Apologise to Torgbui Fiti or we boycott your next SONA- Volta MPs to Akufo-Addo
Volta Regional Members of Parliament are mounting intense pressure on President Akufo-Addo to retract and render apology to Paramount Chief of Aflao Traditional Area Torgbui Amenya Fiti V for his derogatory remarks he made about the traditional ruler over abandoned E-block project in Aflao started by erstwhile Mahama Administration.
President Akufo-Addo asked Torgbui Fiti to complete the E-block in his area if he is frustrated with the failure of NPP government to complete the project stated by Mahama-led Administration. This was after Torgbui Fiti gave Education Minister ultimatum to complete the E-block and open it.
The derogatory remarks received a backlash from many and caught the anger of Volta Caucus lawmakers who are demanding immediate retraction and render of apology from the President Akufo-Addo.
In a sharp rebuttal, MP for Ketu South Abla Dzifa Gomashie who spoke on behalf of the Volta Caucus of Parliament said “You are not that disrespectful to chiefs, retract and apologise to Torgbui Fiti or we will stage a walk out if you come to parliament”.
