Once again, the issue of the quorum for voting was raised on the floor of Parliament. And this time, the NDC Member of Parliament for the Talensi Constituency, Honorable Benson Baba Tongo, had to confront the outspoken Member of Parliament for the Asokwa constituency, Honorable Kobina Tahir Mohammed for trying to force his way so that a bill presented by the Attorney General, Godfred Dame, be put to question or vote so that it will be passed quickly.
"I think that KT Hammond made a very big mistake by referring to the numbers here as insignificant. The 1992 constitution article 104 is very clear about issues of this nature. So if you are making an appeal, make that appeal and stop forcing your way", the Talensi MP boldly stated.
KT Hammond quickly interjected him and said that he never implied that.
Responding to that, the Talensi MP said," You made a comment to that effect. I want you to know that I am talking from the constitution and you must respect it because you are not above it."
