The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak is backing calls for investigation into the invasion of the military into the Chamber of Parliament on January 7, when the MPs were in the process of electing a Speaker.
This, according to Dr. Apaak, is despite the attempts by the members of the NPP to justify the action of the military.
In a post on Facebook, the legislator said the NPP’s side were seated comfortably even when the soldiers walked in the chamber but proceeded to the side of the NDC, an indication that they were brought in to intimidate the NDC MPs.
“Truth is that before the military trooped into the Chamber both sides were seated. And if they came in to breakup komini, why is it that when they entered and both sides were seated, they were proceeding to our NDC side? That was why our side decided to meet them in the middle.”

Folks, you see why I can’t cool down. We can’t sweep the invasion of Parliament by the military under the carpet.
Have you noticed how NPP folks are busy justifying this unjustified abomination: they acted professionally; they entered on their own because they felt the MPs elect were a danger to themselves; they came in because our democracy was at risk; they came into the chamber to restore calm.
Truth is that before the military trooped into the Chamber both sides were seated. And if they came in to breakup komini, why is it that when they entered and both sides were seated, they were proceeding to our NDC side? That was why our side decided to meet them in the middle.
Anyone who saw the proceedings will confirm that the NPP side was comfortably seated when we rose to challenge the invasion of the August Chamber by the military. What did the NPP side know? Is it not obvious that they invited them and is that not why they want the abomination overlooked?
There must be a probe whether Yaw Buaben Asamoa and his elk like it or not. You bring in the military to intimidate us so that you can steal a mandate and you think it should just pass, na big fat lie bro!
I remain a citizen!
