Former Minister of Roads and Highways Member of Parliament for Tamale Central in the Northern Region, Hon. Inusah Fuseini has slammed Minister of Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah that the Parliament house is not an entertainment center.
According to Hon. Fuseini on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, he insisted that Kojo Oppong Nkrumah’s usage of the phrase ‘Papa no’ did not merit the discussion on the floor of parliament.
“We all know that ‘Papa no’ is coming from social media between two ladies who decided to make public their promiscuous lifestyles and that was where they use the word ‘Papa no’ [that man]; how can this come to Parliament? Words take their colours from their surroundings. Check what Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said, read it again, and ask yourself where does the ‘Papa no’ come in?” he rhetorically asked.
“Parliament is not a place for entertainment; we go there to make laws, and so we don’t play over there. If you look at our standing orders, we have a word you cannot use in Parliament. We also have orders that say that we cannot speak against someone who is not in Parliament to respond to the issue; it will be unfair to speak ill of somebody who is not on the floor of the House,” he chastised.
