The Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has rained curses on colleagues in the Minority who voted for the ministerial approval.
According to him, those colleagues he described as traitors will pay dearly for approving the ministers and the Supreme Court Justices.
He prayed that the traitors are found and publicly shamed and if not found the person’s conscience should hunt him or her forever.
“I pray you are found out and publicly shamed, but even if you are not found out, your conscience will forever haunt you.
“The pain and agony your treachery has caused millions of party supporters and Ghanaians is upon your head,” Dr. Apaak posted these on his social media page.
He added “You will pay for the tears and sorrow of all those you have betrayed. You will pay for the insults, name calling and false accusations your treachery has brought upon innocent colleagues.
“May you never find peace until you confess, repent and ask for forgiveness.”
