The Member of Parliament for Madina, Francis Xavier Sosu has issued an apology over the usage of offensive language during the #OccupyBoG demonstration.
The apology comes after a video of him using of vulgar words on the Akufo-Addo led-government surfaced and went viral on social media.
The Minority in Parliament yesterday, October 3, 2023 embarked on a protest is aimed at compelling the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Ernest Addison and his two deputies to resign over the illegal printing of about GH¢ 80 billion between 2021 and 2022 which contributed to an inflation rate of 54.1% in December 2022.
The minority claims the BOG has mismanaged the finances of the country, resulting in hyper-inflation and pushing thousands into poverty.
A video that went viral after the protest, saw the respected lawyer using vulgar language. In the video, the lawmaker stated in Ga language if he were not a Member of Parliament, he would have insulted “their mothers”.
But in a statement, the lawyer rendered an unqualified apology adding that he used those words out of anger and extreme provocation.
“I unreservedly apologize for my actions and words and ask that all those offended would find a place in their hearts to forgive me. I am human and this only demonstrated the anguish, pain, frustrations and disappointment at the management of the Bank of Ghana and our current state of affairs as a country,” Lawyer Francis Sosu said in a statement.
