The outgoing Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has been invited by the Ghana Police over his comment that John Mahama should “declare himself president to form parallel government”.
This was contained in a letter sighted by ghdominancenews.com from Ghana Police Service to the Speaker of Parliament on December 22, 2020.
“The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service presents its compliment to the Right Honourable Speaker of Parliament”, the letter said.
“The CID is investigating a case in which Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Hon. Alhaji Inusah Fuseini on Pan African Television show made some comments that “I have said and I have advocated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flag bearer, John Dramani Mahama and former President of the Republic of Ghana declares himself President and forms a parallel government”, it further added.
The letter also asked the speaker to release the Tamale Central Constituency outgoing legislator to assist in investigations.
“It would be appreciated if you could release the aforementioned Member of Parliament to report to Director Operations/CID at the CID Headquarters, 2nd floor, Room 2 on Thursday.
24/12/2020 at 1000hours to assist investigations”, it pleaded.
In another letter by DEPUTY DIRECTOR of LEGAL SERVICES for clerks to parliament, Nana Tawiah Okyir and copied to Rt. Hon. Speaker, Hon. Majority Leader, Hon. Minority Leader, Hon. Minority Chief Whip, he wrote, “I am directed by the Rt. Hon. Speaker to bring to your attention the attached Letter of invitation from the Ghana Police Service requesting you to assist with ongoing investigations.”
“Mr. Speaker, having regard to the limitations of articles 117 and 118 of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic, and noting the fact that the House is currently adjourned sine die has asked that you make yourself available for the interaction with the Ghana Police on Thursday 24h December 2020 at 10am at the CID Headquarters, 2 Floor”, it further directed.
The former Roads and Highways Minister stated that the verdict of the Electoral Commission is not a true representation of the choice of Ghanaians on December 7.
According to him, John Dramani Mahama won the election hands down and hence, needs to declare himself the President and form a parallel government.
“I have said and I have advocated that he declares himself President and forms a parallel government. The impunity of this government which is legendary must stop and that’s how we stop it,’ he said on Pan African TV.
