The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, has refused to accept an apology from Mohammed Sulemana, who assaulted him during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
According to a Citinewsroom report, George argued that Sulemana’s apology was to Ghana, and not personally to him, as his name was not mentioned.
“The gentleman did not mention my name in his apology when he was making his testimony on Friday.

Therefore, he is apologizing to the country. I am in not a place to accept for the country. A specific apology to me for the assault, I didn’t hear that,” George said.
Sulemana, a member of the national security SWAT team, admitted, before the Emile Short Commission on Friday, March 8, 2019, that he erred when he assaulted George.
He however explained that the MP provoked him with ethnocentric insults when he saw his tribal marks.
According to him, George “was shouting around the place” and “that is why I came down to knock him.”
He however stated that he was unaware at the time that George was an MP, and he may not even recognize him again if they met in future.
He also noted, “Usually when I go on operations, I sit in the car until when there is any arrest before I come down to assist with the arrest.”
