’s a dumb statement he [Mr Muntaka] has ever made. He is a dumb MP and now I take him on one-on-one”.
“Let him go to the privileges committee that I, Kennedy Agyapong says he is a dumb MP because he did not even listen to the context of the issue and just dragged the matter to [the privileges committee]. Where did I insult parliamentarians?” he questioned.
The Assin MP has promised a showdown at the Privileges Committee which is currently considering a referral by the House to haul him before it for bringing the name of the House into disrepute.
Mr Agyapong is alleged to have denigrated Parliament by using offensive words against the Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary business, Osei Kyei –Mensah- Bonsu.
Mr Muntaka first raised the issue in parliament concerning the alleged insult and the House referred the matter to the privileges committee.
Mr Agyapong who feels uncomfortable by the action of the Asawase constituency MP indicated blatantly that the former is dumb several times during the interview with the press.
