There was near-blows in Parliament yesterday night after Speaker of the Legislative House, Hon Mike Ocuay, had differed ruling to today, on what the next cause of action should be, following the refusal by Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, to apologise to the House; after an ad hoc committee of Parliament had found him guilty of contempt of parliament in their report.


 “I will not countenance any acts of disloyalty or subversion of your Minister, for I will take such an act as disloyalty to me, and, by inference, disloyalty to the Party and the State. Any Deputy, who thinks the route to advancement lies in your ability to subvert or undermine your Minister, will be sadly mistaken. You will not profit from that conduct in Akufo-Addo’s presidency.”

Dr Ayew Afriyie, Member of Parliament for Asokore Mampong has called on the national security to as a matter of urgency review the decision by President Akufo Addo not to purchase a car for his official use, saying that it is "unhealthy" for the president to use a 'rickety' car.
