The Ejisu lawmaker says “we are not leaving any stone unturned and also not leaving anything to chance so storming Parliament as early as 3:00am will ensure we claim what belongs us which is the majority side”.
Lawyer John Kumah added that “as far as we are concerned with the inclusion of Fomena MP to our side, we are the Majority Caucus so it’s in line for us to be here in Parliament this early to secure the right side of Parliament”.
He further explained some of the parliamentarians even slept in Parliament and as early as 5:00am, all 138 MPs clad in white attire had already taken their seats.
