"Let’s parlay respectively"- Palgrave Boakye-Danquah calls for restraints on both sides of the house

Government's Spokesperson on Governance and Security, Palgrave Boakye-Danquah has called for peace between both members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Parliament.


According to Mr. Boakye-Danquah, MPs from both sides should parlay respectively.


In a Facebook post sighted by Thinknewsonline.com, Mr. Palgrave Boakye-Danquah said "What just happened on the floor of Parliament yesterday?"


"Did my brother and friend Murtala Mohammed accuse Minister Ursula?"


"Did Minister Ursula rebut angrily to Murtala’s accusations by expressing acts with wife, daughter and mother of Murtala?"


"Wow wow wow wow wow wow… Restraint on both sides of the house. Let's parlay respectively"


The call from Palgrave Boakye-Danquah who doubles as an Aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Abuakwa North Constituency on the ticket of the NPP comes following a heated exchange of words between two Members of Parliament (MPs).


Background

It will be recalled that the Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, on Wednesday clashed with her fellow MP for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Muhammad on the floor of the house over some unprintable words on the Human Sexual Right and Ghanaian Family Values Bill (LGBTQ+), 2021.


The heated exchanges occurred during the second reading of the bill on the floor of Parliament.


It is emerging that the house had unanimously adopted the report on the bill which championed by the Asante Akim North MP, Andy Appiah-Kubi.


The Second Deputy Speaker, Andrew Asiamah, turned to the MPs, and allowed them to share their thoughts on the bill.


Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful veered off the discussion to condemn some utterances from her colleague, Honourable Murtala Muhammed.


Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful allegedly that she heard Murtala Muhammed whispering at the back saying she was a practitioner of same sex.


Although, Murtala did not speak into the microphone and, therefore, could not be regarded as an official statement, the Ablekuma West MP said, she heard it.


In her reply she also allegedly tagged Murtala Muhammed as mad.


Both MPs later withdrew their unsavoury comments and apologised to eachother.
