Honourable Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, MP for Nadowli-Kaleo has been slammed by many for his comments on the appointment of Mr. Daanaa, a blind man as minister of chieftaincy by John Mahama while in power. He has also come under intense criticism for his undiplomatic remarks on the appointment of “Stammerer” Omani Boamah deputy Minister of Information by same administration.
The most recent of such statements has come from the controversial comedienne Afia Shwarzengger. In a video circulating on social media, she described Mr. Bagbin as being mentally ill and needing check up. She also lambasted him for cheating on his wife with her kid sister, getting her pregnant in the process.
“Some behaviors of our members of parliament are absurd to say the least. I think now if some people want to go and contest they should have their brain checked to see if everything is okay because for someone who’s been in parliament all these years, for some one who’s traveled across nations like Alban Bagbin to make such statements about Dr. Daanaa tht he’s blind and shouldn’t be allowed to speak to some people. Are you mad?…..” she said.
ABOUT THE STATEMENTS
A tape emerged last week and Hon. Bagbin was heard explaining why some appointments by John Mahama was unwise and eventually led to the abysmal performance of the NDC in the 2016 general elections. He added the appointment of a blind Dr. Daanaa as Minister of chieftaincy was opposed by many influential chiefs because traditionally, “people who are not whole” are not allowed to be leaders.
Hon. Bagbin is among 11 others vying for the flagbearer position of the NDC, John Mahama himself inclusive having declared his intention to run for the position on Thursday 23rd August.
