The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ahafo Ano North in the Ashanti Region Sanid Adamu Suleman has utterly condemned the act by artisans of Suame Magazine for hooting at the Majority leader in Parliament.
He has criticised and frowned on the approach used by the artisans and has demanded the people of Suame to openly render an apology to the leader.
Irate residents and artisans at Suame Magazine on Monday, July 18, hooted at Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, chanting war songs to register their displeasure over what they describe as lack of infrastructural development in the area.
The Suame lawmaker was on a visit to the industrial hub as part of moves to ascertain the situation to whip contractors in line but was unexpectedly met by the angry artisans.
However, Sanid Suleman speaking to Onua News in an interview expressed fret over the incident describing it as shameful, needless and rebellious which must not be tolerated.
He cited numerous contributions by Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu in Ghana’s Parliament and maintained that he is endowed, highly respected and deserves not to be treated as such by the constituents.
The Ahafo Ano North legislator indicated the Minority leader intended to visit the constituency to ascertain the situation of ongoing projects and as well brief the people about government’s readiness to fast track completion of all projects.
“What I will say is that Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu is such a noble person who has done a lot for Suame and I don’t think he deserves the way he was treated.
“What happened is uncalled for and it must be condemned by everyone because what the people did was totally wrong and I don’t know what came over them to act the way they did,” he stated.
Sanid Suleman further refuted the claim that the government has failed and disappointed the people of the Ashanti Region.
He insisted the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has done a lot for the region in terms of development and entreated the people to exercise patience as the government expedite actions to complete all ongoing projects.
Meanwhile, the artisans have told Akoma FM’s Ibrahim Abubakar that the action they took was a blessing to the constituency following the speed with which their roads are being fixed after the protest.
They had also indicated their unreadiness to render any apology to their MP after the Ashanti Regional MPs caucus in Parliament asked them to apologise.
