Tema West Member of Parliament Carlos Ahenkorah is heartbroken that the NDC now has the power to dictate to the NPP in Parliament.
The lawmaker made this known in a statement he issued on the party’s loss during the election of Speaker of Parliament.
“I must say I am heartbroken and dejected. We’ve not seen the end of this yet. With this success, they would tell us what they want and what they don’t in parliament because the whip system has been compromised.”
To him, the NPP cannot always be threatened by the NDC.
“This is so sad. I’ll die for my party any day. I did it for the grassroots who relied on us in power to survive, the president who needs some peace to run the country and the greater NPP party as a whole because we cannot always allow the NDC to threaten and vilify us.”
The MP however, rendered an unqualified for snatching ballot papers in Parliament when the election of the Speaker of Parliament was ongoing.
“I apologise though to my family and friends both far and near who may be affected by my actions. The NPP in me couldn’t be controlled. I apologise but I tried!!!”.
