The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has eaten humble pie and requested for forgiveness after he was dragged to the Chief Justice for disparaging a High Court judge, Sulemana Issifu, after an order provided against him over a piece land.
He has actually been summoned for contempt after being accused of calling him “stupid” on a tv station.
The outspoken MP is stated to have “scandalised” and also “threatened” the court and also, by extension, the court in an ongoing land case which he declared Justice Wuni gave a judgement without his knowledge.
However Mr Agyapong, in an apology statement to the Chief Justice and the Magistrates Association of Ghana, stated he has nothing against the courts, including that he went too far with his activities.
” I want to use this opportunity to render an apology to the judges for what I said the other time, In fact, I went too far and over-reacted so please forgive me.
“I have nothing against the judges, most of them are my friends and they have called me. They are not happy because I fought Anas for them and if suddenly I’m behaving this way, it is not the best. So I’m sorry, forgive me,” the statement said.
