There was a near brawl at the foyer of parliament over the tidal wave devastation in the Volta region as some members of the majority clashed with minority MPs on Friday, November 12, 2021.
Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, MP for South Dayi, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the Deputy Majority Leader, and Stephen Amoah, Nhyiaeso MP were involved in an altercation that almost disrupted the minority’s presser in relation to the tidal waves.
Earlier the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ketu South, Dzifa Abla Gomashie expressed disappointment in what she says is the continuing silence of President Akufo-Addo on communities affected by tidal waves at Aflao and Keta in the Volta Region.
Speaking to Starr FM, the MP said the area feels abandoned describing the President’s silence as unfortunate.
“This is a disaster; many homes have been lost. You think I am going to run away, no. But the image of it brings me tears. What will be reassuring will be to hear His Excellency at least to say, I see you, I hear you and I understand this is happening to you.
“I have got you covered. It may take time but I got you covered. Even that has not been said. But I am still a woman of faith and still hopeful,” she stated.
