Member of Parliament (MP) for Suhum in the Eastern Region, Kwadjo Asante, has condemned a free-for-all fight which occurred on Saturday, August, 28 at a funeral of a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which led to one person sustaining cutlass wounds.
He described the incident as “unfortunate”.
The MP has also denied the purported involvement of his driver in the clash.
“I wish to state categorically that my personal driver was not involved in the case, neither was there any cutlass nor implement picked from my car as has been alleged in the media.”
“I further wish to state that the conflict had nothing to do with H.E, the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, or the Hon. Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Allan Kyeremanteng. I wish to pray that these eminent leaders of my party, the New Patriotic Party, are accorded the needed respect and dignity and not brought into this unfortunate incident”, he said in an August 30 release.
