Mr. Suhiyini also recalled that he issued similar threats on the same Network to the late Ahmed Suale before the Journalist was gunned down in cold blood by unknown assailants.

The Rt Hon Speaker just accepted my request to exercise his discretion under Order 27 of the House Standing Orders and refer the Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong to the Privileges Committee of Parliament, for conduct that continuously bring the name of Parliament into disrepute and an affront to the dignity of the House.
This, I deem necessary because of his latest threat on the life of Joyfm Journalist, Erastus Asare Donkor, on his Net 2 TV program “The Attitude”.
It will be recalled that he issued similar threats on the same Network to the late Ahmed Suale before the Journalist was gunned down in cold blood by unknown assailants.
I thank Mr Speaker for indulging me and I hope and pray the members of the committee will put the interest of the nation above partisan considerations.
