Spread the love

North Tongu Member of Parliament(MP) Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has indicated that the Minority in Parliament and the National Democratic Congress(NDC) will take to the streets of Ghana if their case challenging the implementation of e-levy fails in the supreme court.

He says the NDC and its Parliamentarians will not be counted as one of the leaders in the country who betrayed the people of Ghana, and therefore they will fight to ensure that the right things are done for the people of Ghana.

Ablakwa who made this known in a post shared on Facebook said “We shall stand up to them in the Supreme Court on Wednesday the 4th of May; if we strangely fail in the courts as the Majority Group Leader and other NPP officials are curiously predicting, we shall take over the streets — what Nana Akufo-Addo (as he then was) did to the Rawlings government in 1995 with his VAT kumepreko demonstrations would be considered child’s play when historical comparisons are made. Don’t you mess with our unflinching resolve as the people’s representatives to stand with the suffering masses of our country”.

The lawmaker indicated that the Minority in Parliament had taken notice of the Attorney General’s response to their suit describing it as pathetic, insulting and dishonest.

“We have read the pathetic, insulting and dishonest response of the Attorney General to our case in court — he ridiculously seeks refuge in voice votes as though constitutional quorum thresholds don’t apply to voice votes. He very much knows that irrespective of the voting method in parliament— either by voice, headcount or secret ballot, the same constitutional quorum standards apply.”

Adding that “Or is The AG — government’s principal legal adviser, claiming to possess some supernatural powers capable of miraculously adding Adwoa Safo and Kojo Kum’s voices to a voice vote even though they were both not in the chamber of parliament present and voting? Surely, this defence and government’s infamous Neutrality Allowance will keenly compete for Ghana’s Most Ridiculous Award of the Decade”.

This is the day the Akufo-Addo government is determined to show Ghanaians and the world just how lawless, undemocratic and tyrannical they are by going ahead to wickedly impose the unconstitutional E-Levy.

But they underestimate the anger and resolve of Ghanaians.

We have read the pathetic, insulting and dishonest response of the Attorney General to our case in court — he ridiculously seeks refuge in voice votes as though constitutional quorum thresholds don’t apply to voice votes. He very much knows that irrespective of the voting method in parliament— either by voice, headcount or secret ballot, the same constitutional quorum standards apply.

Or is The AG — government’s principal legal adviser, claiming to possess some supernatural powers capable of miraculously adding Adwoa Safo and Kojo Kum’s voices to a voice vote even though they were both not in the chamber of parliament present and voting?

The only antidote for bullies and despots is to stand up and confront them as Article 3 of the 1992 Constitution demands of us.

We shall stand up to them in the Supreme Court on Wednesday the 4th of May; if we strangely fail in the courts as the Majority Group Leader and other NPP officials are curiously predicting, we shall take over the streets — what Nana Akufo-Addo (as he then was) did to the Rawlings government in 1995 with his VAT kumepreko demonstrations would be considered child’s play when historical comparisons are made. Don’t you mess with our unflinching resolve as the people’s representatives to stand with the suffering masses of our country.

We refuse to be counted amongst the leaders who painfully betrayed the Ghanaian people.

Governmental lawlessness and State-sponsored vandalization of our Constitution shall be defeated!

Our fervent prayer on this Sabbath day which the Lord commands us in Exodus 20:8 to keep holy but has unfortunately been violently desecrated by iniquitous merchants of an unconstitutional E-Levy is rather simple: “May God help us resist oppressor’s rule.”
