The entrance of Ghana’s Parliament on Friday, 12th November 2021, witnessed a clash between South Dayi MP, Rockson Dafeamekpor, and Nhyiaeso MP, Stephen Amoah, over the authenticity of a picture used by the Majority side in a press address on the current tidal waves disaster in parts of the Volta Region.
The two MPs were seen angrily exchanging words and hurling insults at each other after the Minority disagreed with the stance of the Majority in Parliament on the Tidal waves disaster and their claim that sand winning and not the absence of the sea defence wall was the cause of the disaster that affected some residents in the Volta Region.
According to AdoaNews’s Parliamentary Correspondent, Mary Quartey, the engagement by the Minority became heated after the authenticity of a picture used by the Majority side during the press conference was disputed by the Minority.
It was during the Minority side’s attempt to respond to the press conference that the two Members of Parliament nearly clashed in the heated tussle
Rockson Dafeamekpor could be seen telling Stephen Amoah to leave the lectern to make way for the minority to have its press conference.
“Don’t come and misbehave here, when you were talking nobody came here”
Rockson Dafeamekpor hurled.
The Nhyiaeso MP also kept yelling and retorting, adding that he won’t leave.
It took the intervention of other colleagues of the legislators to calm tension.
