The Member of Parliament for Bongo Constituency in the Upper East Region, Hon. Edward Bawa, has reacted to a press release from the Christian Council of Ghana which condemned the E-levy fight that broke out in Parliament on the eve of Monday, December 20, 2021.
The statement issued by the Council on December 21 condemned the chaotic scenes in Parliament, stating that “we respectfully remind Parliamentarians that debates in Parliament must remain a platform for the exchange of ideas and not an opportunity for confusion and hostility. Ghanaians voted for you to engage in ‘debate not boxing’.”
According to the Council, what happened on Monday, December 20 on the floor of Parliament is unacceptable to say the least, and must be condemned.
Reacting to the press release from the Christian Council, Hon. Bawa stated that “in as much as what occurred in parliament on December 20 was regrettable, the Christian Council has lost its moral right to comment on issues of these nature.”
He believes that the Christian Council of Ghana should remain mute just like they have been right from the beginning of the Akufo-Addo-led New Patriotic Party administration.
“When did they find their voice?” he further questioned.
