First of all one may ask, who is Honorable Carlos Ahenkorah.
He is a Ghanaian politician and the Member of Parliament of Tema West constituency. Honorable Carlos Ahenkorah is a member of the New Patriotic Party. He was the deputy minister for Trade and Industry in Ghana. He is also the CEO of Carlos King Freight Services.
Honorable Carlos Ahenkorah, is said to have snatched the papers upon learning that former Nadowli Kaleo MP Alban Bagbin had beaten Prof Mike Oquaye in the Speaker race. ( The Speaker of the Parliament of Ghana is the presiding officer of the Parliament of Ghana. The current speaker is Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin. He was elected on 7 January 2021).
And although a number of people have come out to condemn the act even his own party members, some still think honorable Carlos Ahenkorah should be made to face a penalty because an act of that nature doesn’t speak well of the Ghanaian Parliament at all.
The above footage shows a very unacceptable act by the honorable Carlos Ahenkorah, some call it a hilariously shocking action, and others ask ‘ what then stands to show that hon Carlos Ahenkorah won his election as member of parliament without cheating’. What should be the way forward, are Ghanaians really safe in the hands of the current members of parliament.
You can put your suggestions in the comment section below. One interesting suggestion made by a Ghanaian youth was that; the age at which one can become a member of parliament should be reduced down to 16, because there are adolescents in the country who can act more mature.
