Hon. James Gunu, a Former District Chief Executive of Akatsi North who is the current Volta Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), has called for the arrest of leaders and members of a group called Coalition of MMDCEs(COMAS) for their threat on the life of the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin.
His call comes after the group warned that they will resist any attempt, spearheaded by the Speaker of Parliament to do what they have described as a ‘Parliamentary coup’.
According to them, the circumstances surrounding the rejection of the 2022 budget on Friday, November 26, 2021, was geared towards making Ghana ungovernable, plugging the nation into state of emergency.
“The Coalition is of the view that everything that happened was a well-rehearsed mission intended to topple the government of the NPP,” they stated in a press release issued on Monday, November 29, signed by the President of COMAS, Obrempong Frimpong Emmanuel.
Reacting to their action, Mr. Gunu stated that the leaders and members of the group have confirmed their suspicion of government’s diabolic plans against the Rt. Hon. Speaker Alban Bagbin.
In a statement copied to InsiderGH.com, Mr. Gunu stated that the manner in which the group is reacting to recent developments in Parliament exposes their level of ignorance, incompetence and lack of understanding of parliamentary business.
According to him, their actions have made it clear that they [members of COMAS] lack confidence in the leadership of the majority group in parliament and has further exposed their personal parliamentary ambitions.
He advised them to rather put their energies into how to save the sinking local governance system in order to improve the living standards of their people.
