The law must be fair to every Ghanaian – Margaret Ansei Magoo

A communication team member of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has indicated that the laws of Ghana ought to be fair to every Ghanaian and treat everybody equally.

Responding to the calls made by some spokespersons from the New Patriotic Party for Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa to be sanctioned by the Court for allegedly treating a court injunction with disrespect, the vociferous communicator insisted that Hon. Ablakwa has not done anything to deserve such calls.

Hon. Ablakwa has been seen allegedly kicking a document purported to be a court injunction thrown at him by a supposed Bailiff at the premises of Metro TV.

The circulation of the video has led to several calls from the NPP communication team members for Hon. Ablakwa to be sanctioned for his action.

Speaking on the Good Morning Ghana show on Metro TV on Monday, 6th February 2023, monitored by betterghanadigest.com, Madam Margaret Ansei Magoo questioned the action of the Supposed Bailiff.

“Why would the Bailiff throw the document on the floor and expect Hon. Ablakwa to pick it, why are those calling for Ablakwa to be sanctioned not talking about the action of the Bailiff? The law is clear that a member of parliament cannot be served a court notice on his way to or when performing his/her parliamentary duties and yet the Bailiff insisted on serving him the injunction even when he stated that he was on his way to parliament”.

According to her, the law should not break one part of it to protect another part.

“If people think that the Court should punish Hon. Ablakwa, it means that they are asking the court to dishonor itself because the Bailiff broke the law by insisting on serving the lawmaker with the injunction while he was on his way to performing his parliamentary duties.”

If the Court can punish Ablakwa for kicking its document, then it must as well punish the Bailiff for throwing its document on the ground. The law must be fair to every Ghanaian”. She insisted.
