Akufo-Addo To Be Impeached By Parliament?

The Ghanaian US based investigative journalist, Kevin Ekow Taylor has stated that member of parliament for North Tongu constituency, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has indicated that President Akufo-Addo should be impeached for breaking the Imposition of Restrictions Act, 2020 (Act 1012) by attending the funeral of former General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, aka Sir John some few days ago which was discussion amongst Ghanaians in the country.

According to Kevin Taylor's news report on his social media wall, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said he would consider starting an impeachment process for he believes that the President must take responsibility for conducting himself inappropriately.

"And the sad part is that, not a word from the President. He has not expressed remorse. It is as though nothing happened" Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa said in the first place.

Kevin Taylor however reported that the North Tongu MP cited the fact that organisers of the Pneumatic night at the International Trade Fair Centre are being prosecuted for violating the same law, that the principle should be applied to patrons of Sir John’s funeral, including the President as well as the organisers of the funeral.

"And how do we explain that when it is the ordinary Joe, when it’s pastors, organisers of Christ Embassy Youth Church (CEYC) event, we halt them, we invite them, we take them on.

"I know of others who are serving jail time, in the early days of the pandemic. Young pastors who wouldn’t obey the protocols had to do time in prison. I think some of them are even still in jail. I recall visiting a particular pastor from Hohoe who was in jail" he urged the Ghana Police Service to investigate the matter and prosecute all those who will be found culpable.

This has left a lot of questions that people will ask as to if the Ghana Police Service can investigate such a trending issue and make their final submission to parliament for impeachment of president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as Okudzeto Ablakwa urged, and punished those who will be found guilty.

Already, a lot of people has stated that chief Justice of supreme court Anin Yeboah, should availed himself for prosecution because he shouldn't have involved himself in attending sir John's funeral as far as the law is in the bosom of the judges.

Ghanaians will wait and see if Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa could file a statement to parliament demanding for President Nana Akufo-Addo's impeachment from the presidency.
