Suhum brawl: NPP Communicators Demands Apology From MP

Aggrieved Eastern Regional Communicators of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) have suspended communication relating to the Member of Parliament (MP) for Suhum Constituency, Boafo Kwadjo Asante on matters involving him.

According to them, they are disappointed in the MP for looking on unconcerned when their colleague was attacked and injured.

They are demanding unqualified apology from the MP for allowing the violence incident to occur.

Touching on what really transpired on that Saturday August 28, 2021 fracas in a statement issued by the communicators, the communicators said they requested to join the entourage of the MP to express pleasantries to the bereaved family when they attended the funeral of the late father of their colleague.

“After informing the PA of the MP of Suhum Constituency of our decision, we were clearly informed that the MP does not recognise any of us as members; hence we cannot join his entourage in exchanging of pleasantries to our dear brother,” it stated.

However, the MP in a statement issued yesterday August 30, 2021 has denied that his personal driver was involved in the incident after unreservedly condemning the entire incident.

Mr Asante stated categorically that the conflict has nothing to do with the Vice President, Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia neither has it anything to do with the Trade and Industry Minister, John Alan Kyeremanten.

He further stated that no dangerous implement such as cutlass was picked from his car to cause harm during the brawl.

The MP also sympathised with anyone who have been affected by the incident and wished the injured persons speedy recovery.

Mr Kwadjo Asante therefore called on his constituents to remain calm as he asked the police to expedite action in investigating the case and pledged to cooperate and support in resolving the matter.
