'You can’t threaten chief warriors in NDC with moustache'-A.B.A Fuseini to Speaker

The overly fired up Member of Parliament (MP) for Sagnarigu, Alhaji A.B.A. Fuseini has signaled the 1st Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Joseph Osei Owusu to forget about ever threatening or forcing the Minority members in the House to render an unqualified apology to the newly sworn in Ayawaso West Wuogon MP, Lydia Alhassan for tagging her as "bloody widow".

The Speaker described the ‘bloody widow’ comment as unparliamentary and demanded that the minority apologise.

But according to A.B.A Fuseini, the loud demand for apology by the Speaker was unfair and constitutes an attempt to intimidate and cow the minority side into recognizing the “illegitimately elected” Ayawaso West MP whose election was characterized by an “unprecedented bloodshed”. 

He insisted that “nobody can threaten and intimidate any of us in NDC because you can’t threaten chief warrior with a moustache”. 

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa Fm Wednesday evening, Alhaji A.B.A. Fuseini maintained that “not a single one of us will be intimidated -they can do their worse. And I want to emphasise that we will never ever and I repeat we will never ever apologise on this matter because we believe in the sanctity of our course”.

The opposition members in Parliament have in the last few days demonstrated their displeasure against the violence recorded in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by-election and have since declared their intention not to recognize the winner of the by-election, who is one of the widows of the late MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanten Agyarko.
As a result, they staged a walk out during her swearing in by the 1st Deputy Speaker, and crowned their action with placards tagging the sworn in MP, Lydia Alhassan as “bloody widow”. The Minority MPs are also demanding justice for their colleague MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George who was assaulted and 13 other NDC supporters who sustained bullet wounds at the by-election. The violence was perpetrated by a group of macho men in police vehicles believed to be members of the NPP vigilante group, the Invisible Forces. However, the Ghana Police Service is yet to come out with their findings. The tagging of Ms. Lydia Alhassan (MP) as “bloody widow” has received widespread condemnation virtually just as the violence that took place at the by-election. That notwithstanding, the Majority in Parliament has also held a press conference demanding apologies from the Minority side for being “insensitive to widows and womanhood”. The Sagnarigu MP maintain that the minority would never ever render any apology to anyone over their action. Saying “the grandfather of the one who will apologise for that action is not yet born”.
